My Sweet Baby Boy

Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. It's Heather again, and my kids will be going back to school tomorrow. They've really enjoyed their week off and so have I, but I'm dreaming of some scrappy time. I've been focusing on hanging out my kids, so I only made one layout this week. This is the page that I created. 

I've been using my Cricut more lately because I found dust on it a while back. Realizing how little I'd used it and how much I paid for it was definitely a shock! As a result, I've been specifically looking for opportunities to use die cuts on my pages. When I saw this photo of Brandon, I knew I wanted to cut a tree out of the wood grain paper that came in the Great Adventures kit

Here is a closer look at the title work. I used the tiny alphabet from the Great Adventures add on to make the title longer and more visually appealing. I layered two flowers underneath the title and I added a brad to anchor it all together.

This month's stamp add on really inspired me. I haven't stamped this much in years. I really enjoy stamping on cardstock and cutting the stamped image out so I can use it to embellish my pages. That's what I did with the beautiful text filled star stamp. 

I'm off to enjoy the last day of Easter break. Rumor has it that there will be a sprinkler involved! I hope you all have a wonderfully scrappy day.


  1. Great idea to cut a tree out of the wood grain pp!

  2. Great idea to use the wood grain for the tree! Lots of nice stuff about this layout!
    (I'm waiting for my siloutte to arrive, so I'm going to keep the wood grain in mind!)

  3. You'll love your silhouette! I can't wait to see what you make with it. Thanks for the compliment.

  4. Gorgeous layout! I really love your scrap style -- beautiful projects!
