Just us

Good morning everyone!

This layout makes my heart swoon!! Actually it’s the 2 little short ones that makes my heart swoon – but I love any layout with them in it ♥ No more words for how swoony I feel – must be a mother kinda thing. 1 is born at Thanksgiving and the other at X’mas and 2 days before my my own b’day – so they are my Thanksgiving and b’day/X’mas gifts. Why do I say that? Because this is the last week to enter into the Stampendous gift challenge!

Here ya go … doesn’t that make you want to go awwww … They’re just playing and he is just shoving the Nuk into everyone’s mouth ;)

Here are some details of how I did the page:


Cardstock: Bazzill

Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle, My Mind’s Eye

Stamp: Stampendous

Ink: Ranger

Buttons: Dress it up

Chipboard hearts: Fancy Pants

Vellum Hearts: Black Ink

Tab: American Craft

Stickers: American Craft

Washi Tape: K & Co

Pinking Shears: Fiskars

Die: Spellbinders

Die cut machine: Sizzix

Thread: Gutterman

Sewing Machine: Kenmore

Adhesive: Scotch



  1.  Attach multi-colored stripped patterned paper onto layout background.
  2. Die cut eyelet circle and trim top and bottom edge of a strip of grey cardstock with pinking shears. Decorate top edge with washi tape.
  3. Attach photos to stripped panel. Tuck die cut eyelet circle under left photo and embellished grey cardstock under right photos. Add journaled tab to left photo.
  4. Roughly sew multiple lines to resemble tree truck and branches vertically through the middle of the page.
  5. Stamp kids swinging on both sides of the layout.
  6. Randomly decorate tree branches with hearts to create a variety of texture and dimension.

Now go scrap your awwww moments while I admire my children.
