First Scrapbook Layout

Pin It I finally finished my wedding scrapbook, so now I'm ready to start one for my daughter (coming February 2010)! So I'm gathering together things to make my first layout. I bought some pink and blue ribbon at Michael's for $1 each and used my sticker maker to make them sticky. I decided to use purple background paper I had left over from my wedding scrapbook materials as a background.

Next, I gathered together some scrap paper in two shades of pink and two shades of blue to try to match the ribbons.

Then I used the scrap paper (and a piece of origami paper) to cut out letters and flowers using the cricut and the George & Basic Shapes cartridge.
I dug out some other supplies I had that might go well. I already had some blue and purple sequins, purple ribbon, and blue and purple stickles. I had also found some cute little pregnancy stamps and four punches (swirl, flower, hand, foot) at Michaels' for $1 each, and some purple heart shaped brads, letter stamps, and pink hearts at JoAnn's for $1 each. (Can you tell I love the dollar bins?) Finally I found some old embroidery floss in matching colors and a glue pen.
I don't want to glue down my ultrasound pictures, so I decided that I would put them on mats and use ribbon in the corners to hold down the pictures. We'll see if this works. Unfortunately, I don't have enough scrap paper for matting, and I don't want them matted in white, so I might try to make my own colored paper.


  1. If your sonogram pictures are printed on thermal paper, they will fade. Copy them to preserve them. I did that with mine and they are still goo almost 11 years later.

  2. Ooh! Thanks for the tip! I'll definitely do that!
