First Impressions

Here is another layout from my son's album.  These were taken in the hospital when everyone came to meet him.  He was so tiny and so cute, and seemed so fragile (he was just over 6lbs).   I combined some old and new in this layout, there are some older MME papers mixed with some new Simple Stories Oh Snap Baby cards.  I love combining some old and new stuff since I feel justified in getting both.



Supplies used:  Twine,  Simple Stories Oh Snap Baby Cards, MME Paper, Spellbinders Creative page tabs

What's up Doc?

Just getting caught up with some projects that I haven't posted, I am starting to finish my son's 1st year album and I love looking at how he has grown.  I started this layout while punching some hexagons from scraps at the time I was at a crop and didn't have time to finish.  When I got home it sat in a pile till I found it again and decided to finish it.  I love use of hidden journaling pockets at this one is no different.  This is the doctor who delivered both of my children, he was such a great doctor I remembered being so happy that I got him as my OBGYN.  I loved using the hexagons that I had to scour and find a die set for more sizes and I am happy to say I did.  They are so much fun to work with.


It's hard to see in the photo but I popped up some of them for a bit of added dimension

Checking in from Summer

WOW I can't believe its been almost a month since I posted.  I have a backlog of projects to post but we have been busy this summer at the trailer we just got and I have no internet access there.  To top it off we have been transforming the add a room so that I can scrapbook in it.  Happy to say that got finished last weekend so this weekend I can relax and work on some stuff (even if I just edit photos to post when I get back).

My downstairs craft area was an absolute disaster from the kids latest projects so I decided after cleaning and putting stuff away a sketch would be a great place to start.  Here is the sketch



and here is my take on it

I love Big Books and I can not lie

I just love this stamp from Unity, I bought it specifically for the end of year teacher gifts.  My daughter helped make the cards as well and I had to explain the joke to her.  Not sure my husband apprciated me teaching "the song" to my seven year old daughter.  Finally got the mini albums done and these went with them.  I will post a picture and video of the albums later but for now I need to get ready for a nice long weekend.
