Birthday Banners

I have finally started working on actual 12 x 12 scrapbook pages. I keep telling myself I'm only getting farther behind, especially since my oldest is 15! My busy mom strategy now is to utilize all of these fabulous layout sketches that are so readily available on the internet. I especially love that I can "pin" it to a specific "board" on Pinterest and access it wherever I'm at. I don't have to use up any extra memory on my laptop either.

I used a sketch from Sketch Savvy to get a quick jump on this birthday layout for when my son turned six. I arranged the layout in Cricut Craft Room and used the Blast Off Imagine cartridge. I just love all of it's fun colors and patterns. For more texture and interest I added some small pieces of ribbon along with bakers twine, hand dyed seam binding ribbon and a button. I'm also using this layout for The Crop Stop, and Die Cuttin' Divas.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a creative day:-)


  1. What a bright and fun LO for a 6 year old. I love all the banners and the pretty colours.
    Don't panic about getting all those scrapbook LOs 'done'. They will still be there as the kids grow and are making the memories now. I love working with photos of my kids and family from when they were small. Brings back so many good memories. :)
