Hey all! I'm so excited to share this with you... as you know i'm usually a card maker who dabbles once in a while with other mediums - but mostly i make cards...
Well, with Baby Tiddlywinks due date less than a month away - i was keen to start a baby journal to mark all the key moments in his little life. So when my friend Stephanie Emma (AKA craftyboots) suggested a Smash* Book i thought why not!
There is a specifically themed baby journal - so that seemed to be the most obvious choice:
Smash* Journals come with lovely backing pages and a pen with a glue stick on the end!!
Now as you know i totally utterly adore Stampin' Up! so intend to completely utalise my Stampin' Up! stash in this journal!!
I was a bit nervous getting started (as i'm not a natural scrapbooker) but here is my first page....
A simple page... I printed off the lyrics from Ed Sheerans 'small bump' onto 'Whisper White' cardstock (fab card for printing!) and cut it out... I printed a pic of me (24 weeks pregnant) and hubby and glued it onto the centre of the page. I then used my 'Big Shot' to cut out the letters to create' small bump' using the 'Timeless Type Alphabet Dies' from 'Melon Mambo' card and glued them into place. Finally i wrote 'bump at 24 weeks' using my 'uni ball signo pen' (page 113 of catty)
I'm hoping i can keep this going to keep a record of my little mans life and hope i have showcased how you can use cardmaking products in a different way!! I will update regularly with different smash* pages.
