Happy Saturday.... I love weekends. I worked for so many years (50+) and weekends were so precious. Now, even after over 5 years of retirement, I still cherish a Saturday or two. Recently one of my wonderful clients from my work years asked if I had a pre-made baby scrapbook. I said I didn't have one pre-made, but I would be so happy to do pages all designed so that the recipients could just add photos. I did 40 pages, 20 for each scrapbook. I pulled out every cartridge that had baby die cuts available.
A Child's Year, All Mixed Up, Creative Memorie's Stork Delivery, Cricut Sampler, Cuttin' Up, Doodlecharms, Gypsy Wanderings (Gypsy) Heritage, Life Is a Party, B is for Boy, Lyrical Letters, New Arrival, Paper Doll Dress Up, Simply Charmes, Stamping, Stretch Your Imagination, and Wild Card.
I kept two trays, one for a new baby boy and a second tray for baby boy twins just born. So basically I was cutting 3 die cuts almost in each case. . Once all of the die cuts and sentiments were cut or stamped, I pulled out a new designer's paper pack with baby theme papers. The pack had 48 pages, and once they were trimmed to the 12x12 size, I started designing assembly line style (my fave way to go...) I was so pleased with the finished pages, and I made one final little baby themed door hanger.
My friend just has to decide which new parent or grandparent to give it to.
