My Gallery

I just started posting my latest scrapbook pages at My Scrapbook Art if you are interested in checking out any of my work.  How often I put layouts in the gallery depends on how many photobooks I am working on, and how well the kids are sleeping!!  Here is the latest one that I added of my beautiful girl:

Elements from “Worn” by One Little Bird Designs and Sahlin Studios.

My previous gallery is with Stampin’ Up at where I have almost 100 pages that I made over the last year and a half.

Thanks for stopping by,   Leah

It’s Time to Catch up on Baby Books!

I think 2012 should be the year everyone stops procrastinating and finally finishes those baby books!  How many times have you thought about getting your baby photos organized and put into books? And how many times have you started only to give up after a few pages?  To make matters worse, now you probably have two or three kids and and there is no way you have the time or energy to make keepsake books for all of them! Lucky for you, you know someone who loves making baby books. One of my main motivating factors for starting Birdwing Paper Designs is that I don’t want any child to grow up and not have a beautiful baby book.  Both of my kids have their own First Year scrapbook as well as a little story book that I created using all those baby photos.  My son is almost four and he already loves looking at pictures of himself as a baby and reading the story made just for him. My latest project that I have started for all you moms is a First Year Baby Book.  Here is a look at the kit I will be using to make it from Kitty Designs at

Here is a sample of the Baby Boy book:

And this is how it is changed up for a Baby Girl book:

With this photobook I am doing a similar process as with the 2012 Family photobook in that you can send me your photos every month so you don’t get overwhelmed by the thousands of photos of your baby(ies).  This is a 12 month project that will cover the first year of your baby’s life and you can start this any time you are ready. If you would like more information about this project, please email me: or leave a comment.  Let’s stop procrastinating and just get it done!! Leah

New Product: Kids Room Art

I have been thinking about what new product to showcase for Christmas.  Lots of ideas ran through my head, but I decided to do personalized art for kids rooms.  The elements of the page stay the same, I just change the photo and name to your child.  I have a couple ready to go-one for a boy, a girl  and one for christmas, 12″x12″, printed professionally, and just needs to be put in your favorite frame.

If you are interested in ordering any of these, they are $25.00 each.  You can contact me at and I will give you all the details I need to know.  Just be sure to order before November 1, 2011 to make sure your picture is here for Christmas.

The wall art I have for the boy was inspired by this kit called “Monsters Under My Bed” by Micheline Martine of After Five Designs and I knew this would be perfect for a little boys room. (Most of the pictures in my samples are my kids, but I change up the name so I am not always making pages with Casey and Robyn on them.)

For the first girls art I had to do something pretty, pink, and flowery.  This page uses digital designs from Biograffiti with a kit called “Baby Love”.

This Christmas inspired page was actually the first one I made (since I was thinking of Christmas projects).   I used a kit that I love called “Adorned” from Paislee Press-it is a little christmassy without being over the top.  This is the only one I have framed, so I took a picture to show you what it looks like in a frame.  (Sorry for the poor photo, eventually I will get a better camera!)

I hope you like these products and I am working on more wall art sized at 8 1/2″ x 11″.   Suggestions for themes are more than welcome and if you have a specific theme you would like, just contact me at
