I've been concentrating on scrapbooking a lot more lately. While card making is my number one love, scrapbooking holds a big place in my heart because it centers around my family. Memory keeping is HUGE for me and I'm glad that I get to share my family memories with you!
My all time favorite collection from Echo Park is Little Boy. I have two little boys of my own and find myself reaching for the super cute patterns in this collection OFTEN! I have three projects to share with you today that all use elements from the Little Boy collection!
LOVE this first layout- encompasses all the fun of little babies... I miss those times every now and then! The little man in the green is my little Austin and the pretty girl in the blue is a dear friend's daughter. It was so fun to see them interact together!
All elements are from the Little Boy collection including this journaling card and the sticker letters. So easy to throw a page together when all of the elements coordinate so nicely!
Mixing and matching the patterns is one of my favorite things to do when I get a new collection and these patterns work together so well! I added a faux stitch border around the entire page with a black pen. The stamp on the bottom of the page is a SMASH stamp!
This next layout was another really fun one to create! It brought back so many fond memories! It's a series of pictures of my poor little baby boy being kissed by our puppy, Ellie! SO cute!
Again, I used the Little Boy collection a lot on this page! The buttons are perfect for punching out and using as embellishments. The title is layered on a hand cut journal tag I made with the Mini Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger set from PTI. The lines I used for the journaling are also from that set!
I added some great green satin ribbon to really draw attention to the photos on the page. This is a fun ruffle technique that really adds a lot of punch!
And lastly, I would like to share a clean and simple birthday card!
The focal image of this card is actually cut straight from the front sheet of the collection kit! Couldn't get any easier than that! And that also means that NO piece of this kit will go to waste! Haha! I added a strip of the scalloped sticker from the Alpha Stickers sheet, tied a pretty white ribbon around, and adhered it to the card base! Easy peasy! Then, I stamped this fun birthday sentiment from PTI's Say It With Style set and added a little rhinestone accent! What a fun and QUICK card!
I hoped you enjoyed seeing a little more scrapbooking on the blog- I really am having a blast trying to catch up and document these memories! There will be much, much more to come!
Thanks for stopping by today!!
