I love doing baby scrapbook layouts and with the wonderful dies and papers at ItsyBitsy, it's really a pleasure to put such pages together. I wanted to do a layout for a boy that was not confined to the traditional blue colour scheme. My attempt was to make a cute fun baby boy layout using non-traditional colours. After much trial and error, the colour scheme I selected was red, yellow and white and here is the layout I created.
ItsyBitsy has this great sailor outfit die that is really quite adorable. You get a t-shirt, a romper and a little sailor hat within the die. I decided to put it to use to create a little clothes line at the top of the page, because nothing says baby like baby clothes hanging to dry. The yellow paper I used is from the DCWV Lemon Flower Stack and and the red paper is from the ItsyBitsy punch paper range. And I hope you didn't miss the cute little heart buttons on the romper!! So adorable right, perfect to complement the heart die cut that came with the sailor suit!
For the baby book text I wanted to create this kind of alphabet block look which was super easy to do. Here's a picture tutorial of how I did it. The letters are cut from the Sizzix Word Play Die and I rounded the corners with the ItsyBitsy corner punch.
Finally to embellish the side I used the Sizzix Bigz Bird Die which again I think is super cute! All the different elements come in separate dies so that you can cut each in any paper of your choice. It also includes dies for the eyes and eye balls but I decided to go with the buttons which I think look super cute!
Here's a picture tutorial of how I put one of the birds together. Really straightforward but it gives you an idea of how the die cuts emerge.
How do you like my colours and the little baby elements? Would love to hear from you. Do leave a comment and let me know!
