Paper Crafting Projects


Another scrapbook layout

I really enjoyed making the last layout with the picture of Jordan and baby Noah, so I decided to do a layout for my other two daughters with their newborn baby.  This layout has a picture of my oldest daughter Ashley with baby Reece.  Reece is a year old now and Ashley just gave us the good news that Reece will be a big sister to a new brother or sister in July!

I made two of the large blue flowers using Spellbinders Rose Creations.  The other large blue one  in the bottom right corner was hand cut and then distressed.  The bird cutout  is from the Kaiser Craft “Sweet Nothings” collection.  I’m really enjoying their products and will be starting on some of their wood projects soon.  A resin window just fit under a LeBlanche stamp.  LeBlanche’s are so detailed and beautiful.  I did some sewing machine stitching, distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz distressing tool, and added a few soft feathers to add to the old vintage feel.


Here are some closer images:








I don’t do many layouts, but decided to do one for this beautiful picture of my daughter Jordan and Noah’s feet as a newborn.  Since the Pion Design paper has a coordinating back side, I created the vintage torn opening at the top with lacing to highlight the gingham back print.  The wood Kaiser Craft gate was painted with ivory craft paint.  To frame the layout, I stitched around the paper and then added a lace border.  Here are some close-ups:
