First Tooth Layout!

It has been forever since I have had time to just sit and scrap for myself. I have a few photos that I have picked for my layouts as most of my scrapping is done pocket style these days. Their are always those photos that require something more then just a pocket though. So here I was wanting to scrap this photo but I had no inspiration. I always have a hard time with one photo layouts as I usually have three to five photos per layout.

I went to my favorite source when I need to be inspired, Pinterest, I found this cute layout as inspiration and ran away with it quite literally as it seems that i was so excited that I even forgot to pin it. Any who this is what I came up with. You can grab the cut file for design space here.

Cricut Design Space cut file

I decided to use the Blossom paper pack from Close To My Heart for this layout. I have to admit that I think I am in love with this paper and I must have more of it.

I literally cut everything with my Cricut and put it all together. I used that little extra piece of paper that was on my B&T for the big smiles and then went through a pile of stickers that I have for photo op sticker. I did my journaling and tried to use a rub on but alas did not have much luck at all. I have completely sworn off rub ons from now on.

Here is my layout and my princess with her first lost tooth, this is always such a great milestone to go through with the kids!

Now that today is the last day of April I am running a promotion for today only. Any purchase in my Close To My Heart shop will earn you this mini calendar stamp for free. All you have to do is place an order and I will send the stamp out to you personally. Do not place the stamp in your cart as this is not a Close To My Heart promotion. Happy shopping!

Limited Edition Products

The Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog was released this month and their are some great products in this catalog. By far my favorite has been the Jackson line which is around for a limited time. I have already grabbed the Jackson paper pack, assortment, complements and picture my life kit and I must say that I am ecstatic about all of it. I have the perfect photos for some of this paper.

Jackson Picture My Life Kit


Any who I did a quick video sharing with you what all the cards look like in the Picture My Life kit which is only $8.95 for 56 cards. You get two of each of the 4×6 cards and two of each of the 3×4 cards. Some of you might not be into pocket scrapbooking but don’t forget all the things that you can do with these cards. Here is just a short list of how you can use these cards:

  • You can make a card
  • You can use a card or cards for journaling on a layout
  • You can use them as notes for your planner
  • You can use them as love notes for your family and stick them in lunch boxes as they head out for the day
  • You can layer them to create a background

These are just a few of my tips, of things that you can do with pocket scrapbooking cards. I also shared in the video the two new washi tape packs that are available for a limited time which are Carnival and Boardwalk. Each pack comes with 3 washi tapes and is only $5.95. Again their are so many different things that you can do with washi tape that makes this deal well worth it, plus the colors are gorgeous and they coordinate with the Jackson paper collection and the Blossom paper collection.

Check out the video for yourself and see how gorgeous all this stuff is and then you can place an order in my shop by clicking HERE.
