Thanks for joining me today while I share my newest layout created off the sketch from GrandDiva’s Creative Corner. It was originally a two page sketch, but I only used the left hand side. I also used the the mood board from Creating with Paper & More. The mood board had a wood sign in it inspiring the wood grain paper I used for my background. It also had a child blowing snow that looked like stars…hence the star accents I used around my page. Lastly, the board had a deer in the left corner. My husband is an avid hunter so it inspired me to scrap about his recent achievement at work.
Hey Crafty Friends! I have a quick post today, have a pounding headache, of a layout I got finished this week. I started with the sketch from GrandDiva’s Creative Corner and the word art challenge at Rochelle Spears blog.
For the word art challenge my inspiration words were family, thankful and blessings. I am blessed by this little girl daily and thankful for the time I’m getting to spend home with her. The photos are the first I took that I looked at her and went…she’s not a baby anymore 🙁
The papers and embellishments on this layout came from the Felicity Jane Willow kit. I’m really trying to get that one killed this month. You’ll see where I have two pieces of white cardstock…I tried adding mist and hated it. I had used liquid adhesive on my other papers so my undu wasn’t working so that was my solution.
Okay – I’m off to lay down. Until next time…stay crafty!
Last, but certainly not least, I went with Rochelle Spear’s challenge of using twine or ribbon on your layout. I had a ton of both these items in my stash, but never really use them so this was perfect for me.
I also wanted to include the comments that were posted when his job put the achievement on their wall. I didn’t want to include four full size photos on the page, and I didn’t want to shrink the photo of him down so I used some flip flaps from Close To My Heart to fit them all in.
Thanks for bearing with me for my super long post. Hope you love the layout.
Being home this week I managed to get a layout done last night! I used the sketch from GrandDiva’s Creative Corner. Even though I made a few adjustments if you go to her site I think you can see the sketch was used fairly closely.
The paper is from Echo Park’s That’s My Boy collection. I’ve saving that paper with the football field on it for something special. Since these are pictures of the Super Bowl I thought it was the perfect time to pull it out. The modeling paste was left white and put through a Tim Holtz stencil. I believe this one was just called something like splatters.
Well – off to get more cookies in the oven…until next time!
