I thought I would try the Project Life type system for creating some of my scrapbooking layouts. You know the type where you get the divided page protectors and create your layout in that manner. I chose some We R Memory Keepers page protectors to put in ringed binders which I bought (also We R Memory Keepers). I thought this would be easy and sort of freeing...and that I would just whip layouts out in no time at all! Wrong! These layouts took me just as long as my usually fiddled to death 12x12 layouts! First of all it too me forever to decided which divided page protector to use....I mean, there are just so many choices. Then I had to figure out which photos to put in...then which papers to use...then which cute embellies to use. I probably COULD have done it faster but it just didn't happen for me.
But it was still fun. I still love doing 12x12 layouts but will use these interspersed throughout my albums, I suppose. Gotta use up the 3 multipacks anyway! LOL!
Here are a couple of pages of Taylor's first bath:
I made the little baby in the bath tub with my Cricut and the Baby Steps cartridge. The 1st Bath title was cut on my Silhouette with a simple TTF font (which I can't recall right now!). I used some old paper I had that I'd gotten at JoAnn's off the rack and some Bazzil cardstock.
Here's a closeup of the little bathtub baby:
But it's all in the process....
