Hullabaloo Stories Design Blog
Welcome to Hullabaloo Stories! Create your own family stories with memorable books, projects, printables and more.
Well our family is anyway. We are expecting a baby boy in November! So get your holiday orders in now, haha. Just kidding, we plan to take a little time off to enjoy our baby but have some books in the works now and plan to be up and running in time for holiday orders.
Don’t forget to become our fan on facebook for updates on all things Hullabaloo.
…and take a peek below as I have finally updated the blog with a few of the projects completed over the past few months.
I am a very biased mommy but I loved this book. I now realize what my customers go through when trying to narrow down their photos. I finally took the stance that each month I wanted to capture what the most important thing in her life was, not just my favorite photos. It was tough but I love this book and we read it all the time. Now that she’s two I guess I better get a new book started.
Avery’s mama is a good friend of mine and when she was headed home to visit family and wanted to come up with a really creative way to announce some big news…we devised this great book for her.
We left the last page blank so that they could add an ultrasound photo in a little pocket but then eventually replace that with a photo of her and her sibling.
Perhaps its because my best friend and I had a personalized book when we were kids or because these two little boys are just about the cutest little friends every, but these books were so fun to make. I made two books but switched around the wording for each boy so his book had his name first.
I love creating books about families, maybe because that was my original intent when starting Hullabaloo Stories. This was a fun book to make, how could it not be, how cute is this little guy?
This little guy and his daddy make a really great pair. They have a lot of fun together and its quite obvious. We had to decide between a lot of photos to narrow it down to the ones that made it in the book since these two keep each other very busy. I hope a Happy Father’s Day was had by all!
This book was really fun to make. Not only was it about my daughter and some of her favorite friends but the photo shoot involved was a blast.
A wonderful photographer (and friend of mine) came up to Virginia from North Carolina to do this photo shoot, Morgan Henderson of Morgan Henderson Photography. The kids had so much fun playing and they all looked so cute. What a fun way to have some memories and great pictures. Most of the parents used the photos as their child’s two year photos since two year olds and photo studios don’t mix too well.
Do you have photos of your child’s play group. If you are interested in multiple books with the same design discounts are available.
For board books, background papers can give the book just as much “extra” personality as a really cute fabric. I have been playing with background papers for a while now and recently a customer asked me if I could send her a file with some of the papers in it so she could choose what she liked. I realized that I should make some boards with the papers on them.
I am starting with the kids basics, green, pink and blue. Of course I have used purples, yellows and oranges as well. These can be mixed and matched on 8×8 books. For example I did all pinks and greens on my daughter’s one year book because those are her nursery colors.
