Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler: New Orleans Scrapbook Layout

New Orleans. NOLA. The Big Easy. Birthplace of Jazz. N’awlins. A city by many names, but all conjure the attitude of “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” (“Let the good times roll!”) that hangs in the city’s humid air. New Orleans is a melting pot of so many cultures and people, and with that, many items to enjoy and see — the purple, green and gold beads and party parades of Mardi Gras, the history of the French Quarter, jazzy tunes enveloping the streets, the beauty of bayous and low-lying wetlands, ghost tours, the wafts of crawfish étouffée, jambalaya, red beans and rice, sweet and fluffy beignets and more delicious fare — there’s so much to love in this U.S. bucket-list city. Let’s, as they say in NOLA, “pass the good time” with this New Orleans scrapbook layout to relive those great times!

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.
