Happiness is...Snuggly Babies

Hello there everyone - Jen here from Caffeinated Papercuts, and I do not have a card for you. It's true, no card today.

What, you're still here? Why don't you believe me?? There is no card here! There's only a walk down memory lane to a very pregnant me and an adorable baby. Now shoo!

I can't decide which you're more excited to see; ridiculously pregnant me or the adorable baby that was the result.

All right then, so here's what happened; I sat down to make a card, but had babies on the brain as my baby big boy turns 5 today. FIVE! He's a bit bigger and mouthier than he was when he arrived, but still has his red hair and inquisitive personality...and he still squirms constantly. So instead of making a card, I found myself digging out a couple of photos I hadn't scrapped yet (because Mama is sooooooo far behind!) and made a 12x12 layout instead. You do know you can stamp on your scrapbook pages, right? ;)

Now, let's face it; being pregnant is ok and all, but there's nothing better than your little one finally arriving and 'breathing air' as my dear friend Lynda says.

I started with a piece of 12x12 paper that had the little border and giraffe already printed on it and went from there. Some Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks through a heart stencil:

A strip of coordinating paper in baby feet to ground the photos with some glitter pen faux stitching added on, a bit of Texture Paste through an arrow stencil, and Glossy Accents for the giraffe's spots. A few buttons to finish it off, and my Happiness is...toes to tickle and a baby to snuggle stamped in Memento Pistachio and Teal Zeal.

Be sure to join in our September challenge of using our Happiness is stamp line. If you don't have a blog you can link up via Instagram or just play along over at our Facebook group. I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with! Me, I'm going to to eat some cupcakes now...LOL

Happy birthday to my sweet boy, and Happy Crafting!

  1. Love it Jen! I fortunately have finished all my baby pic scrapbooking. It is when he got older that I didn't continue. I really should though! Love the prego pic!

  2. Happy Birthday, Little K! And I am sorry, but you may just be the cutest thing EVER pregnant! I looked like a beached whale and you are rockin it!

  3. Omg! This is super cute Jen! ^__^ You look adorable! <3 Such a beautiful layout! *Big Panda Hugs*


Woo hoo! Comment time! I totally do a little happy dance every time a new one pops up!
