I quite like this page. This was the week we moved to our new place, and an important milestone because it’s half way through!
I quite like the layered affect on this page. It’s mostly using supplies from a pack of scrap papers I bought one time, and some leftover bits and pieces I had laying around. As you can probably tell, I like tags, and have included one in the layers, and I’ve also used numbers from the Simple Stories Baby Steps collection.
I really like this page. I like the green lace pattern above and below the photo, and I love the photoshop title. This is the second side belly shot in the album (I think!), and I’ll be putting a few more of them in now that I’m ‘showing’ a bit more!
I also like how the page next door is similar. The journalling strip is the same width as the photo, and this was just total luck. The piece for journalling is actually the packaging for some cute paper birds I bought. I just chopped off the bottom (which had the branding etc on it), and positioned it on the side so that you could see the nice cut out edges.
Also, here’s a tip- if you make a mistake in the journalling, then just take a small sticker and put it over the top. This sticker is fine by itself in this particular case, because it works in well with the flower pattern. If you were trying to cover up a mistake on a blank piece of card, then you might need to bundle it with a few other pieces.
This week we’re back to those cricut letters for the title, and keeping things pretty simple. Like with quite a few of the pages in this album I’ve tried to use up supplies where I only had a few bits left, so this is a bit of a muddle of heaps of different supplies.
There’s a quite few aspects of this week’s pages I love. For one, I love the cicrcle theme on the journalling page. The way the doily fits so well behind the journalling flower is just one of those perfect things you can’t plan. To keep with the circular theme I’ve put the journalling AROUND the doily.
I also like the stitching around the photo. Because I’m using both sides of the background paper I just sewed straight onto the photo, and then attached it with my adhesive like I normally do.
Like I say, there’s a bit of a hodge podge of supplies used in this, and that’s okay as long as you’ve got something consistent throughout the scrapbook. My conisisten areas are:
- Cosmo Cricut Odds & Ends Collection for the background papers
- Instagram photos (coupled with the full body belly shops)
- Tags and Doilies
Stay tuned in the next few months for some exciting news about a new ebook! Particuarly useful if you’re getting pregnant yourself!
