Swaddle your blissful baby beginnings with this two-page newborn scrapbook spread. (It’s pretty aww-dorable!)

To create this layout you will need:

Check out the whole Lullaby Lane collection in the video below!

Step 1: Choose two sheets of tan muslin blanket designer paper for the bases of this two-page layout.

Step 2: Cut a 1-1/2″ x 12″ strip of night sky boy designer paper and adhere it to the left side of the left-hand page. Cut a 4-5/16″ x 12″ strip of “You are so loved” boy designer paper and adhere it next to the night sky strip on the left-hand page. Adhere a safety pins border sticker along the seam.

Step 3: Cut a 5-5/16″ x 12″ strip of night sky boy designer paper and adhere it to the right side of the right-hand page.

Step 4: Cut ten 2″ x 2″ pieces of various pink, blue and green papers. Stack two to three pieces at a time on the 13×13 Custom Cutting System Mat. Lay the outside of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern just over one edge. Using the Red Blade, cut a swell shape from the side of the square. Rotate to each side and repeat. Adhere the squares as shown on the “You are so loved” strip on the left-hand page. Trim as needed.

Step 5: Cut two 6″ x 11-1/4″ pieces of blue hearts boy paper. Adhere to each side of the layout as shown. Crop photos and/or mats as follows: (4) 2-13/16″ x 3-1/2″, (2) 6″ x 3-3/4″ and (2) 5-3/4″ x 3-3/4″. Adhere as shown to the blue hearts paper.

Step 6: Crop a variety mat to measure 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″, as well as a piece of “You are so loved” boy designer paper. Crop a photo to 4″ x 5-1/4″. Mount all on the right side of the right-hand page.

Step 7: Using the inside edge of the medium Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Green Blade, cut two circles with blue muslin blanket boy designer paper. Mount two embellishments on top and adhere to the layout as shown. Add additional stickers and embellishments, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Step 8: Journal as desired.

  1. I LOVE this method for making the shaped 2” embellishments out of the printed paper. Best of all, it utilizes tools many of us have, and can of course be used with any papers for any layout! Thanks, Krislyn, for sharing another useful scrapbooking method with us.
