Here's a little layout I did for my friend Jennie (holy crap! she's having twins...) This layout is for Connor. :0) It's got a spot for a 4x4 and a 4x6 photo. It will hold a couple more 4x4's or a combination of 4x6's and 4x4's.

The cardstock is Bazzill, the patterned papers are My Mind's Eye - Tres Jolie - Baby Boy. The chipboard #2 is Rusty Pickle, the other letters are from all over... Heidi Swapp, Making Memories, We R Memory Keepers... (I LOVE having them all separated by letter in different drawers! See my March blog to see a photo of my storage system for my CB letters...) The safety pins are Phrase Cafe by EK Success. The ribbons are from all over as well - and the colors match a lot better in person than they do photographed. The ink is Versa Color - Brown, and the sewing machine (straight and zig zag along the patterned papers and around mats) is my Singer.

My favorite part about the whole thing is - I only have a 2X3 1/2 inch scrap of the dot paper left! All the rest was used in the layout or tiny pieces left after cutting out the CB letters! Scraps drive me crazy... I'm forever trying to store them in a logical way and never going back to them. I always want to use something new... sometimes I check my scraps for making a quick card - but I usually want something new for that too. Anybody have a scrap solution???
This is the one for her girl baby, Chloe.


  1. I love the LOs. Your "friend" will love them. I am trying to make cards with my scraps right away. I did this with my family reunion scraps. I made cards and then put them in the craft auction at the reunion.

  2. They are wonderful layouts, Sara - cool addition to Jennie's album! I have a hard time with my scraps, too, I don't want to keep them either, I'm going to start making cards, I think. I have an idea of what you can do with the small leftover scraps, but you need to call me to find out!


  3. Very nice!

    Oh, Sharie...inquiring (nosey) minds would like to know about the scraps, too. : )

  4. Those are awesome Sara. I wish I had gotten to participate in the album!


Thanks for stopping by. It warms my heart that you would take the time to comment. Well... If you said something nice it warms my heart...
