Layouts from the kitchen

I like to have my camera handy when I am in the kitchen - there is always something interesting happening. Sometimes I need to think - should I take the baby down from the table or should I take the picture first :)

I took the picture first but for the record the baby is safe.
Here are 2 layouts from not so dramatic events. Eli is enjoying his pickle. Who would think that 13 months old will like pickles?? I used Week 1 sketch from Six Weeks of Sketches on Ella Publishing blog.

Supplies: Cardstock (core'dinations), patterned paper (Basic Grey, Creative Imaginations), letter stickers (Scenic Route), chipboard (Basic Grey), raindots (Cloud 9), Fiskars USX template and sandpaper for the scallops

To create the scallops I put this Fiskars template under the cardstock and went over the edges with a piece of sandpaper. I used whitewash core'dinations cardstock with green core. I found it at my local Jo-Ann. Love core'dinations! So pretty!
Here Ella and Eli are sharing fruit snacks. That's when we found out that he really likes them. This little baby has a sweet tooth :)

The little windows are cut with Fiskars USX using freehand cutting. The cupcake is also cut with USX using the cupcake template.

Supplies: cardstock (Bazzil), patterned paper (K&Co), letter stickers (Heidi Grace), tab (SEI), raindots (Cloud 9), Fiskars USX


  1. Lovely! Eli is very cute! I like the little cupcake on the second layout.

  2. I love what you did to create the scallops with the Core'dinations cardstock. What a neat look and cute layout. I like that he likes pickles.

  3. My oldest liked pickles when he was that age too (still does). Love the sanding that you did to the cardstock.

  4. Very cute layouts! I love what you did with the scallops!

  5. Cute l/o's! What is with kids and fruit snacks? A is a little fiend. Find wrappers everywhere.
