This past weekend I had yet another busy weekend with the first day of school starting on Monday. The big monster has gone to 8th grade. This will be his last year in middle school which is somewhat hard for me to comprehend. The little monster has made it to pre-kindergarten which I can still handle and be ok with! It’s the big monster that has me feeling all nostalgic and sappy. Enough about me, this post is supposed to be how to create cute baby boy layouts to give away. I created two layouts to be given away to a mother to be this weekend and they didn’t take me much time at all! I will admit that I didn’t get the best pictures of these layouts as I scrapped late at night and of course woke up late the next morning so I wasn’t able to get amazing photos of these layouts. I am going to attach them though so you can see how quick and easy you can make a scrapbook page for someone else.
The first layout is created by using a 12×12 piece of cardstock as my base, I then cut a decorative page into a 10×10 square and adhered it to my cardstock. I adhered a vellum piece with welcome baby to the top of the page for the title. Then I adhered two photo mats that are slightly larger than a 4×6 picture. Lastly I adhered three strips of different colored paper ribbon to the bottom of the page.
The second layout is created by using a 12×12 piece of cardstock as my base, I then used the Creative Memories Jumbo Fancy Frameto cut out a frame and adhered to the cardstock. I then added the baby’s name in chipboard which is from K & Company to the top of the page. I then punched out squares and added them to the middle of the layout to break up some of blue color. Next I added a journal box to the bottom left of the page and an epoxy sticker to the bottom right of the picture. I added some paper ribbon on the bottom just to tie everything in.
Of course I couldn’t send these layouts to the baby shower without a card so I made one of those too. The card was made by taking a piece of 12×12 cardstock and cutting it in half. I then take one half and score it down the middle so that I can make a 6×6 card. I like making 6×6 cards because they give me more space to decorate :). I then added a decorative paper to the middle of the card and then another smaller piece of decorative paper to the front. I added a vellum baby saying to the right of the card and I called myself done.
The two layouts and the card took me about an hour to complete maybe a little more. All in all it was a quick and easy way to create something for a baby shower and introduce them to the world of scrapbooking :). What do you think of my quick and easy layouts?
