So I needed a break from making Christmas cards and I am a little behind in my baby Neice Amelia's scrapbook for Grandma (my mam).
I have all the photos with the dates in the wallets ready to do but its finding inspiration to make the pages.
It was 2 am this morning and this is what I came up with, I feel sorry for Adam (my fiance) as he was at work this morning and I was using my heat tool and had music on downstairs. Bless him he doesnt complain.
First layout is a photo of my brother and Amelia and she really is the double of him. Well she cant dely being a Wright as she looks a little like me when I was a baby too. So you all should of heard the saying
"The Apple never falls far from the Tree" meaning your alot like your parents.
I came up with this 8x8 layout.
Paper is from My Minds Eye ~ Abbey Road"Round & Round" Scenery Paper. Which I cut the trees and raised them with Foam tape.
I used my Computer to print the title using A Yummy Apology font which I downloaded and added to my font folder (which is located in my Windows folder of my C: Drive) If you need help with this please drop me a message.
I typed the title in Microsft Word and ran my paper through and printed on to the scrapbooking paper.
I used my hole punch to make the apples and stuck them on with my 2way glue pen.
Rounded the corners of the photo and stuck it down.
Second page I am not so sure about.
I had some little wooden letters I got from Wallmart a few years ago but they were too cute to use, so I had opened the box as I only have the George and Basics in my cricut and i dont like that font. I coloured them with Brown ink - not sure of the brand.
My brother and sister in law took Amelia for a Professional Photo Sitting and the photos are amazing. These are just 3 of them there will be more layouts using them when I get round to it.
Picking colours from the images which I always do - I used Kraft card stock for the background and stamped in Versa Watermark a cute Vintage Baby Stamp which I got for $1!! in Michaels Bargin Bin when I was there in November this year. We have already booked up to go back in October 2010 I cant wait!!
I used a strip of Butter Cream Linen textured card stock from The PaperMill Shop and matted this on the some plain brown card stock which I used my Friskars Tredding Water punch on the bottom.
The tag is made using another vintage baby stamp (Also from Michaels $1) It says Official Baby Business I used the same brown ink as the title and cut this into a circle and used i think its twill?? Not sure its what the tags are on attached to new jeans.
Added the photos and used a white Faux Strich all around the page and the title.
Hope you like it.
Buster (my beagle) is huffing and puffing, wanting to go for a walk and I have to get the Chicken in the oven for tea so I better go.
- Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 33 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.
