First Christmas

Written by Stef on . Posted in Scrapbook Layouts

Stationery Noted First Chrismas

During last year a very special couple became parents to an even more special baby boy.

This layout is a picture of him on his first Christmas.

I have created this layout using Teresa Collins Stationery Noted paper collection and their coordinating embellishments. Even though this is not a christmas range of paper it is very suitable for a wide range of subjects to scrap and it matched his Father Cristmas outfit perfectly. 

There are plenty of embellishments to go with this collection and the papers have a variety of elements to so you can easily create  beautiful projects.

Thanks for stopping by


24/7 Double Page Pocket Layout

Divided Page Protector Scrapbook Page Using Simple Stories 24/7

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a double page pocket layout using the 24/7 papers by Simple Stories.  Pocket scrapbooking or scrapbooking in divided page protectors is really popular and is a great way to get your photos and stories recorded in a relatively short amount of time.  I am finding this is an excellent way for me to make sure I have the memories that I want to remember all in the same place and is another way of 'backing up my photos' (so if something happened that meant I lost our digital images I would at least have a copy of my favourite photos).  Don't get me wrong I back up our photos on an external drive too.  It is also great for when I want to create a 12x12 layout or even a double page layout that expands on the stories that I have quickly recorded.  I am also finding I can do a bit at a time and I can do this type of scrapbooking when I am tired and not feeling very creative.  My kids are loving looking at the album and laughing at the funny things they say that I have written down and looking at the things we have done.

Scrapbook Layout with background created with Dylusions and Paint Dabber

Hi everyone,

I made this scrapbook layout about my youngest boy licking the bowl after we have made a cake.  I am pretty sure most of us who have children have some photos like this!  Who doesn't like to lick the bowl ?  To follow on with the theme of my photos I created a background page that was messy looking.  

Have you still got lots of Christmas Photos to scrapbook?

Handmade Holiday Layout

Hi everyone,

I am back today to share how I am dealing with all my Christmas photos.  There are lots of different manufacturers now developing products for scrapbooking in divided page protectors.  I think of this type of scrapbooking as making 'pocket pages' although that is probably not a term that other people would recognise as it is just how I think of it.  I have lots of great photos from Christmas Day that I want to be able to look at but don't really want to spend the first few months of the year scrapbooking about Christmas!

Double Page Scrapbook Layout using Echo Parker Sticker Accents - Boys

Hi everyone,

I am starting to see the sneak peaks of the products that will be released at CHA this year - there are some beautiful collections and some great new products too!

Today on the blog I am sharing a double page scrapbook layout featuring my boys.  I printed my photos in black and white since they had really bright colours - the blanket was bright red!  The black and white tones really well with the colours in the stickers I wanted to use.
