2 Month Baby Girl Layout

Today's post is to show a layout I've done to add to the baby album I am working on for a friend of mine. She was due on Thursday, and the baby hasn't decided to come yet! We are anxiously waiting for Tatum Lynn to shine her face, but she is taking her sweet time!

I used Plantin Schoolbook for the font and numbers, and used 2 different Stampin' Up! Sizzix dies for the butterflies. I found a butterfly stamp to add a bit more butterflies around the layout. I added some bling to a few of the butterflies and some Prima Say it with Pearls to the layout itself. I used a Stampin' Up! tab punch on the photo mat to make the layout unique.

Please let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!

I can only Imagine

This is a wooden box I bought from Michael's and covered with cardstock using modpodge. I sanded the edges, and then I cut the word imagine by welding the letters together on my Gypsy. I used the Songbird cartridge for that, and the swirl was from the Cindy Loo cartridge. I then used some Basic Grey pearls to dress up the box. I adhered a few flowers that were clasped with a brad to finish it off. I put one word ideas in the middle so my partner that received this could use her imagination, or get her mojo going to get creative! I think I might need one of these for myself!

 Please let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!

The Great Outdoors

I made a mini album all about the great outdoors. I covered a circle Colorbok mini album in outdoor papers with birch bark, pine cones, and pine trees. I used cuts from the A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge. I used the top note die from Stampin' Up, and some making memories glittered flourishes to make this mini as special as possible. I also added some things I had in my stash, and tried using the Tim Holtz fragments, and was pretty happy with the outcome. I inked all the edges with Staz-On Timber Brown. I made a few extra fold out spots. One is for photos, and one is for a journaling section, and anything else special to be added. I'm sorry for the poor photo of the fold out area for photos. I had some embossed stickers and rub ons on hand to dress this mini album up.

 Please do let me know what you think! I am liking this mini, and hoping the recipient likes it too!

Happy Mother's Day!

Here is the Mother's Day card that I made for my mother. I handmade the flower using a Stampin' Up! Scallop circle punch. I will eventually make a video on how to make these. Super easy! I used a Stampin' Up! Sizzix Sizzlit to create the leaves, and two retired Stampin' Up! Stamps for the sentiment and images. These stamps were at the scrapbooking retreat I stayed at! Michelle's Memory Loft in La Porte Indiana is a real treasure! If anyone has the chance to go, please do! Reasonable prices, and just a gorgeous place to stay! Thanks for looking, and let me know what you think! Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's, grandmas, and mom's to be out there!!!
