Instant Scrapbook Baby Boy - Hester
This was a new idea I incorporated into my instant scrapbooks... a page about home. As we move from here to there, where a child is born doesn't always end up being where s/he grows up. So this page highlights the place of this prince's birth - Chi-town!! Pronounced Shy-town.
I used the Cricut Cart 50 states to get the shape of Illinois and used a pop-dotted star sticker to represent the capital (hopefully in the right place...eyeballed it...). I used Bazzill cardstock, echo park stickers, a Martha stewart punch scallop and dot punch, baker's twine, etc. to make this look come together.
While a picture of home could be placed to the right hand side of the page, journaling can be placed to the left just above the "home" sticker. I was truly inspired to make this page a staple in all my future instant scrapbooks.
