Pregnancy Mini Book – Week 20, Week 21

These two weeks photos are some of my favourites. The layout for week 20 in particular is one of my favs as well. :) This middle of the pregnancy is my favourite stage – my belly is at the perfect size. Until about week 32 I think – then it’s getting a bit big! haha!

Above: Ages ago I got these little tags and I love using them on layouts.

Below: You can see that I stamped the wrong date here, but I used a pen to fix it up. Thankfully it wasn’t a big difference.

Pregnancy Mini Book – Week 18, Week 19

Weeks 18 & 19 next (duh!). These weeks are some of my favourite outfits as well as some of my favourite pages. :)

Week 18 again has hidden journalling. I love these brown kraft coloured envelopes. They’re really sturdy, and would make great little card envelopes for handmade cards if you didn’t want to use them for scrapbooking…

As you can see I kept things pretty simple with this layout – these gold stars from Studio Calico are a firm favourite of mine and I use them often.

Again, a pretty simple layout. No embellishments, just the papers which I’ve listed below.

Pregnancy Mini Book – Week 16, Week 17

I’m surprised it’s taken me as long as it has to start liking mini books, because really, they’re perfect. I love this 6×6 size I’ve been working with – great with the 3×4 photos, some journalling and couple of embellishments.

This is weeks 16 & 17 of the pregnancy which were taken when we were in Japan.

I actually love the Amy Tangerine Roller Date Stamp. It’s an older one now, but seriously one of my favourites. I’ve used it to mark the date on each page.

More hidden journalling in this one. I wasn’t specific about when the journalling was hidden and when it was visible. Probably sometimes things should have been hidden where visible and vice-versa, but I don’t really mind either way.

Writing the journalling for this mini book was easy because I wrote a blog post every week with details of that week’s events. You can view all those entries here, or just view week 16 here and week 17 here.

Pregnancy Mini Book – Week 14, Week 15

pregnancyminibook12

With my first pregnancy I didn’t take any belly photos until I felt like I was actually “showing” properly. This time around I didn’t worry. I took them even if they just showed the normal me for the first few weeks! I did this for two reasons – firstly to keep the consistency of the whole pregnancy from trimester 2 (which is pretty standard for bump photos), and secondly because even if it wasn’t showing my tummy growing exactly, I still had thoughts, feelings, and milestones to document for those weeks, and there is no harm in having a photo of me for those weeks as I’m the one going through it!

Here are some details of the week 14 page:

Above: As you can see I included the journalling in this little envelope, and just used some kraft card stock to make the letter inside. Simple!

The other papers I used was the Studio Calico Atlantic Vellum “Jamestown“, and “Nantucket“.

Below: Week 15.
