On the 10th May I posted a sketch from Creative Scrappers – #103.  I said I would be putting a layout together from the sketch.  Well here it is!

I used:

I started with a 12×12 piece of green Core’dinations cardstock.  I also used a yellow strip of core’dinations for across the centre of the layout.

I am a big lover of Sassafras Lass papers and border and decided I wanted to use them for this layout.  I have used papers from two different ranges & cut outs from another range.

American Crafts foam sun/felt shapes

Maya Road alphas, I used Glimmer Mist/Cosmic Shimmer to colour the letters (the idea was to give them a sort of biscuit colour/texture)

Cosmo Cricket chipboard shape (around journalling paper)

WRMK Gromlets.

The layout is called Jacobiscotti as my grandson is called Jacob (as most of you probably already know) and he is eating a Heinz baby biscotti biscuit.

Hope you like it.

Jacobs 1st Day

This is my grandson Jacob.  The picture was taken at hospital the day he was born.

I wanted to do a layout about his birth which I think will be lovely for him to look at when he gets older.

I am not sure who the base cardstock is by (but I can find out if anyone wants me to), I added a sheet of Papermania’s scalloped 8×8 textured cardstock.  After shaping the photograph I layered it onto a piece of DCWV Nana’s Nursery cardstock.

After that I added the alphas for the title and rubs for the birth details and finished off with some ribbon/button & chipboard/brad embellishments.  Done!

This is one of my earlier layouts, but I still really like this one.

Hope you like it.
