My Creative Time- Scrapping the Little Things

Happy Monday!! Today, is my first time joining in on Scrapping the Little Things over at My Creative Time.

I had so much fun creating this layout!! I love how Emma's products really help to bring my scrapbook layouts to another level. They are so easy and fun to work with! Plus, they are so versatile!! The possibilities are endless!!

As you have probably already read, this is my youngest son when he was just 7 weeks old. I so wish they could stay this little for a bit longer. 

I had done a little photo shoot with him and some blocks I had gotten from the dollar area in Target. Since they only stay little once, I wanted to capture as much as I could!

After I had created the base of my layout using card stock, pattern paper, and my photo, I started to embellished it with My Creative Time products.

I added little hearts from the MCT: Sweethearts and XOXO dies to the corners of the pattern paper.

Then I stamped a sentiment from MCT: Puffy Hearts For You onto the MCT: Stitched Tab Die. I finished the tab by adding little hearts from the MCT: 4x4 Journal and More Die Set.

I jazzed up the ribbon by adhering a bunch of xoxo's from the MCT: Sweethearts and XOXO dies. Then I cut out three different size hearts from the same set using card stock and burlap paper.

Lastly, I stamped on his name and age using the letters and a number from the MCT: Just Simply Live Stamp Set onto cut outs from the MCT: Stitched and Curly Label Dies. Once again, I added two little hearts from the MCT: 4x4 Journal and More Die set.

Below I have listed everything I used to create this layout. Plus, all the links will take you directly to each My Creative Time product.
