Heartfelt Week - day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Hearfelt week: Seven-ish days of creations made with the new Heartfelt die cuts from CTMH! :)

Here is another set of pages for our new baby's book. My vision for these pages is to include some photos of her just after she is born. I'd like to put tiny hands/feet pics in the small photo boxes. For the second page, I want to have a photo of her and her birth momma in the felt frame on page two. Hopefully her birth mom will be willing to do this... if not we'll just put another cute shot of our princess there. In the journaling box I'll talk about our baby's "Special Delivery" and how she came to be a part of our family.





Materials: Heartfelt Die Cut Felt Shapes, Floral Tapestry papers, Big Pinks paper flowers (colored with hollyhock reinker), Courdoroy Brads from Winter Cozy Mini Medleys, Circle Window Charms, Dimensional Elements Borders, Spring Blossom brads, Pure Love stamps, Love Always stamps (the back side of one heart), Chocolate Alphabet Small stamps, and a promotional alphabet set no longer available, Journey Journaling Spots.

oh.. and here's a tip for adhering your felt! You can use a strong adhesive like Tombo or ATG tape. However I've found a fast drying liquid glue that is awesome! It's from Beacon and it's called "Fabri-Tac". It's a permanant adhesive that dries clear and bonds fabric, ribbon, cloth, paper, metal and more! I love it. :) Try "googling it" or find it at Michaels in the glue section.

your layouts are beautiful (as always) - I can't wait to see the rest!! Can't wait to see your little one when she arrives! I wish I'd pre-made some layouts before my son's birth a month ago- time flies so fast!

I love your use of the felt. I have them but haven't used them yet - well maybe because I haven't scrapped much lately ;-P Anyway, you've inspired me - I hope to put mine to good use now - TFS!

Best wishes to you and your family and your upcoming new addition!
