The Modern Baby Book

When my son turned one, I thought it would be extra special to have a photo album on display at his party to showcase to the world his first, joyful year on earth. Oh, but wait! Life with a child is crazy and this was simply not an option. Funny I should say this now. After all, I am a “SAHM”, right? I thought putting my career on hold would give me all the time in the world to be on top of crafty projects such as these. Funny, that it isn’t at all the case.

I also can’t remember the last time I had photos printed so how am I ever going to get baby’s first year book together? Project Nursery subscriber and NYC career mom, Kelly Cahill shared with us a brilliant solution: How Fast They Grow, created by self-proclaimed “Scrapbook dropout” and Mom Cathy Bennett.
How Fast They Grow is a one of a kind “Digi-scrapbook®”: A drag and drop digitial scrapbook with over 270 templates to choose from. Even better, How Fast They Grow has just unveiled 54 new design templates from Pincushion, a new company founded by Aimee deLongchamp of the San Francisco Bay Area. Aimee, a renowned Bay Area textile designer, brings over a decade of experience designing for leading children’s fashion and home companies like Pottery Barn Kids, Esprit and the 2008 Gap Nursery collection to these adorable new templates.
So if you are just as impressed as we are, you have until July 3rd to get it together (check out the step by step demo). Be sure to mention “projectnursery” at checkout and receive 20% off your entire order. And if you are headed to a baby shower or in need of a gift for a recent arrival, give a How Fast They Grow gift certificate and you’ll make mom’s job a whole lot easier! A truly modern take on the baby book for modern families.
