I hope you all had a nice weekend. Today, I finished a second set of 12x12 layouts for an album that a group of us are putting together for a co-worker that's expecting her first child. Seems to be a run on babies lately! I left the layouts quite simple as the book is going to a non-scrapbooker and I wanted to make it easy to add pics of the baby; just pop them on the photo mats. These will be going into an album with page protectors, so had to keep the dimensional embellies to a minimum.
The first layout is the birth announcement. I used Martha Stewart papers, as well as ribbon and embellies from the same line.
The 2nd layout I was given was: Home Sweet Home. I used the same MS paper and made the banner across the page by hand-cutting the stars and applying UTEE. The metal tag was from my stash.
The 3rd layout is Sweet Pea. Both the "Sweet Pea" title and cut-out are from the New Arrival cricut cartridge, which I embellished with some Prima Say it in Crystals.
