About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Sunshine & Sprinkles baby stats pages

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been working on baby scrapbooks, both 12×12 and 8×8. This is a 2-page 8×8 layout for recording details about the baby’s birth along with significant newborn stats. I started with Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP and went from there. I wanted something bright and fun that could be for either a boy or a girl, and this paper is perfect for baby books.

I made the charts in My Digital Studio using Basic Gray and a free font I downloaded and installed. I printed out the charts on Whisper White cardstock, cut them out and rounded the corners, then added the little flourishes from the Tiny Tags stamp set. You can use any font installed on your computer in MDS (just make sure to scan them for viruses when you download them!). You can download a free 30-day trial of MDS here.

The vines are from the retired set Baroque Motifs, but the current sets Flowering Flourishes and Everything Eleanor would work here too. The ribbon in the big flower is also retired, but you could use any coordinating ribbon, like the Marina Mist Striped Organdy Ribbon from the Spring Catalog. The small yellow flowers in the corners are from Baroque Motifs (cut with the smallest Floral Frames framelits die). Other flowers were punched using the Boho Blossoms punch, one of my favorite ways to add a little extra to my pages.

My favorite parts of the layout are the “Miracles Happen” and “Oh Happy Day” sentiments. They’re both from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Sale-A-Bration stamp set (sadly retired, but I’m really hoping the PTB will put it in the new catalog that comes out at the end of May). I embossed it in white on Melon Mambo cardstock (when I made the same pages for a boy, I used Pacific Point instead of Melon Mambo) and cut it (and the Whisper White backing layer) using Apothecary Accents framelits dies.
