Baby Layout: January 2008

For this layout, I started with a K & Co dotted paper in pink. I wanted something simple so I could add lots of stuff!
Next, I made the trees using a Fiskars cutting template and light green cardstock. Then I used Ranger's green distress ink in green, embossed the trees with Cuttlebug's "Branches" folder an finally I sanded the surface a bit.
The snowman was made with three circles that I cut with my nesties on white cardstock, used Ranger's blue distress ink to make the shadows and empasize the shapes. I cut the little hat by hand, stamped some snowflakes in light grey and then used the same blue distress ink for the edges. I also cut a pop dot in tiny parts to make the buttons and the nose and colored them with markers. Finally, the scarf is an American Crafts ribbon, I used my blue Copic to mute down the colors, but, I couldn't adhere it on the snowman! I used glue, herma, nothing, the only thing that finally kept it in place is a couple of pop dots. So if you know any adhesive that holds ribbon in place, please enlighten me! :-)
Once I put the trees, the snowman and the photos in place, the image of a seesaw was created in my mind! So I cut pieces out of pink cardstock, used pink distress ink to make them seem less flat, and it was ready.
The letters are American Crafts "Giggle" white thickers, I used some light blue distress ink in the right side of each letter.
At this point, I needed something to put in the upper corners of the layout, so I used a Fiskars stamp set on white paper, colored them, cut them and then, for the embellishment in the upper left I used some stickles, while fot the little one on the upper right, I used UTEE, the result is really nice, lots of shine!
Finally I used some festive rubbons, actually that's the only set of rubbons I have (not a rubbons girl!).

I really liked the final result, BUT, next time I want to make a fastive layout I 'll make sure I have some festive papers first, it makes the project so much easier!


  1. Fabulous work and very inventive with creating the festive elements! Have you heard about the Crop that will be happening on the 28th of November? :)

  2. Eleni thanks for your comments! As for the crop, I'm waiting for more details, but I'm almost positive that I'll join! And hopefully more cros will follow :-)
