Layout about my sweet niece!
Hello and good day! I am happy to show off my latest layout! It features the adorable Carta Bella Paper Baby Mine Girl collection AND includes a picture of my sweet new niece! I loved the Baby Mine collection when I first saw it and new it would be perfect for pictures of the new baby in our family. And I just know you will love Baby Mine as much as I do!
I first cut out some of the cute journaling cards and used those as the base of my design. I then printed my picture out to be about the same size as the cards. I rounded the corners to match as the cards as well. I embellished the page with a few of the chipboard stickers, which I LOVE by the way!
I used a combination of brads and chipboard pieces for most of the title and I love the way it turned out! I used my Silhoutte Cameo to cut out the 'GIRL' portion of the titled using the Benguiat Bk BT font. Notice I even used a Baby Mine brad to dot the 'I' in GIRL! I really enjoy working with this collection. I love that the color palette is mostly soft pastels with a few pops of brighter green thrown in... so cool!
This bow patterned paper (the B side of Baby Girl Dots) is my favorite paper of the collection! The bows are just perfect cute little bows in perfect little bow colors! In this photo, I want to show you how I used the pattern of the bows as a guide to trim a scalloped border. And I used the pattern of the blue paper to trim a scalloped border too!
I hope I have inspired you to scrap some of those baby pictures! Thanks for joining me and have a great day!
