The collection I used was Be Different by Fancy Pants. It was perfect for the sketch and the subject of my photos. This was our son, and my nephew, at my aunts surprise wedding last June. She told us it was a retirement party, but some of us guessed better 🙂 The journalling is hidden on the tab that says cousins…pull it up and voila!
I am so excited to be sharing my first layout for the ScrapMuch? design team. Laura also has the best sketches, and I’m honored to be part of a team showing them off. Here is the first sketch I was given to work with:
And here is my take:
I’ve had these pictures sitting on my desk for years, and finally found the perfect sketch to use to get them down. The sketch is by Laura Whitaker for the ScrapMuch? challenge blog. She does the most awesome sketches.
Despite the fact that I love how this came out, it got off to a VERY rough start. Ask my friend Stacia…I tried a million combination before I pulled out my Studio Calico kits and started digging around. When it finally came together it went down super fast.
The papers and embellishments are all from various Studio Calico kits, and I got so into mixing and matching I couldn’t even tell you which ones. I know all of mine are a year old so it’s all older collection stuff.
The stamps are from a 2013 Heidi Swapp set I recently picked up on clearance at Michael’s. I stamped with my Avery Elle Pigment Ink Pad in AquaMarine. I liked the tone on tone effect so that the stamping added something, but wasn’t “in your face.” so to speak. I bought this ink pad on a whim, knowing pigment inks take longer to dry, and I’m very happy with it. It stamps very nice/even and the color stays try to what’s on the pad. I’ll definitely be looking for more.
The heart and wow triangles were transparencies in the kits, but I created the backgrounds for them with watercolors. I’ve had my eye on this Artist Loft set and when it went 40% off at Michael’s I picked it up. Worked like a charm for this application, and I hope to try to incorporate it more often.
Well, I think that’s enough description for now…are you bored yet 🙂 Even though this isn’t my normal style I’m just in love with how it came out! Until next time…Keep Scrapping!
Welcome to my second reveal for Lasting Memories. This go-round we were challenged to create a layout about a Life Lesson.
I pulled out my Carta Bella Boy Oh Boy goodies and the sketch from ScrapMuch? to get started. I stuck really close to the sketch except for changing to use three photos instead of two. I didn’t have the correct red paper to mat my photos, but I had the perfect red washi tape. I cut mats the size I needed and covered the edges with the tape…worked perfectly!
The life lesson that I choose to highlight was our son learning some “Guy Stuff.” My hubby had his tools out to do something around the house right around when our son turned one. M went right over to the tools and started digging in the box and turning the handles…no one had to tell him it way guy stuff!
Sorry I’ve been so quiet lately, but we’ve been going through a kitchen re-do and the house looks like a bomb went off! Leave me a comment if you want to see the new kitchen, and until next time…Keep Scrappin!
