Hello everyone! And welcome back to another edition of "Scrapping the Little Things" with My Creative Time. For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we focus on creating Project Life or Smash Book layouts, or any other simple layout.
Ok, I have to admit that my layout today is not really that 'simple', but I made this as a gift for my husband's niece who is getting ready to have her first baby. And growing up with a mother as a photographer, I always like to remember the importance of the photographs and the memories they hold. So this is a layout highlighting 4 generations of women in my husband's family.
Absolutely everything on this layout is made with My Creative Time products ~ WOOT! WOOT! The pink cardstock in the background is from Bazzill. The black and the white cardstock are from Recollections. All of the other pink patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Sugar & Spice collection.
The "it's a girl" title is made with the MCT ~ Lowercase Fun Dies. I added a couple of little black gems to dot the 'i's and also did a little pen work with a black ~ Zig Writer pen. The two beautiful hearts are cut with the MCT ~ Stitched Scallop Heart Die. I used a couple of different sizes of pop dots under the two hearts for dimension. I left out the center heart so they can add photos in there. The beautiful bow is made with Celebrate It ~ Sheer Creations ribbon.
The "introducing to you for the 1st time..." sentiment is from the MCT ~ All Star Baby stamp set. The "daughter" and the label it's stamped on are from the MCT ~ Just Simply Live stamp set. I used some pop dots under the label for dimension. All of the little hearts there at the bottom are actually the center hearts cut from using the MCT ~ Stitched Scallop Heart Die. The "name", "date", "time", "weight", and "inches" are all from the MCT ~ All Star Baby stamp set.
Three of the four generations. I can't wait to see the whole layout with the fourth generation photo added. Takes my breath away.
The frame around each photo is cut with the polaroid die in the MCT ~ Just Simply Live stamp set.
I used the alphabet stamps in the MCT ~ Just Simply Live stamp set to identify each photo. The labels are cut with the label die in the same stamp set. I used pop dots under each label for dimension.
All of the flowers were created using the MCT ~ Flower Petal Dies. I curled up each petal. And also added a black gem to the center of each flower.
If you look closely, you can see that I used the smallest flower and the smallest gem for the first photo, then two flowers with a larger gem for the second photo and finally all three flowers with the largest gem for the third photo. I thought that would really emphasize the generations a little.
Well my creative friends, that's it for me today. I plan to get a 12x12 scrapbook photo frame before I give it away. I just LOVE how it turned out...so soft and pretty. :)
Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created. I will see you all again soon. Have a great day!
