This month I have a special project to share with you. This is my first layout for my son's album! My son just turned 3 months old and this is the first page that I've finished for his album. I'm doing a Project Life style album for him where I take a photo each day and journal a bit about that day (milestones, funny stories, etc). This is his Week 06, back in May. I do not scrap in order as you can see but I think it's more fun that way!


I used the gorgeous Sweet Lullaby Collection for this layout. I just love the soft colors and gorgeous, intricate dies in this collection! Of course, the stamps are simply perfect for making little embellies for his album!

Here are a few close up of the layout:

For my title/date card I die cut a white carriage and adhered it over a light blue paper and then fuzzy cut around it. I added some wooden buttons to the wheels, a Noah's Arc image inside the carriage and a 'it's a boy' ticket to the carriage. I also stamped and fuzzy cut the baby block and pop dotted the Y.


I made these embellies using by punching out a 1" circle, inking the edges with light blue ink, and adding an epoxy sticker over it. It adds a touch of homemade to my layouts!


I made a few sentiment pennants and added them to some of the photos.


I cut a tag and added it over the top right corner of the large photo. I also made another epoxy sticker and used it together with the tag.


I fuzzy cut another tag and used it in the bottom right photo of me and my son. I made yet another epoxy sticker and added to the bottom left side.

Thanks for visiting and taking your time to comment on my blog!
