Final Baby Book Finishing Touches

Final Baby Book Finishing Touches

HOW I FOUND THE MOTIVATION TO FINALLY FINISH

I finally got the inspiration I had been longing for to finish my little girl’s baby book! Isn’t that the best feeling? I had printed up plenty of pictures and placed journal cards, and even added sticky notes with ideas, but just couldn’t bring myself to finish. Once she hit 18 months old I started to feel a little ridiculous about the fact that her baby book was still on my to-do list. Lucky for me, an idea struck while creating some “Currently” Journal Cards for my pen friends. With the selling our home, the holidays, and then unpacking into our new temporary home, I have been unnaturally slow to reply to their letters. I figured a cute little card would be a fun way to give some updates.

As the cards were coming together, I realized that these could be a perfect way to that I could quickly and beautifully fill the baby album. There were just a few spots keeping me down, but it appears I was just waiting for the right stamps!

WHEN INSPIRATION STRIKES, SOMETIMES IT STRIKES IN MULTIPLE PLACES.

In the short time that my baby girl has been around there have been countless changes. I hope to provide her with a good glimpse of the things she can’t recall years from now. I find myself looking back now at fond memories that I’ve already started to forget. I’m already so glad I took a bajillion pictures and kept incredible notes.

I knew as soon as I saw the Right Now Stamp Set that it’s versatility would be my jumping off point, but I became even more inspired as I worked. I paired the stamps with some inks that matched the rest of the spread, and created a simple filler with relevant information. Easy peasy.

I used this set in my bullet journal, our family photo album, the baby book, and for my penpals. I love Everyday Explorers stamp sets because I always find a use for them in multiple places. This time I just went a little stamp crazy.

I am just about caught up on Isla’s book now. I’ve got to print and cut photos from this past Halloween and Christmas, and then I’m DONE! It’ll likely be completed this week.

Yay me. – V

What’s in your shop?

Stickers first and foremost. I started the shop after I realized I wasn't the only paper girl who was itching for simple stickers for women of color. You'll find digitally illustrated sticker sheets, die cut stickers, and printable/digital stickers. 

Limited-time products also include: magnets, bookmarks, post cards, and greeting cards. 


How’d you get started?

I started the blog almost five years ago as an outlet for myself, but it quickly transitioned into being just about my hobbies: travel, taking photos, and scrapbooking.

Through my blogging journey I discovered bullet journaling and my scrapbooking passions were re-ignited. I began sharing my journey with these and quickly saw a need for the stickers I was already making for myself. I gave myself six months to open up a shop, and half way through my time frame we lived through a pandemic. During my time at home I now had NO MORE excuses, so I opened up my shop!


Why the name Love Becomes Her?

I started the blog on Halloween night and one of my favorite movies (Death Becomes Her) was on. I was a major cynic back in the day but I felt that the name suited the blog because at the time so many of my blog posts were around my long-distance relationship with my now-husband. I always assumed I'd change the name later, but I think I just love it too much. It reminds me of how far I have come with learning love
