"Welcome Little One" Baby Greeting Card

Hey friends! So today I'm hoppin' on the blog to share the sweetest little card to welcome a new baby. I really love this one! I think all things baby are adorable but come on ... those little animal stickers peeking through each circle ... so stinkin' cute! I think this card should be saved in baby's first scrapbook, for sure. 😊

Cards are the perfect project when you want to give something handmade but short on time. They're fun and so easy. For this one, I used the Doodlebug Special Delivery Collection and the #9 circle window die from PhotoPlay. It fits the 3 7/8 x 8 7/8 envelope size perfectly. (Links below)


For the base of the card, I cut out white cardstock and added the yellow Sweet Dreams paper on top. I used the die to cut the 3 circles in the green gingham (Baby Blooms), then added
foam tape in between to add dimension. Don't you love the tiny stitch marks the die creates around each circle?! Such a cute detail.

Next, time to add the animals! The elephant is from the icon stickers and all the others are from the mini icons. I pulled an ear or a tail to the outside of the gingham paper because ... it just looked cute, lol!  And to finish it off, I used a stamp from Simon Says called Cuddly Critters Accessories Stamp Set for the "Welcome Little One" saying.

I hope you give this handmade card a try. I've included the product links below ... and have fun!

Splish Splash 12x12 Scrapbook Page

Hello scrappers! You may be waking up today with some winter Monday blues. So I figured, we need to mix it up! Let's focus on warmer days, sunshine and time spent by the pool or the beach! I'm looking forward to spring and more time outside. So, today I'm sharing an 8.5x11 layout titled Splish Splash.🐟

For this fun page, I went digging in my stash for bright colors and fun prints to go with my pool pictures of Rylee. I came across Doodlebug's Under the Sea Collection and thought ... yep, that'll do it! This will give me the sunny, happy project I was looking for!


I just love the little sea creatures & mermaids. And that Dolphin Doodle-pop is a perfect companion for my little swimming sweetie! I bet you have some fun summer pictures stashed away that would make a great project today. Pull them out and take a little mini mental vacation from the chilly season.


I started with a sheet of Doodlebug's petite print linen in Bumblebee and layered the print, Beach Treasures and white cardstock on top of that. I made a band across the top for Rylee's photos with Doodlebug's petite print linen in Limeade and the striped paper, Magical Things.
The row of fish along the top is a sticker from the Under the Sea Fancy Frills. I added another band across the bottom of Pink Pearls and Rainbow Bubbles. The 2x2 square Splish Splash is from Coral Reef. Then I made cute tags for journaling and decoration. 

I tried to link as many of the items as I could and I added some down below. Hope this gives you an escape from the snow! Have fun and happy scrappin'!

Hello Baby Scrapbook Album

Yay, it's Fridaaaay and my new album is here!!! It's titled Hello Baby and it's a perfect gender neutral scrapbook for a sweet little one. It has soft colors, the cutest animals and beautiful papers that look like watercolor paintings. The collection is by Asuka Studio and is called Dreamland. How cute is that for a baby collection title?!

I think it would be great to start this scrapbook before your baby is even born. You could document your pregnancy days, journal about your feelings and record first baby kicks. This album has 3 pockets so you can even save memorabilia like your ultrasound photos, pics of your growing belly, a baby shower invitation or greeting cards from loved ones.

Baby's arrival! Be sure to have someone take pictures of the labor, the delivery, first time holding your baby and looking into their teeny tiny face! Take photos of the hospital visits from family and friends, flowers sent and well-wishes from others. And then ... coming home from the hospital and realizing just how small they are when you place them in their car seat. 

Now comes the wonderfully sweet baby photos of everyday life! Everything they do is adorable so in addition to their physical changes, you'll probably want to record the traditional milestones like ... their first smile, laugh, bath, haircut and tooth. Take photos of their nursery and cuddles with their siblings and other family.

Don't forget, the first time they rolled over, their favorite toy, sitting up, crawling, walking, etc. So many great moments! And oh, the holidays! Add pictures of their first Easter basket, Halloween costume and their meeting with Santa.

 
This would also make an amazing baby shower gift for anyone who's expecting or a thoughtful present after the baby's arrival. You could buy it premade or as a kit and enjoy the process of making it yourself. Then tell them you handmade it and enjoy the accolades!!   

 
This sweet "Hello Baby" scrapbook is 8"x8" and has 12 pages (6 double sided). It has super useful pockets, fold out pages and will hold 36+ photos of your favorite little memories. So buy one today and enjoy your forever keepsake!
