Take a look at my layout:

Altenew July 2017 blog hop

I truly love how this layout turned out.  I have to admit, when I sat down to create this page, I was clueless as to what I wanted to do.  I knew I wanted to use this photo of my sisters baby bump.  As I moved papers and embellishments around, it all came together.

For this layout, I used three of the new stamp sets, Altenew Baby Balloon, Little One and Extended Family.  I paired them with Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

My baby sister is having a baby and my entire family can not wait for her this little one to arrive. So I decided to dedicate a page to my sister.

To create this page:

  • I cut the white card base to 6 x 8 and rounded the corners using We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board.
  • Creating the title was the next step.  Using the Extended Family stamp set to cut out the word niece and adhere it to the title using the Brother ScanNCut.Altenew July 2017 blog hop
  • The onesie from Altenew Little One was a perfect addition to add to this page.
  • I didn’t have the die to cut these out so I used my Brother ScanNCut to cut out the onesies.
  • Spray each of the onesie with Altenew Frosty Pink Spray Ink and dry them.
  • Once they dried, punch a hole at the top and string the silver twine though the holes.
  • Adhere the twine to the back of the white card panel.
  • Adhere the photo onto the white card panel using foam dots.
  • Use Altenew Baby Balloon stamp set and stamp the sentiment at the bottom of the white card panel.Altenew July 2017 blog hop
  • Adhere the card panel onto the pattern paper using foam dots.
  • Cut some of the white flowers that come in the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and place them to the right side of the photo under the white card panel.Altenew July 2017 Blog Hop
  • To add balance to the page, stamp a sentiment from the Baby Balloon stamp set on the main scrapbook page, to the right of the photo.
  • To finish the page off, add enamel dots in random places on the layout.

Nothing to it!! So what do you think? I would love to hear from you.

  1. This brought back a lot of memories, and great joy that there are no photos of my own pregnant belly! I can remember wondering why all my friends in college were so excited about somebody else’s baby, then figuring it out when my own sister was expecting my first nephew! ( Ultrasound technology was brand new and not really reliable for determining gender–it was only used rarely in those days, and only very high-risk centers had them.!) Great layout.

  2. The perfect page for a big event, it is Gorgeous!!! Love every little detail! Some day your niece will love looking at this…..such a great way to capture the moment 😊!

  3. Congratulations on the arrival of you new family member! Adorable layout! Awesome Altenew release! Loving this blog hop with all it’s talent and inspiration! Thanks for sharing yours!

  4. I love the scrapbook page! Reminds me of when my youngest sister was pregnant. She looked like she had a basketball under her stomach because she’s so small. My niece is going to be 23 this year! I can’t believe it! You are going to be a great aunt I’ll bet. Take plenty of pictures of the new baby. Thanks for showing us your scrapbook page and for giving us the chance to win something.

  5. Such a unique layout. I had to write down the Winnie the Pooh saying. Sure hope your sis doesn’t have too much longer to wait. That is quite a “bump”!

  6. Yes, I love your take on the baby stamp set! So cute the way you paired it with the photo of the baby bump!

  7. You win my vote for the most fun use of the “Onsies” stamp. Your sister will keep this treasure forever–and isn’t that why we craft? to bring joy to others? You did it! Wow!
