Oh Boy!!!

Scrapbook kits are a great way to create perfectly coordinated projects and layouts and Karen Foster’s Little Prince scrapbooking kit is a great start to creating projects that showcase your special baby boy.
To compliment the Little Prince scrapbook kit, I also received Loopy Bradlines, Ribbon Trimmings, Stacked Stickers, and a sheet of Clearly Stickers.
For my first project, I used a sheet of Rocking Horse on a dark brown background and layered a strip of Baby Boy Collage and Baby Boy Dots along the left side of the layout. I also added a strip of ribbon trimmings and a cardstock sticker from the Little Prince sticker sheet.

I decided to make coordinating layouts of both of my boys for my mother-in-law so I started with a dark green background and layered the Green Prince and Baby Boy Dots for my background. I then added a strip of Baby Boy Collage along the top with a strip of ribbon along the bottom edge. I added cardstock stickers from Little Prince and Cutie Pie along with a couple of the clear stickers from the Precious Boy clearly sticker sheet.

A handmade baby card is always special so I decided to use the Karen Foster Scrapbook kit and accessories to create a card. I used dark brown and green cardstock for my background colors and added a strip of Hobby Horse patterned paper along the left edge of the card. The Loopy Bradlines came in a variety of primary blues, greens, and purples, but I found that I really wanted brown. To fix this problem I embossed the Loopy Bradlines with brown embossing powder and now the brads would match my card.
The Loopy Bradlines also come in different lengths ranging from one loop to five loops. This gives you the ability to string multiple strands of ribbon, charms, strings, etc. from these fun brads. To give the look of a large staple, I used two of the one loop bradlines with a piece of ribbon from the Baby Boy Trimmings. I then mounted one of the Stacked Stickers on a layer of coordinating cardstock colors and finished the card with a little doodling.

The Karen Foster Little Prince Scrapbook Kit and accessories brought back a lot of memories of when my boys were just babies. The kit made putting these pages together so easy to complete and something that my mother-in-law will treasure. I would like to mention that the stickers on the Clearly Stickers sheet were rather difficult to remove at first but if you remove the background first, then the stickers themselves pull off of the backing with ease.
If you have a new baby boy or grandson, then I encourage you get this precious collection – Little Prince Scrapbooking Kit and accessories from Karen Foster.
