Commissioned Baby Boy Scrapbook part 2

Ok, so here is the rest of the album I was working on.

1 & 2 Month

3 & 4 Month

5 & 6 Month

7 & 8 Month

9 & 10 Month.  There always has to be that one that loads sideways. 

11 Month & My Firsts

Some details of the My Firsts page.  This arrow was painted with pearl paint from CTMH. 

A place to list those important firsts!!! 

Ugh, another sideways load.  Anyway, this is the 1st Birthday page.  I used Later Sk8ter paper from CTMH.  The fist picture is a close up of the sparkly 1, and some detail in the upper left.  The words came off of a zip strip on this paper.   

Family Tree page.  I used my cricut and CTMH's AP cart for this. 

Last page.  Wild Thing...I Think I Love You.

The final touch!!  Having the cover professionally engraved!!  The album is a navy blue, and the engraving is black.  Not the greatest picture, I took it with my phone right before I gave it to my customer. 

So that's it!!  My customer was so thrilled and can't wait to give it to her daughter.  I really hope they all treasure this for a long time!

Thanks for looking!!  ☺

Mish Mash

Today I have a few things to show you, and instead of doing individual posts, I thought it would be easier to combine them all!! 

First up is the little goodie bag I made for my hubby for father's day.  I used Victory (retired) paper from CTMH and my cricut. 

Next is a graduation card I made for my nephew.  I used Later Sk8ter and glitter paper from CTMH.  The stamps I used are Cricut Artiste Collection Kudos (sentiment and tiny grad cap) and Perfect Fit-Frames Flair. 


 Last is the birthday card I made for my hubby.  I punched out all the squares with 1 1/4" square.  The banner is cut with my cricut and stamped with a coordinating stamp in black. 

Thanks for looking!!  ☺

Thank You Cards

I made some Thank You cards so that my daughter could give them to her teachers and bus driver, and just wanted to share them with you!  I used sketches from the CTMH Wishes book for all of them. 

They are all 5x7.  This one uses Stampin' Up paper.  I also made the flower using the Word Window punch and a brad.

I used Stampin' Up paper for this card, and heat embossed the sentiment in pink. 

I used CTMH Dream Pop paper and heat embossed the sentiment in silver.  The flower is cut out and I used foam tape to adhere it.

Stampin' Up paper and heat embossed the sentiment in pink.  The flower was in my stash. 

Thanks for looking!!  :)

Comissioned Baby Boy Scrapbook

So about a week ago, I was contacted through Facebook and asked to make a scrapbook for a soon to be grandson!!  She is even going to pay more than I quoted her!!  Yay me!!!  I have been working really hard on this, as she needs it by mid July.  I want to share with you what I have accomplished so far.  I really hope that Grandma and soon to be mommy love it!!!  :)

So this will be the first page.  It's a Boy, and Welcome Little One.  I also when back and added a tag under the star that says "hi!  My name is.......".  There is a journal tag on the bottom right for all the important birth info.

Pages 2+3.  Still stumped for a title for this one.  This is the pre-baby page. Belly pictures, sonogram, prepping the nursery.  The bottom right photo mat has a journal tag that will tuck underneath it as well.  Lots of room for pictures!! 

***Edited to add***

So with the help of some of my fellow CTMH sisters, I decided on this title:  Great Expectations
I used wood letters and misc baby stickers I had. 

Baby Shower double layout.  I used leather Thicker alphas, and misc stickers on the title. 

Delivery of baby.  I planned this whole page around the circle sticker.  I just loved what it said!! 

An embellishment I made using stickers, button, and bakers twine.

The stickers that were the whole inspiration for this layout!  :)  Sorry it's sideways!

Layout for hospital memorabilia and going home.  The diaper on the bottom left page is actually a pocket!!  I love it when I am able to think "outside the box"!!!  :)

This is a close up of the diaper pocket.  I used my cricut, and CTMH's Artiste cartridge to make this.  The pins were cut with silver glitter paper, and the leg holes are glued shut so nothing can fall out! 

You Are Loved layout.  Really wishing I had more of this paper!!  The "you are" letters are made of wood.  The blue strip is a pocket so another picture, or journaling can be added.  The area with the pink post it can be used for another picture, or journaling. 

That's it so far!!!  The next 5 layouts will be 1 Month, 2 Month, etc. 

Thanks for looking!!  :)
