Upscale Instant Scrapbook for Kara's Baby Girl

(Page 2 and 3 of 20)

I love a good 2 page layout! This base design was designed by Embellish It! During the class we put together the left hand page. I then bought the kit for the right hand page at the vendor show. I learned how to extend design elements so that the two pages look seamless even though there actually is a break between the pages. This type of layering, flowering making and design esthetic are now a part of my repetoire. It was a fast-paced fun class. I highly recommend Creating Keepsakes conferences.

I never create layouts without a purpose. So all the layouts from the classes I attended sat in my cabinet for months. Then, the opportunity to create a gift album for my friend Kara came about. She was a mom who wasn't as in to the pink baby girl themes. This type of sophisticated layout was just what the doctor ordered! So I added several embellishments, including the pregnant lady on the right, to create the 9 months layout. The pregnant lady, cut from Cricut Cartridge Everyday Pop Up, has followed Kara through her pregnancy. I used her on the congrats your preggers card, her blessingway invite and now in her instant scrapbook. These pages will highlight the 3 trimesters of pregnancy to show how the mom grew over the months. An opaque pen could be used to journal in untraditional places. This layout was perfectly received.

Stay tuned...
