Scrapbooking for Piglet

Everyone has told me there is no way I will have much time to do scrapbook pages for Baby No 2 – poor Piglet! I’m not daft and can probably see the truth in this.

I started scrapbooking in January 2014, a year before I started blogging. I remember not having a clue what I was doing, feeling totally overwhelmed at the pages I saw on Pinterest and Instagram but at the same time I was hooked. I used to think about it all the time. I was always looking at pages for inspiration, on Ebay for crafts to buy and I wanted to scrap all the time. This was quite hard with a 5 month old but I managed it when she was asleep. There was a great period when the gremlin used to spend about 2 hours in her cot in the afternoon either sleeping or just chatting to herself. I got loads of scrapping done then!

Since I started blogging in January 2015, time has got less and I haven’t done as many pages. I do miss it when I have a long gap but going back to work made it a lot harder to fit some scrapping in. So I decided I needed to do a few pages for Piglet and get a bit ahead before she was born. Maternity leave was a perfect time! I’m a regular subscriber to a monthly US based kit; Hip Kit Club¬†and I get some great stuff. The also give out cut files for my Silhouette Cameo (which is a machine that can cut intricate designs for you on card, paper, fabric).

Here is a bit of a showcase of my work.

The first page you will have seen if you saw my pregnancy announcement!

The second page was me tracking my scans at 8, 12, 16 and 20 weeks.

Then I have a couple from holiday, bump shots and time with hubby.

Finally, I did a page with a lovely pic of me and my oldest school friend from school who made me an amazing nappy cake!

I’m already getting behind with the gremlin’s scrapping so god knows how I will do any when this Piglet comes but I’m sure I will find a little time.

I’m just glad she has a few pages done already! Bless!
