Flowers for my baby boys!

Hi my dear Friends,
It's Angela today to show you a beautiful Robin's Nest flowers paper for a boy scrapbook layout.
Yes, because who says that flowers paper has to be for a girly page only?

Ciao amici cari,
Sono Angela e vorrei mostrarvi una delicata carta fiorata di Robin's Nest usata per un layout da maschietto.
Sì perché, chi dice che i fiori devono per forza essere solo per le femmine? 

Picture Perfect Layout The Robin's Nest

The delicate blue of the flowers of this paper fits perfectly my sweet little boys picture. And it fits my boy shirt too!!

L'azzurrino dei fiori di questa carta lo trovavo perfetto per questa foto dei miei bimbi. E si accostava anche perfettamente con la maglietta del piccolo!!

I decided to try my new Silhouette Cameo and I downloaded this fun title from PaperIssue.
I cut it from a white piece of cardstock, then I colored it with watercolors.

Ho deciso di provare la mia nuova Silhouette Cameo e così ho scaricato questo simpatico titolo da PaperIssue.
L'ho ritagliato su un cartoncino bianco, poi colorato con gli acquerelli.

A few embellisments here and there and of course my adorable, lovely Dew Drops. You know, I cannot consider a layout finished without them!

Alcuni abbellimenti qua e la e le mie adorabili Dew Drops sono stati sufficienti per decorare la pagina. Ormai lo sapete, non posso considerare finito un layout senza averle usate!

I also framed part of the page with a dark blue paper to make the title pop.
To push the layout a step further, I drew all around the paper and the title too using a fine black liner.

Ho poi incollato un cartoncino di un bel blu cobalto per incorniciare il layout, in modo che il titolo risaltasse di più.
Ancora, ho disegnato una linea sottile tutt'attorno ai fogli ed alle frasi con un pennarello sottile nero.

Spero che questa pagina vi piaccia, fatemi sapere e grazie della visita.

It's Fun To Feed The Little Baby Ducklings!

Tracy here today and I've got a layout about my granddaughter's class trip to feed the ducks. Aren't the little hats they made super cute!

Robin's Nest Products

I started with the Brown on Brown Glitter Cardstock for my background. I cut a circle out of the Bunny Cardstock and used the reverse side and cut down the Rubber Duckies Glitter Cardstock and rounded the corners. 
I wanted to bring out some more of the colors of the photos so I decided to mat the photos using the Pink Glittered Leopard Cardstock.

Next, I cut some little duck feet on my Cricut and placed them along the top of the page right over the Rubber Duckies Glitter Cardstock.

And since there just wasn't enough bling with all the glittered cardstock I used, I decided to make a few small flower shapes using some of the Diamond Dew Drops and the Mini Dew Drops

Thanks for stopping by!

Crafting for Good - a sweet & special craft for the NICU

Hello and welcome to the blog today.  Shelly here sharing a special project I created for our local hospital's NICU (neonatal intensive care unit).

My sister volunteers at the NICU and one the tasks is to create "crib cards" for the babies in the unit. Crib cards are simply cards that list baby name, birth date, and birth stats - they are put in a plastic protector and hung on the outside of crib.  The crib cards made by the volunteers are fun & fanciful - creating a little bit of cheer in a stressful situation.

My sister mentioned that the craft supplies provided were a little.... lacking... so I immediately decided to create some crib cards to donate, along with a box of fun crafting supplies.

To create these crib cards I used:

Boy Card:

Getaway Glitter Cardstock (cut to 5 x 7)
Khaki Glitter Cardstock (cut to 4 x 6)
Dino Rub Ons
Dew Drops - assorted sizes

Girl Card:

Princess Glitter Cardstock
Glitter Crown Cardstock
Baby Girls - Little Friends
Gerber Cardstock Sticker (cut in half)
Dew Drops - assorted sizes

For Both:

White Cardstock (2 - cut to 3 x 5)
Ink (for edging paper)


  • Ink all edges of cut cardstock
  • Layer and glue your cardstock pieces
  • Layer and glue your embellishments

  • I applied the rub-ons to white cardstock, cut out and attached pop dots for some added dimension

A pretty simple project, but one that will bring a smile to a worried parent's face.  I plan on creating at least half dozen completed cards to drop off with craft supplies.

Hope you are inspired to craft for the good!

Have a creative weekend!!

Happy Birthday Card

Hi everyone!!
Ciao a tutti!!

Today is the 24th of March and I think that is a good idea showing you this Happy Birthday Card. I hope you enjoy it.
Oggi è il 24 Marzo e credo sia una bella idea mostrarvi questa Card di Buon Compleanno. Spero vi piaccia.

