The first year of a baby’s life is epic! Every month brings brand new milestones to capture, celebrate and remember. Here’s a way to easily document these big and small monthly moments — create a set of 12 borders, one for each month of baby’s first year. Each month, print several pics and add them to a page layout, along with that month’s border. Jot down milestones and special memories and you’re all set… until next month!
The definition of flourish (as a noun) is as follows: A bold or extravagant gesture or action, made especially to attract the attention of others.

Once you have the photos from these adventures, check out this outdoor scrapbook layout and create it for yourself using your own memories!

The new Flourish collection captures the essence of the spring and summer seasons and brings them to life onto the pages of your albums! Spring is full of distinct senses: the sight of blooming flowers, the sounds of birds chirping and insects buzzing, the taste of honey and sweet treats, the smells of blossoming gardens and the feel of grass beneath your toes after a long winter. How were these senses and feelings so perfectly encapsulated? We sat down with Carrie, the designer and illustrator of Flourish, to learn more about what went into creating this collection!
Borders are essential to a good scrapbook layout. They tie the theme of the page together while also adding a little extra pizzaz to your layout. Past blog posts have shown you how to use the papers in collections to create dynamic borders, and the new Textures paper packs opened up a new realm of possibilities for creating gorgeous borders. You can take some borders from three 2018 collections (Sun-Kissed, Gather Together and Maritime) and add the Texture paper packs to transform them into something completely new. Check it out in today’s blog post!
