Rhylan's Invites

Funny to say this but I bought a Silhouette just to make these invites. LOL! I really did but I am super glad with my purchase and now use it for most of my cutting. I also LOVE the print and cut feature with the Silhouette. You use your own printer and then use the silhouette to cut it out after you have printed it. The silhouette software will also take images from the internet and turn them into images that can then be cut out. That is how I made the Girl Angry Bird. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this feature!

I made the back with the print and cut feature. I am so happy with how they turned out. Was not so happy when I realized I needed to make 25 of them.

Myah's Birthday Invite

I love using My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up to make super quick birthday invites. My girlfriend was looking for some Owl invites and was having a hard time finding any she liked. I used my computer and the My Digital Studio software and came up with this cute and personalized birthday invite. When she was done we sent it to our local photo lab and for $0.09 each she had some super cute invites. You could also chose to print them at home but I find that with all the colour it uses a lot of ink.

Nash's April Baby Book Page

Here is another layout for my nephew's baby book. I always find 8x8 album pages hard as you can only squeeze so many pictures on a page. I believe the inspiration for this layout came from a 8x8 album that my girlfriend Donna made. My group of scrapbooking friends have made a few of these albums over the years, I love to go back through them to help get some ideas for layouts and picture placements. Not a big fan of how this turned out in the photo but in person the colours look a lot better and it seems to go together better.

Nash's March Page

This is from my Nephew's Baby book that I made in the spring. Some of my Blog post never made it up when life started to get a little on the hectic side, so now I am playing catch up. These pages are made for a 8x8 album that will follow his whole first year. On the left is a spot to put a picture and on the right is where my sister-in-law can write about all of his special moments.

I used the Baby Kit from CTMH along with my Cricut to create the page. The calendar is made using the My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up.
