6 month Pregnancy/Baby Scrapbook Layout using Dotty & Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Wednesday, May 2, 2012

I just wanted to share the new scrapbook layout I made. I'm having a baby girl {Londyn} in August and have been tracking my growth as well as leaving room for a baby photo at that same stage on scrapbook layouts. I have done several layouts for her scrapbook already... the announcement, the it's a girl page and then a few month ones. This one that I did today is my 6 month one.

The layout features a pregnancy photo of me (just shy of 6 months), an ultrasound pic of baby Londyn that just was taken on Monday and then a spot for a photo of her when she is 6 months. Cute idea, right? I thought so! =) It gets me ahead on my scrapbooking so I'm not having to do pregnancy layouts AND ultrasound ones AND baby stages.

As you can see I used my FAVORITE cricut cartridge ever ... the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge! If you're a regular blog follower you know that I use this cartridge from Close To My Heart for literally EVERY project I create. It is so versatile and can be used for layouts, cards, home decor and 3D items. I can't get enough of it. So anyways... I used it to create the fun banners cut in various sizes down the side in CTMH white daisy cardstock with hand drawn stitching using a CTMH smoothie marker, the hearts were cut in CTMH smoothie cardstock, the scalloped circle was cut using the Dotty for You paper pack like the rest of the layout and the pennant banner at the top was also cut with CTMH white daisy with more hand drawn stitching using CTMH smoothie marker.

I really like the fun look of the layout... I had no idea how I was going to do this layout when I started. I just grabbed the Dotty for You paper pack, started cutting the scalloped circle and the square base and the idea just kind of grew from there. =)

I used the CTMH Polka Dot Alphabet set to stamp the "6" and then CTMH Typeface to spell out "months". The gorgeous rosette ribbon is in the CTMH Designer Ribbon Pink Collection. Love it! Also used some CTMH Twine to tie some little CTMH Lagoon bows for in between the pennant banners. That is about it.. it was a fairly simple layout to create. I hope you like it.

Hi Mandy, Great layout. Love seeing stuff with the Dotty for you paper. I am also due this summer but the end of June. I too am having a girl. I want to start pages and likely will start them soon but I have so many pages left to do for my son. Did you manage to see my superman page. It got quite the attention on the CTMH facebook page. Good luck with everything. Tracey - CTMH consultant from Canada.
