Welcome one and all to my little world! What will you find here, you ask? Well, you will definitely see a lot having to do with my favorite hobby - scrapbooking (both traditional & digital) and paper crafts. I also like to post tidbits about my life every once in a while to keep it "personal." The biggest stars in my world are my son, William, and my hubby (and biggest fan), David! I hope you enjoy it here, and please feel free to become a follower (Click "Follow this Blog" below to the right!). I'm constantly adding new ideas, great deals I may find on craft goodies and you may even run into a tutorial every now and then! Happy Blogging! :o) ~Vicky Jo

First Haircut LO

I really enjoyed doing this LO documenting William's first haircut that I gave him! I used the "My Guy" page kit from Pebbles, Inc. and kept a lock of his hair in a 3L clear envelope. For the title, I painted some raw paper studio chipboard with my mm paints for "1st" and used AC stickles for "haircut."

The journaling is just a simple text box from MS Word with a background color of navy and white font. I often forget I can use this technique!

I loved adding this touch - We R Memory Keepers grommets with some ribbon from the kit weaved through.

  1. I am loving this LO. G still hasn't had her first haircut yet, but I'm definitely saving the 3m envelope idea. I love the grommet/ribbon technique, you are sure to see that again from me soon. Oh and I was wondering how you printed the white text. Thanks for adding the explanation!
