Started a new job last year and seem to have even less time for scrapping. Husband purchased a new tool for me. Love it. Check back to see my Easter cards.

Two Long Years

Wow! It has been a long time since I've been on here.

Moved out of state and hadn't been scrapping for a long time. I am back now. I will post pictures soon.

1st Year Layouts: November: 1st Haircut

This is one of my favorite layouts. We waited until my son was a year old to cut his hair. The left layout is the "Before" and the right layout is the "After." Of course, I included some hair in the layout. How could I not?

For this layout, I used my cricut for the title and for the frames. I used a pan as an outline for the large circle and cut it by hand. I have included some close-up pictures, so you can see the details.

1st Year Layouts: October

I kept the layout for this month very simple. I did not even journal. I used stickers on the first page that say "Hay Ride" and stickers that say "Halloween" and "all dressed up" on the second page.

the october paper has greens, red, and oranges, so I accented the page with the green. I thought it was a nice contrast to the normal orange and black that a lot of people use on October pages. The only cricut cartridge used for this page was Storybook. I used it for the brackets around "11 Months Old."

1st Year Layouts: September

I found some great Halloween paper that had this plaid on the back for September. I used some coordinating Halloween paper for the trim around the September paper. I used Cursive 101 cartridge for "10 Months Old" and Walk In My Garden for the flowers. I stamped some orange flowers in the plaid to keep the flowers going.

I know, I know, I used flowers. I think they work and they are not girly. My oldest said he liked this layout. So, I guess they work without making my youngest son's pages too girly. For the corner flowers, I used the cuts from the cricut and placed them on circles that I edged with the same orange ink that I used to stamp the flowers in the plaid background. 

1st Year Layouts: August

For August, I used fall colors that matched the August paper.I had some great orange trim for the page, but had to make my own for the polka dot paper. I used ink and glitter to make the trim. I used the cricut Print 101 cartridge for the title.

1st Year Layouts: July

Here is the first page of my son's July layout. I used the month paper and decided to stay away from too much 4th of July themed embellishments. Instead, I used beige and burgundy with some blue dotted paper. I love my son in this picture and thought the color scheme worked well with his shirt.

The other side of the layout focused on a visitor we had in the month of July. My son happened to be wearing the same shirt when she came to visit, so it worked out well for the layout.  I used the cricut to cut the age of my son and the stars. I always journal by hand. I like the personal touch it gives my pages.
