My Photogenic Nephew

This layout is of my nephew when he was 2 years old.

I am way behind in my scrapbooking because I only started this hobby about 3 years ago. My oldest is now 35, my daughter is 25, and my nephew and niece are both nearly 20 so I have a lot of catching up to do.

This shouldn’t be a problem because I have plenty of supplies and enjoy this hobby immensely!

For this layout, I cut rectangles and distressed all the edges. Then I turned down two corners and held them in place with brads from my stash.

The camera is a MFT die.

I cut the word “My” in the title with the Type Candy cartridge, joining the letters together in Cricut Craft Room. The word “nephew” was cut with the Tiny Treasures cartridge. I used some Making Memories felt letters for the word “photogenic”.

I stitched around the edges of the layout with some straight and zig zag stitches.

Below is a video that describes the layout in detail:

Grandparents

Grandparents hold a special place in their grandchildren’s heart, from the very first sight. In this two-page layout I wanted to capture the essence of the first meeting. My favorite picture is the candid shot of my dad hold his first grandchild for the first time. It was such a special moment. You could feel the love in the room as we introduced her to the family. It is amazing what you can capture with a picture phone, when a camera is not available.

Process:

I don’t use sketches often,but here is my process. I based my design on the quote “Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart” ~Winnie the Pooh~ from there I knew I wanted to cut out Pooh (since he said the quote), Tigger (my favorite) and Eeyore (husbands favorite).

Eeyore

I divided the paper in half for the first page of the layout, then the second page was divided into fourths.I love the polka dot paper from The Paper Company, I wanted to add some fun color to the pages.To divide the secitions with Bazzil Double Scoop Mint Chip paper and Spool O’ Ribbon in Spring Green. The pictures were made to look they were hanging up, I used Doodle Bug sugar coated brads in yellow, and brown embroidery floss.

Hanging Picture Look

Tip: When adding embroidery floss to your photographs, use your Cricut tool kit and punch holes where you want to pull the string through first. Then use an embroidery needle to pull the floss through, tie it in 3 or 4 knots before pulling the tail through to the backside and tape it down.When putting it on the brad wrap the floss around the brad once so it will stay tight. I love how this turned out.
