Baby Cards

I feel like life seems to go in waves. Lots of graduations, or weddings, or babies all at once. Right now we are in a baby wave, so I've been making lots of baby cards. 


 Paper House has these fun little mini cards. While you can use them just as they are, I like to re-purpose them as a focal point on larger cards.

Many of them have foil or glitter accents on them (the card above has foil stars, and the "Hello Baby" card has a little bit of glitter over the whole card).

These baby mini cards pair really well with the paper and stickers from the Hello Baby collection, but would also look great with Marbellous or Colorwash.

Using one of the mini cards as a starting point makes for really fast card assembly, too. You just choose some patterned papers that match with it, and add a few stickers to give it some dimension. I find that puffy stickers are especially cute on baby cards.

What kind of cards have you been making a lot of lately?

Good Times Scrapbooking Layout

 Today I have another layout with Scrapbooking Store February kit. This Good Times scrapbooking layout is layout 2 of 4.

Whenever we visit my parents in the summer, we like to go to Charlie's Drive-In for root beer floats and cheese curds. This year we finally thought to take a photo in front of it. 


 I thought the red and black prints in this collection would work with the colors in my photos and with the drive-in theme. There's even an ice cream sticker on the sticker sheet in the collection. The black "Good Times" sticker is an extra one I had from the December kit, it just happened to work really well with this layout.

If you want more inspiration with this kit, check out my blog post from last week, and you can always find more on Scrapbooking Store's Facebook page

Good Vibes Scrapbooking Layout

It's February, which means a new kit from Scrapbooking Store. So far, I've created 4 layouts with this kit. Today I'm sharing my Good Vibes scrapbooking layout. 

This month's kit features papers and stickers from Kate and Ash by Simple Stories. While the themes found in this kit are geared towards girl (especially tween and teen) scrapbook pages, with a little bit of creativity this kit can be very versatile. 

You'll find lots of hearts and positive affirmations in this kit. With those themes, I thought it might be time to scrap the photos from my son's endoscopy a few years ago. It wasn't a great time for him, but the procedure went well and gave us some answers. I think the different heart papers and embellishments from the kit convey the feelings pretty well.

I really love the saturated colors in this kit and the pops of black throughout. I'll be back next week with another layout from this kit, and you can always find more on Scrapbooking Store's Facebook page
