All-Star Baseball 2 Page Scrapbook Layout Made With Cricut Sports Mania

Here's a layout from Landon's scrapbook.  Since I find baseball clothing on little babies just adorable I had Landon wear a baseball outfit for his 3 month pictures, and I found some stars and stripes baseball scrapbook paper that coordinated perfectly.

I used the Sports Mania cricut cartridge to cut out the "All Star" and "Play Ball" and the Plantin School cartrige for "our little" and "3 months".  And I cut the baseball and star embellishments out of scrapbook paper.  This was a very fast layout and only took less then 20 minutes to throw together.

Thanks for reading today's post!

DIY Infant Carrier Cover - Perfect for Shielding Baby

Here's an easy DIY sewing project I did for my little Austin -- an infant carrier cover.  These covers work great from shielding the baby from the bright sun/lights and even protects the babies from exposure to germs when out and about.  I followed this tutorial that I used over at the blog Make-It-Do.

I just fell in love with this Michael Miller fabric from the Elephant Walk line that I purchased from the Quilt Hause here in New Braunfels.  I used the "Zoology-dirt" fabric for the outside and "Dumb Dot" for the outside and for contrast on the outside.  If you are making this cover for a little girl, they have this same adorable fabric in pink and purple tones too!

And of course, I just couldn't help but add a picture to show off my adorable little baby.  Here is Austin enjoying a nap in his infant carrier with his nice hand-made cover.
