Its so weird looking back at these layouts, and its crazy how much I have already forgotten, i am just so glad that i have these little snippets immortalised in these pages.
This is the first page I made, and it’s Craig’s favourite. Once again I took inspiration from the wonderfully talented Nichol Magouirk. Love her style!
I used a technique tuesday stamp to emboss on vellum. I am LOVING this look by the way. It gives such a tactic feel to the page. I used my Stampa-ma-jig to make sure the words were (roughly) lined up. Oh, and i purposely started with Wednesday because my chicken was born on a Wednesday, so the start of this fourth week as a mom began on that day.
See those little tags peeking out? They were little titchy pieces of pattern paper hiding in my scraps box. Now they have a new life on this page. Sometimes with pretty papers i just cant throw them away no matter how small they are…especially that yellow paper which i loved – it is so bright and cheery, and sometimes its just kinda hard to find a nice yellow paper.
Hand written journaling for this one. Well, at least for the journaling which refers to Piper which i have cut intot journaling strips. For the bits of info about me for this week I typed up on the computer – can you see the wee box. I just made the pink border myself in photoshop.
Thanks for joining me as i scrapbooked this memorable journey of my new life as a mother. Its been five months now, and it really is amazing how much you pick up really quickly….
..and how much you just make up as you go along! heehee
