Happy Friday to all of our creator friends! Today I have a really adorable Fast2Fab™ album that I used to scrapbook my little man, and if you’re a mother of boys, you are going to LOVE this collection! The minute I saw it I wanted it all… from the beautiful 8×8 foiled album to the stickers, patches, punches and papers. This collection covers everything that little boys love! So, are you ready to see?!
For this album, I started scrapbooking Edward’s favorite memories/things for this year so far! I completed about half of the pages and still have a half left so I can add more photos as the year goes by. I think Edward will like this when he sees it. He loves looking through my albums, especially when they are about him.
To complete this 8×8 Fast2Fab™ Album, you will need:
- 8×8 Vivid Blue Super Duper Boy Fast2Fab™ Album
- Super Duper Boy Stickers
- 8×8 Super Duper Boy Tone-on-Tone Paper Pack
- Playland Mini Trio Punch Set
- Personal Trimmer
- All-Purpose Scissors
- Black Dual-Tip Pen
- Foam Squares
- Tape Runner
Before I began putting my album together, I looked through the stickers and pre-designed pages to decide on which photos I would use. Then, I printed my photos. For some of the photos, I decide to change them to black and white so they would go with the pages and not clash.
Seriously, I love this spread with the inked background because I did not have to get messy to create it! All I had to do is add a few photos, stickers and journaling and I was done!
I love that the stickers are just the right size, including the borders. There’s no cutting needed; simply peel the stickers and adhere them. Super easy! Now, if you want to get creative, you can cut them down to spread them out throughout your mini, but not every page needs to be embellished. Sometimes, a little journaling goes a long way.
I used the Playland Mini Trio Punch to punch a dinosaur shape to use a photo corner for a school project of Edward’s. (I remember the day Edward brought his assignment home. I love his story and how he is good at drawing, so I scanned it to use for a future layout/project!)
While I was creating my pages I decided to get creative and make my own star stickers. I used the naked pieces from the sticker sheet and paired it with patterned paper to create some embellishments for this spread!
I cut the 8×8 orange designer paper down to create another mat in teal to bring out the dinosaur. Then, I added the stickers and embellishments. I tore an 8×8 piece of the orange and white polka dot paper and adhered it to the bottom of the birthday cake spread to add some more orange. I used a Foam Square and the punch to create a fun embellishment for the “Don’t Grow Up” spread.
I cut the cover sheet from the Paper Pack to use as a fun mat for this spread. Then, I punched a few shapes and mounted them to the bottom half of the layout. (I have a hard time throwing away scraps, so I try to use what I can!)
And here is what the cover looks like… cute, right?!!
So, are you ready to scrapbook your little man using this fabulous boy collection? This album will only take you about 30 minutes to complete. The longest part for me was deciding on the photos and getting them printed! And the journaling… Creative Memories did the rest of the work with the pre-designed pages and stickers.
I hope this album inspired you to share more stories of your little boys! Comment below and tell us your favorite part of this Super Duper collection!
