Three Things


I am continuing to gather up bits of pink and bits of texture as I go about beginning to create pages for Anna. So drawn to these soft pinks right now. 

1. Madeline Butterfly Chipboard Box
: Butterflies are just a basic for me. These ones are double-sided and
many of them have little gems already attached. Love the mix of
patterns (all part of the Madeline line from K&Company).

2. Making Memories Cantaloupe Paint : There is just something so soft and delicate about pale pink.

3. Prima Wildwood Collection Wood + Mulberry Flowers : I am drawn to these – totally not sure what to do with them yet – maybe use on the front of an album?

    After years and years of scrapbooking very masculine pages (even for my nieces) I tried to give pink a try and its like an animal has been leashed! I look forward to buying things for nieces and great nieces pages and its starting to even out between the two.

    I know the feeling! I had two boys first, then a little princess. I just couldnt (and still cant) stop shopping for pink. Luckily she likes the color too. And girls clothes ARE more fun than boys. Enjoy the time with your little princess. It goes by so very quickly. I feel like it was yesterday that I was hanging around on the couch, with my little girl in my arms, and now shes 21/2 and runs around like crazy:) Cant wait to see her pink pages…

    I love the choices! I have two boys and still use lots of flowers on my pages, but I can’t get away with pink paint and pale girly flowers like yours!

    Hi Ali…
    I have been a fan and blog followe of yours for some time now and I always look forward to your daily postings. I had to post today because today’s post gives me such a chuckle. I am experiencing cognitive dissonace…look at all the pink and flowers. Your sweet baby girl brought along a world of pink for you and your art. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the pink.

    I fell in love with the color pink while pregnant with my daughter, and I’ve never looked back! Even my office walls are now a soft pink!
    Those chipboard butterflies look gorgeous, thanks for the inspiration.

    I can’t wait to see what you create for Anna! I haven’t started on Claire’s book and she’s already 7.5 weeks old. Hopefully seeing some of your baby pages will get me motivated to work on hers.

    I had so much fun doing that when my daughter Erin was born! Except I was drawn to purples :0)
    I had so much “boy” stuff from my son Evan and hardly any “girly” things!

    I am picking up those butterflies this weekend. I am so into them at the moment. Have been waiting for the best time to create that butterfly framed thingy you created last year, too. I think I’ll use some of these!! Thanks for posting this weekly.
    Also…I know you are enjoying little Anna. So happy for you.

    Love all the pink. I have a 4 year old daughter, so I’m used to scrapping pink, but with a 1 week old baby girl, it’s even sweeter right now. :)

    omgosh, I HAVE to have those butterflies!! those butterflies – I’m going out to get them today. :)

    I’ve been waiting for a beautiful pink baby book kit from you now that you have a little girl. My daughter is 7 and I did a cute homemade book for my son (now 9) and Camille wants to know when I’m going to do hers. I keep thinking if I wait long enough you’ll have this amazing, easy book to throw pics in. Any thoughts??

    I fell in love with the Prima Flowers also. I prefer the “sage” color-not being fortunate enough to have a beautiful little girl. I don’t know what I’d do with them either-I was thinking shadow box.

    Jaime said…

    It must be so fun to create “girl pages” after so many years of “boy” ones. Scrapping without the color pink would be so hard for me! : )

    Thanks for sharing, Ali. I’m absolutely tickled “soft pink” for you. :)

    Funny how sometimes the thing you most need has a way of appearing. I began a daily mini-book I’ve titled March into Spring and your digi circle #’s sang right out to me. I can think of some applications for the other products also. Thanks Ali.

    How cool – pink pages! As a mother of 2 boys I hear you Ali. I was SOOOO excited when my sister made me godmother of her daughter as I scrap her a lot! Pink – gotta love it!!!

    I, too, love those new Prima flowers!!! I love bulky, lumpy pages so I’ll be putting them straight onto the layouts ;D
    Kisses to Simon & Anna!

    Ah, pink. MY favorite color and have pink everything!! I was blessed with 3 girls, then a boy. Now I’m the only girl in a house with 3 males (husband, son, stepson). BUT, I still have my pink.

    PAM said…

    Enjoy the couch, Ali, because before you know it she’ll be moving around and won’t want to be still on the couch with you anymore! I’m sure you recall this from your young Simon days!
    Treasure this time, and all time…it truly is far too fleeting! We just celebrated our youngest son’s 6th birthday, and I’m thinking, “Where did the last 2,190 days go?” lol I think there is a layout there somewhere!

    Gorgeous – love the butterflies. And for the flowers: why not using them for a wall picture (similar to the one you’ve made with the butterflies)?
