Baby Girl

My sweet little girl will be turning 4 months old in just a matter of days.  Time certainly flies by with the third one!  Somehow, despite the chaos of everyday life, I've managed to make quite a bit of progress in her scrapbook, thus far.  It certainly helps to have design team assignments and fun new products at my fingertips, to encourage me to stay up until the wee hours of the morning and scrapbook!

Shortly after this little bundle was born, I was thrilled to find the opportunity to eek out some time to make up a simple birth announcement for her.  I saved one to include in her scrapbook (of course!) and thought it would be fun to pair that with some of the photos I took of her, as I attempted to capture the 'perfect shot' for her announcement.  I used We R Memory Keepers newest release, Baby Mine.

Supplies used: Paper: We R Memory Keepers Baby Mine collection: Sweetie Pie, Sugar & Spice, Baby Pink Cardstock: We R Memory Keepers Baby Mine Light Pink and Baby Mine Pink, Bazzill White Embellishments: We R Memory Keepers Girl Crochet Doily Frame, and It's a Girl diecut tag, Crate Paper 'Random' buttons, My Mind's Eye Lost & Found buttons, Doodlebug Boutique buttons and brad Other: machine stitching, computer font, photo corners, alpha rubons, ribbon

Here's a closer look at the first of the two pages, that features the actual announcement.  The stork image is from the Lawn Fawn 'Plus One' stamp set and baker's twine is Doodlebug.

That sweet little pink crocheted frame is part of the Baby Mine collection.  I thought it perfectly highlighted those cute little baby feet that I cut from one of the patterned papers.

This page shows some of the sweet 'outtakes' from our little photo shoot.

And some of the details:

As I've done with my boys, I'm hoping to do a monthly review page for the first twelve months of baby girl's life.  I had the opportunity to use Pebbles Country Picnic collection.  As soon as I saw the colorful floral paper from this line, I immediately thought of the large picture of Emerson smiling and how well the colors in her shirt coordinated with this paper.  So, it seemed an obvious choice to use this picture as the focal shot, and some others highlighting her second month of life.

Supplies used: Paper: Pebbles Country Picnic collection: Secret Garden, Vineyard, Patio Cardstock: Bazzill Stickers: Pebbles Country Picnic collection dimensional stickersEmbellishments: Prima flowers – Gillian Cider Other: Tsukineko sparkle shimmer spritz (on vellum circle), computer font, machine stitching, embroidery floss, ribbon, scallop border punch, butterfly punch, photo corners, chipboard number (title), vellum, Technique Tuesday stamp, black embossing powder

 Here's a closer look at the picture that inspired this page:

I used one of my favorite Martha Stewart punches for the sweet little green butterflies that accompany the dimensional stickers from this collection.  In addition, I love the detail and texture that prima flower adds to the center of the ribbon bow.

And page two:

It's hard to tell from this photo, but I spritzed the title circle with shimmer spritz for added interest and 'girliness'.  The journaling runs along the right vertical edge of the second page.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I've been papercrafting quite a bit, so I'll be back soon with more fun projects to share!


  1. Gosh Jackie, I love Emersons pages. You have been busy, go girl! I love the bows and details and all the fun pink papers. 11 pics on the month 2 layout, gotta love that. I have also been quite the scrapping one. Just about have my HH pics caught up! You need to come over and hang out soon so we can craft. (or we can always take a shopping excursion)

    1. Patti -- can't wait to check out your HH pages. I still need to see all the pages you scrapped on your weekend away, too! Hope we can get together soon!

  2. I saw this over in the 2Peas Gallery and wanted to stop by for a closer look! Such adorable pages(and adorable baby girl too)!
