Canvas Corp paper collection has all the colors and designs to inspire you to create a unique keepsake for a special moment or someone precious in your life. Combine a Canvas Corp Denim journal cover with the sweet baby pink colors of the Canvas Corp Baby papers and make an baby album to hold your photos and memories in. Not familiar with book binding? No problem; in this step by step tutorial Crew member Kyriakos uses Canvas Corp Kraft Cards to make pages for the photo album, while the denim cover provides a beautiful and safe “case” to keep everything in.
“First moments, first photos, first year of your baby, all of them gathered and kept in a handmade photo album. Relatively easy to make and expandible further just by adding more card pages. Either made for you or as a gift, it works as a nice piece to keep memories and special moments of a baby to have for years after”. – says Kyriakos.

Step 1 – Cut the large letters and two round designs from the Baby Girl sampler page. From the canvas sheet cut two circle shapes a bit larger than the round designs. Fringe the edges and paint them with the Tattered angels Bold red mist.
Step 2 – Glue a piece of the 7gypsies lace to the bottom part of the Canvas Corp Journal cover and continue with previously cut embellishments.
Step 3 – Cut some Canvas Corp hemp rope and separate it to thinner strings, thin enough to pass through the wooden button holes.
Step 6 – Take one of the Krafts cards and decorated with paper cuttings from the Canvas Corp Baby collection. This card holds the first and the last pages of the photo album and will be placed in the elastic cord of the cover and in its pockets.
Step 7- Take a stitched greeting Kraft card and decorated on the front and back parts. Remember that the sides of the card will be facing other pages as you place them in the cord of the journal. This means that you have to plan in advance what you will have first, second etc. In this case, the stitched denim side will be the right side of the album when we open it (left will be the previous step card quotes side).
Step 8 – Add little Kraft envelopes with cards to make pockets for some writing space.
The first year of your baby is now well kept in this baby photo album. Choose blue or pink, or why not trying any other color from the variety of Canvas Corp papers and craft a second album for the following years or use this tutorial for birthdays and important dates of life.
