So the woman wants me to do her son's baby book. She wants me to use the actual baby book, filling in the pre-planned pages and using the extra pages (there are about 20) for the scrapbooking. The only problem is that they are this off white (looks old) page that is about 8 1/2 by 11 with curved corners. My question is - should I cover that page with colored paper or just use that like a background and add my mats and embellishments. The other thing I think will be weird is that the paper in the book is shiney, and my paper is not. I spent the evening filling in as much as possible with pictures and words (she hadn't written anything in it). Tomorrow, I hope I don't bug her too much as I type the questions on the book and write her answers. I'm sure glad I stayed on top of Paige's book.

Loving my newest siggie from Dakota's Mom!

Hm, that would be tough - especially to fill in the preplanned pages... does she have notes for you to go off or are you having to call her with each question?

As for covering the pages I think I'd have to see the book. If its a bound book I'd worry that covering the pages would make the book too thick and thus messy. Adding the photos and embellishments would regardless, but adding the extra paper would make it even more so. Also, are the pre-planned pages the same glossy off white background? If so I think I might just stick with using that as the background so that the pre-planned pages flow into the planned ones.
You could still use blocks of paper and such to add to the pages and cover a lot of the glossy paper and add a bit of color, then just leave a bit of it showing on some of the pages and I think that would look okay - I guess use the glossy paper as the base to your layout - some pages could have a lot of it showing, some a little, but that way it all flows. At least thats how I'd probably do it from what you described. Hopefully that makes sense!

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy! ~*~ Blog ~*~bfp Chart
