Using the ScrapBoss and the Themed Baby stencil emboss two baby rattles and one baby buggy onto Navy Splatter cardstock. The Splatter side of the cardstock should face up. Tape the edges of your cardstock to make sure it stays in place while embossing. (See diagram A)Tip; if you rub the back of the cardstock with wax paper the stylus will glide more easily when embossing.


Once you have embossed all of the designs turn the stencil over and position it over the design for coloring.


To Color tap the stencil dauber onto the inkpad then tap it lightly onto the design. The ink is wet so tap lightly and be careful not to saturate the embossed area. (See diagram B)


Color all designs as shown in the page example. Once all areas are colored set the embossed design aside to dry.


Trim 3 3/4” off the left side of the Narratives “Baby” sheet. Center and adhere it to a 12” x 12” sheet of Periwinkle cardstock. See page example. Tip; If you adhere it in the middle where the adhesive could be hidden beneath the photo frame it will look nicer.


Using the Shape Cutter and the Super Sized Rectangle templates cut the following. Navy Splatter outside of the #4 template, (NOTE: Position the template in the corner of the page so that you have enough room to cut the last piece out of the same page, see diagram) Navy Plaid outside of the #3 template, Navy Gingham the outside of #2 template, Periwinkle inside of the #4 template and Navy Spatter inside of the #2 template.


Layer and adhere the frames together as shown in the page example.


Center and adhere the photo to the photo frame then center and adhere the frame to the page as shown in page example.


To create the Title box cut a 3 1/2” x 1 3/4” piece of Navy blue cardstock. Center the Baby Boy Chrystalz onto the cardstock and adhere with Pewter mini square brads. Center and adhere the title box under the photo frame.


Using a Razor Knife or Micro-tip scissors cut out the embossed designs leaving a slight border.


Adhere the cut outs to the left side of the page with Mini Pop Dots. (See page example)


Complete page by putting the Baby’s name on the baby buggy with a white gel pen.
