Happy New Year and welcome to 2011 at The Beary Scrap! For my first post of this new year I am excited to show you my take on our sketch for the current Beary Sweet Challenge. I am working on a baby book for a friend of mine and used the sketch to make the title page for her album:
I used the brand new My Mind's Eye line Fine & Dandy True Blue (boy) and I love, love, love this cute collection. ( I have the girl line too so you'll be seeing it in my future posts as well!) The colors and patterns are so awesome and just perfect for boys of all ages-- I thought they were fun colors for a baby book-- definitely little boyish but not the traditional baby blue.
For this title page I also used some random ribbons, letter stickers and stars diecut on my Sizzix. And what could be more perfect for a darling little boy than Oliver the Dog?
I used Kimm's awesome Oliver pattern, mulberry paper and Tear Bear tools to make my little puppy and added him to the page. Over the next week, I will be posting other pages from this album one my blog, so come check them out for more baby book ideas and more looks at this great paper line, including matching buttons, brads and chipboard accents.
Now it's your turn and I can't wait to see what you come up with using this sketch-- remember it can be a card or a layout and entering it by 11:59 EST on Jan. 14th for a chance to win a voucher to The Beary Scrap.
