Scrapbook Page Ideas: Baby Boy Scrapbook Page

This is probably one of the best scrapbook pages I’ve ever done, but hey I say that about all the pages I do. This scrapbook page layout shows pictures of my son (Riley) playing in his walker when he was about 8 months old. I used several different tools to complete the look of this page, but each can be easily replicated if you don’t have the tools needed.

The background of this page is a 12x12 sheet of cardstock in a yellow-y mustard-like color. I don’t know how to describe it. The color is a little brighter than a plain yellow, but not quite as bright as a mustard color. The green background features cute little cars and roadways, zipping and zooming all over the page. This is a We R Memory Keepers 12x12 page that I cut down to about 10x10 and placed on top of the yellow.
The pictures are 4x6 sizes that were cut down slightly to fit best and look right on the page I was creating and outlined with blue cardstock. The journaling in the bottom right-hand side of the page was typed into a circular frame on word and printed out. I then used a circular object, such as a cup or coffee can to trace the circles and then cut one out on the printer paper and then a slightly larger circle from a piece of red cardstock.

The cute little car in the top right-hand corner and the words “Play Time” listed in the left-center of the page are where you will need special tools. I created the words “Play Time” using a special font program on my computer by Creating Keepsakes. This program is great for creating really cute fonts, saving you time and energy for other things. You can easily make these fonts yourself if you have the time. Cut out blocks from white cardstock and blocks slightly bigger than the white, in  red cardstock. Glue those together and stamp or if you have good hand writing, write the letters in the white and red blocks for an actual handmade look.

The car was made using the Sizzix car stencil or die cut. The edges were perforated on the car die-cut so I was able to punch out the car in different colors, tear it apart and piece it back together with glue and in the end created a three dimensional car that is absoulutely adorable on this baby boy scrapbook page. If you are somewhat of an artist you could easily create a stencil of a car, trace it on several different colors of cardstock and then cut the pieces out to create your own unique car for this page, but the Sizzix car die cut can be purchased below if you wish to purchase one of you own. I have lots of little boy pictures with racing themes so this die-cut is worth it to me. The banner behind car I made myself just cutting strips of black and white cardstock.
Now get to scrappin’ those scrapbooks and keepsakes!
