Woodland Whimsy Baby Borders

What’s not to love about the new Woodland Whimsy Baby Collection? The colors, the patterns and the oh-so-adorable baby animal stickers are breathtaking! I couldn’t wait to play…

These borders are designed with options for both boys and girls and play really nicely with the Woodland Whimsy Fast2Fab predesigned pages. Make them up, and use as you wish to add a little flair on pages of baby’s monthly milestones.

Tip: You may want to wait to add the month shapes, as you can mix and match any of the borders with any months as you create your baby’s album.

Woodland Whimsy Baby Samplers

The Woodland Whimsy Baby Boy and Baby Girl Collections just might be my favorite product line yet!  Both collections are full of versatile prints and incredibly cute embellishments and stickers.  However, these collections are not just for baby photos.  The woodland theme is also perfect for any type of outdoor photos.  In fact, I think that the collections are neutral enough to be used for almost any type of photos.

As always, Creative Memories is right on trend with these collections.  The woodland theme is currently a popular motif for baby nurseries, and both of my samplers would make a cute decor item.  They could be used with an easel on a dresser or framed for the wall.  The samplers would also make a great introduction page to a baby scrapbook album.

Digital Scrapbook Layouts using Woodland Whimsy

Woodland Whimsy for boys and girls is sweet for babies and is on trend, but it doesn’t need to be used for just babies!  My babies are not babies anymore, but I loved using this sweet kit for photos of them!

The soft colours in Woodland Whimsy Baby Girl Collection is perfect for photos of Lauren and I.  I love the triangles in the kit so I resized them, filled them with different papers and created a layout with triangles.  I even tucked a couple of triangles behind my photos.

Celebrate the Women in your Life

 

Today is International Women’s Day, so let’s remember and celebrate the women who have been impactful in our lives.

For some, it may have been an inspirational teacher you had growing up, or perhaps a boss or supervisor who went the extra mile to show you success. For me, it was my maternal grandmother, Leona, who we affectionately called “Grandma Onie.” My goal in this life is to be half the woman she was. Let me tell you a little bit about her.

Sorbet Fast2Fab + New Tools = Sweet!

Fast2Fab Albums have quickly become my favorite way to scrapbook! I love how quickly and easily the pages come together, helping me stay caught up on my projects. Plus, with the matching papers and embellishments, I can add a little personalization and flexibility to the printed pages.

Here are a few sweet Fast2Fab layouts combining the Sorbet Collection with some of the newest tools. A BEFORE photo shows the pre-printed layout, and an AFTER photo is what it looks like with a few simple touches. I’ve added a few tried and true “F2F TIPS” that help me make the most of this way of album-making. If you haven’t tried a Fast2Fab yet…what are you waiting for?
