13th April - Numbers

Todays challenge is all about numbers - its a year of big Birthdays this year in my family, one of them being mine and it just so happens to be my nephews first Birthday today too so todays challenge is to create a layout including numbers, whether its your title, journaling or both would be even better!

This challenge falls on my nephews first Birthday so it had to be a page about him! I used all my numbers for his date of birth and weight, its great for using up your left over Thicker numbers!


My youngest son (11 YO) has a crush on soft guns ATM. I find the tiny plastic bullets all over the house - so annoying. I hope the crush is over soon...

From stamping and stickers to chipboard and journaling bits, I had so much fun thinking of all the ways to tie numbers into my design this week.  I really wanted to design a page around my kiddos' birthdays being 07/07, 11/01, and 02/02, being as they each ended up with their own personal lucky number, but I have very few digital baby pics of my oldest and haven't yet printed many of my youngest.  So, it'll have to wait for another occasion.  In the end, I decided to scrap a couple pics of my oldest, celebrating his first double-digit birthday last summer.

For my layout I focused on my niece's rainbow themed birthday.  I've been searching for an excuse to use my wood veneer numbers, so I'm glad I finally got the chance!!

This challenge was a bit of struggle for me, and I had to work a bit to make it happen.
But the title says 365 days, 52 weeks, 12 months... I´m a mum every day of the year.
I´ve used loads of gesso, and dylusion sprays on my page, and the die cuts are cut out with my silhouette Cameo.

My page is all about counting numbers. The journaling is in swedish and says: "Mom, I do not have to start school. I already know how to count to 100."

I used Maggie Holmes Styleboard collection from Crate Paper, Thickers from American Crafts and stamps from Kaisercraft for this page.
I sprayed Gesso onto of the numbers and then I used different mists. 


As soon as I heard the challenge, I knew I wanted to create a project that highlighted reasons why I love my husband. I began playing around with some design ideas for a layout but, in the end, decided a mini album would be fun. I used 4x6 photo sleeves from American Crafts as the base of my album, creating several 4x6 inserts on cardstock. Then I tied the whole thing together (literally) with some purple ribbon.

Happy scrapping!
