Babies First Year Album

There is nothing more precious and magical then your babies first year. They are so cute and squishy at the beginning and by the end of that year they are walking and say a few words and have developed into little… humans! It is crazy AND it all goes by in a blink of an eye! Seriously- a blink! That is why you need to document those memories- preserve them or you will regret it – and those cute, squishy babies will make you regret it! I promise you. Don’t believe me. Then ask my youngest sister who STILL TO THIS DAY brings up her lack of a baby album to my poor mother.

So, to prevent this future calamity you have to sign up for my ‘Babies First Year’ album workshop. This is the only thing that will save you. No joke!

In this workshop you will create 12 single layouts. Each page will document a month in your sweet babies first year. Add a few photos, write a cute story about that time they peed in Daddy’s mouth…. you know the drill.

(And if you are wondering, yes, my son did that.)

Here are some photos that show the BLUE Version of this workshop. There is also a PINK version and I encourage you to pick the one that best works for you.

My nephew will luck out and get this for Christmas. He is the youngest and I never did a full album for his older brother’s SO I am actually setting him up to have the BETTER book – ha!

Key 6: Flower Market Cricut Cartridge

Have you seen our newest circut cartridge? Flower Market is so much more than flowers (but the flowers are pretty amazing!). I will be sharing few videos a month that show just what you can do with this cartridge. Hang on to your hats ladies as this is going to be a very fun ride!

This video features Key 6 (I cannot believe how much you can create with just one key!)- watch how you can pull together a very feminine look for a layout. Perfect for a little girl page.

Why I love making cards.

I know not everyone gets it. Especially if you devoted to another form of paper crafting- not everyone mixes them up. When I first started scrapbooking I saw little point to cards but now I LOVE making cards!

So, why the change?

I think it came out of a few different reasons but I am hoping one of these speaks to you. Try them- I bet you love them just as much as I do.

1. I can complete a card in much less time. With a full time job, a business and a busy family. This often fits my schedule better. I know I will complete something that feels great and get it fully done. I love my scrapbooking but if a layout sits half finished I often struggle to find the mojo to complete later on.

2. I can use them. Cards have an immediate use in all aspects of my life. I have a stack at work, some at home and some even ready to go in my purse. I am always ready to give a special little handmade card to someone and never miss a beat.

3. They mean a lot more. Cards have meaning- to some people more than others but there is meaning there. There is even more meaning behind a handmade card. Not only did the card giver remember an occasion but they also took the time to craft something unique for you. A little gift and a card in one.

4. They can be cheaper than those in stores. Obviously, they will never compete with dollar store cards (ugh- why purchase these??!! ) but you can make a handmade card for very little cost. My two watercolour cards are a good example of little product but they still look nice. If you scrapbook, cards can be an economical way of using us your leftover supplies.

5. Darn it all I just feel artistic. I can try different things, let my imagination soar and take risks. On a small project the risks do not seem as serious. If something doesn’t turn out it can be fixed much easier.