I decided to use these three Cardstock for this project:
Ho deciso di usare questi tre  cartoncini per questo progetto:
Rosy ChevronGlitter Discovery Girl

I created the structure of the card with the Valentine Stripe Cardstock. I also cut two rectangles by the Glitter Discovery Girl Cardstock. I stuck one on the front size, with that tiny flowers in the front, and one on the other size.
Ho creato la struttura della card con il cartoncino Valentine Stripe. Ho anche tagliato due rettangoli dal cartoncino Glitter Discovery Girl. Ne ho attaccato uno da un lato, con i fiorellini sul fronte, e uno dall'altro verso.

Then I pasted on the card another rectangle cut by the back of Valentine Stripe Cardstock, on which I wrote "Happy Birthday" using the Alpha Pink Glitter Stickers. I also this wonderful card with music sheet and bees and a Doillie.
Poi ho incollato un altro pezzo del retro del cartoncino Valentine Stripe, su cui ho scritto "Happy Birthday" con l'alfabeto glitterato rosa. E anche questo bellissimo con lo spartito e le api e una margherita.

Finally I cut a lot of roses by the Rosy Chevron Cardstock and I stuck them on the edge of the Glitter Discovery Girl Cardstock. Of course, I also used four Diamond Dew Drops (white and pale pink).
Infine ho tagliato un sacco di piccole rose dal cartoncino Rosy Chevron e le ho incollate lungo il margine del cartoncino Glitter Discovery Girl. Ovviamente ho anche usato quattro Diamond Dew Drops (bianco latte e rosa pallido).

And here are some closer pictures for you:

Bev here today at Robin's Nest. I am sharing 2 really cute Easter Cards. The papers available with Easter themes and colours make creating so much fun and easy. Add a few accents and your done. Hope these inspire you to create some too. The kids and grandkids will love them.

Supply List
Robin's Nest Products
Papers: Green Butterflies, Bunny Limoncello Glitter Cardstock
Accents: dew drops, Silver arch shell
Other: ink, stamp, cardstock, variegated cardstock, image

Up first I grabbed these papers and an Easter image which I matted.

For this card I grabbed the lemon yellow glitter cardstock and cut the pieces and strips to start the background. The print bunnies is matted with the reverse side of the paper with fun stripes.

The matted print is added to the main base.

Now it was time to add some accents to the base cards. Above the yellow one has added stripe stripes, dew drops and sentiments ink stamped.

How to Make Fun Little Girl's Layouts for March

Good Morning, Penny here to show you how to make fun little girl's March layout.

So this is a layout of my granddaughter Madison. When she was smaller she would love to pose for our pretend "modeling photo shoots". We took ton's of photo's of her at that age, just because she loved posing, and having fun. Now as she get's older, it's getting harder, and harder to get her in front of the camera, and I won't even talk about how hard it is to photograph my grandson now that he is a teen.

So to make this layout I started with some fabulous Robin's Nest Scrapbooking supplies

Kiwi Sorbet cardstock - I loved that this cardstock almost matched her outfit colors exactly, so that is what I choose for my background sheet..

Robins-Egg-Glitter-Cardstock - This cardstock was also a great match, and it is speckled throughout with glitter although it doesn't show up in the photograph.

Diamond-Dew-Drops and Dew-Drops-Originals - I used both of these all over this layout, and they were a blast to work with. I'd have to say these are one of my favorite Robin's Nest products.

Alpha-Glitter-Stickers -You can see these pictured here on my title in the word "Girl".  They have ton's of glitter on them, and I found them very easy to line up. 

Here are more samples of how I decorated the accents with dew drops, and fun girly things.

In the following sample I don't know what I would have done without the Best Glue Ever and the Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect.  This glue is perfect for things like this, and the Embellie Gellie helped me to position the Dew Drops perfectly.

So this is our fun girl's March layout, and photo shoot. Get your camera, and get those photos quickly while they are still small enough to let you!

Till nest time Happy Scrapping! Love Penny

A wonderful use of a beautiful tag

Colleen here with a wonderful use of a beautiful tag.  I love to make tags so decided to make a gift tag.  Something so very easy and smart to create.

I started with Kiwi Sobert Glitter Cardstock and a sizzix die to cut out two tags.  I then used a piece of an old doily and molding paste to add some texture to the tag.

I also added some ribbon up at the top and put some molding paste over that.
I glued only the bottom portion of the 2nd tag onto the back of the tag.  I cut off the top part of the tag so that it makes a great pocket to put a little gift or gift card in.

I used a rub-on down in the lower left corner from the Time Flies Rub On package.  I used one of doilies from the Doillie Die Cuts and cut out the clock from the one of the cards from the  Rusty Rose Cards set.  The butterfly was made cutting 2 butterflies from a punch and then used some Transfer Foils from ScraPerfect.  The foils are so easy to use and add a bit of color to the butterflies.  I finished the butterfly off with a Fall Foilige Tear Drop  and a brown dew drop from the Black Forest Mini Dew Drop.  

Lastly I added some ribbon and put green diamond drew drops from the Jolly Dew Drops package on the front and back of each ribbon.

I thank you for stopping by and don't forget to head on over to the Robin's Store to see some of the other awesome products.
