First Shoes Layout

With my new teaching job its a wonder that I managed to find some time to scrap this week but I really had the itch to get some crafty time in the other day. I finished up my One Little Word prompt and created this adorable layout of the baby when we got him his first pair of shoes. I had some Close To My Heart paper that I have been hoarding because it is now retired. I absolutely love the wood grain look and this particular paper pack had come with a pretty teal cardstock which I thought was perfect for a little boy.

I planned my layout out in Design Space and you can grab the layout here. I planned it in Design Space because I knew that I wanted to make the title with my Cricut but then I saw the adorable baby shoes with the First Years cartridge and I thought they were perfect so I added them to my layout!

This is what the layout looks like in Design Space I know it doesn’t look like much but once the layout is created with paper it is whole other story. The blue boxes are just place holders and were never cut out but I needed them their so I could figure out how big I could go with my title. My photos were 3.5×4.5 and that is the sizes of the boxes so if you choose to use them as mats for your photos you will know what size you need them to be.

Here is my layout, photos and paper really do make everything look better! I don’t put a lot of embellishments on my boy layouts so this is what I came up with of course you could always add more to it.

Look how cute those little shoes are and of course I made them white because the shoes we bought him are white. Now don’t forget their own two days left to grab the Year Noted paper kit for only $5. You can grab the kit in my shop by clicking HERE.

Birthday’s Galore

UMMMMMMM how did this happen? It seems that all I do in January right after Christmas is celebrate birthdays. The first half of January is literally all about recovering from Christmas and celebrating birthdays.

The first birthday is my daughter’s on January 11th, the next birthday is the baby’s on January 12th (and yes you read that right, the very next day is the baby’s birthday) and then its my birthday on January 14th. Oh and lets not forget that I have a niece and a mother in law that celebrate on January 8th and January 17th. All I can do is pray that I make it through.

With all that being said the Confetti Wishes line is perfect for scrapbooking all these birthdays! I put my Canon Selphy to work and printed out some photos so that I could scrap some of the birthday festivities of my daughter and son. I prepped my layouts ahead of time which really made it easy to pop the photos on to my layouts so that I could share them with you. If you have a Selphy and are in need of some printing tips you can check out my top 5 tips for printing with your Selphy by clicking here.

Here is what I came up with for my daughter’s birthday layout. I scrap the children’s birthday’s seperately as they each have their own albums that I put their birthdays and their events in plus I have our family albums. How do you handle different events for your children?

My son’s layout I used the same paper kit but but it came out completely different. I have a much easier time scrapping girls because I can get all girly with the layouts.

January is almost over and so is the awesome special of the Year Noted Paper kit that you can grab for only $5 dollars this month in my shop. You can see the paper pack by clicking HERE and when I say this paper and exclusive stamp set is awesome I truly mean that it is awesome.
