Little Face

Oh how I do so love this little face ...

Each photo represents a week in Dylan's first year of life from a few hours old (top left) to celebrating his first birthday (bottom right). I love seeing them all together and how much has changed and how much has stayed the same. 

I've been working on this page off and on for months.  Picking the photos and arranging them in the template was the easy part.  I was slow piecing the rest together.  The final detail - the stitching - came earlier this week.  I felt like the page was missing something.  I decided to use my sewing machine to sew a frame around the photos.  I intentionally did not make straight lines - I think it's more fun and has more character with a little slant to it.

Supplies: Recollections kraft paper; Déjà Views sticker; Making Memories date stamp & washer; StazOn black ink; Stampin' Up cardstock; Paislee Press template; patterned papers; Little Yellow Bicycle brad; Heidi Swapp acrylic heart; staples; brown thread.


  1. Oh my gosh I LOVE this!! So sweet! I may have to use this idea for a page when Ella turns 1!

  2. I love this idea and how you laid it out. Such a sweet little face.

  3. That came out awesome, Sarah! Love the stitching! Going to have to try it for Hayes.

  4. That is such a great idea. Wish I had thought of that years ago

  5. What a wonderful idea to put a whole year in the life of Dylan on one page! I agree. That's such a sweet face and such a delightful little boy to boot! Hugs to you both.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them all. :)
