Baby Shower Album Pages

I have been a busy girl today, finishing up some layouts for a baby shower gift.

Back in July, I participated in a 14/12 swap. What this means, basically, is that I completed 7 layouts for the month of July and 7 layouts for the month of April. In return, I received an entire year's worth of finished scrapbook pages.

Because our cousins' Bryan & Angie are having a boy, it required me to change a few layouts (haha, didn't think they'd want pink pages). I also made (2) 1/2 layouts for the front and back of the album. All they will have to do is slip their family photo's in place and they will have a lifetime of memories to behold.

So here they are (the one's I completed today):

Animal Cookies Creative Basics Paper (Retired)
Bohemian Alphabet Stamp Set
Zoology Stamp Set
You & Me Stamp Set
Gold Rush, Chocolate & Clover Meadow Inks
Colonial White Ric Rac
Reflections How-To-Program

Miracle Paper (Retired)
In the Month of April Stamp Set
True Happiness Stamp Set (Retired)
Journaling Jots Stamp Set (Retired)
Chocolate, Crystal Blue, Buttercup, Garden Green & Tulip Inks
Magic How-To-Program

Elemental Paper
Love Life Stamp Set
In the Month of May Stamp Set
Journaling Jots Stamp Set (Retired)
Sorbet, Creme Brulee, Lagoon & Chocolate Inks
Magic How-To-Program

Winter Wonderland Paper
Bohemian Alphabet Stamp Set
Bundled Buddies Stamp Set
Journaling Jots Stamp Set (Retired)
Snow Flurries Stamp Set
Chocolate & Grey Wool Inks
Stardust Glitz Gel
Watercolor Pencils
White Daisy Grosgrain Ribbon
Reflections How-To-Program

My favorite one is the Winter Wonderland layout. Those little characters are just so fun, and add a nice touch of whimsy. Just goes to show that if you have the right stamps, you don't need stickers.

I always love to hear your comments, so please feel free to let me know what you think. Have a wonderful weekend!


Holiday Wishes

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp sets* between November 1–30, you can add a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5!

Christmas Card Workshop

It's time for a Christmas Card Workshop!

Date: Sunday, 11/20/11
Time: 1:00 - 6:00 pm
Where: My place

Because this workshop could fill up fast, I'm asking for pre-payment and rsvp for workshop by Friday, November 11th. This will allow me to have enough materials ready ahead of time. We will have 2 stations working at the same time to keep things moving along.

Please bring beverage, micro-tip scissors, and adhesive tape runner.

We will be creating 20 cards (5 designs x 4 each) for $30.00. That's just $1.50 per card! You don't want to miss this workshop. I hope to see you there!
