Cathy - Baby Boy Layout 1

Hello Maja Design friends! I am the keeper of memories in my family. I am the eldest of five children and it brings me great joy in creating albums for my siblings. I am currently working on an album for my brother and this is him as a newborn many years ago.

I created this bead cluster using beads from my stash. It is looped around the wire frame that I created using florists wire. To create the round shape, I moulded the wire around a modelling paste container that was just the right size.

I used a Kaisercraft’s Hidden Treasures stamp to create this tag. It is vintage and fits perfectly with a baby page.

I use flowers in all of my layouts. I tucked in some cheese cloth to add some texture. I used some Prima flowers as well as some Green Tara flowers…all blue, varying in sizes to frame the photo. The top flowers are anchoring the ends of the florist wire frame.

I used a sentiment from a Kaisercraft stamp set and used some left overs to form this cluster. Banners are so helpful to fill in spaces and to use up scraps of paper. I used foam tape to add dimension.

I machine stitched and distressed the edges of my papers. I also used foam tape again to add dimension. I used a Martha Stewart Lattice Heart Punch to edge one of my papers. It also frames part of my photo. For my background, I used Cotton Candy Gelato and a Tim Holtz dot fade stencil to compliment the blue in the papers.

Hi! I'm Cathy. I live in Sydney and am a Primary School teacher. I am passionate about teaching and love what I do. At present paper crafts are my creative outlet, which is my other passion. I am drawn to vintage, shabby chic styled crafts which I love to create. I do enjoy other crafts such as sewing, quilting, knitting and crotchet…not enough time! I am always inspired to learn and to try new techniques in both teaching and my crafts. I love Maja Design papers and enjoy creating with them.
