Ugh, sometimes I hate WordPress because it cuts off my images… Grrr. Anyway, hey! I’m here today with a free double 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbooking sketch. Measurements included on the pic, everything is a nice round number. :) Hope you can use it! Here is the video to go with it.
Rocking and singing babies to sleep and waiting until it was safe to sneak out. <3
Love at First Bite
Layout: Love You to the Moon
For this layout, I used the Simple Stories Hello, Baby collection. I bought the Simply Basics pack (love love LOVE that they do this, a pack of B sides, yes please!) and one cut apart sheet. So for $7, I have the equivalent of a collection pack, as far as I’m concerned. I can get several layouts and cards with the look of the collection, and not shell out the $20+ they want for their collection packs. I did add in a sheet of metallic gold heart vellum from We R Memory Keepers, and of course, my go to white Bazzill cardstock for the foundation.
I stacked a lot of papers, and distressed the edges of every piece for a bit of a shabby chic feel.
I stamped and heat embossed (pale pink and metallic gold) a ton of tiny stars and hearts from Ali Edwards’ baby stamp set, and scattered bling amidst them, too. Some Twinkling H20s along the edge and some jute and heart snaps tied it all together.
Layout: Who, Me?
Thanks for the heads up, Kay–hopefully this fixed it?
Hahaha! I found the other layout. All the papers are Echo Park, and I just used the sticker sheet from the same collection, my punches, and some twine to dress up the layout a bit.
Cut my title block too big and had to get creative… Probably should have just gotten rid of the frame…
TFL! Love that I have captured both of these stories. Such cuties.
One of my last layouts created at Archiver’s in their crop room (sigh…I will miss them!)… A friend’s birth announcement for their third child.
Scattered clear sequins (may be hard to see,but look close, they’re there!) with pink and clear bling in a diagonal, leading the eye from the bottom right, from title to photo. Used SNAP! cards, a fun kraft envelope, an acetate monogram, floss and ribbon, and felt hearts for layering. TFL!
LO: Cozy In Your Little Nest
Again, NOT trying to say anything! These are Amy B’s ultrasound pics. :-) (And as an aside–whoa, nelly, we have a deck? I haven’t seen it all dry and not covered in snow for awhile…)
This was another layout for the same scraplift challenge I mentioned in my previous layout post, but in an earlier month. I can’t take credit for the title–a peep came up with it, and I thought it was great… (Get it, because of our last name? And then I used the bird house and feathers…? I’m nothing if not punny! ;-) )
Used a Hambly 12×12 acetate sheet for the background, then spattered neon acrylic paints across the backside. Floated a 10×10 square asymmetrically on the background, and added neon feathers and sequins. (Hey, neon was a fleeting re-tread trend, had to get in probably the ONLY layout I’ll do with it.) Probably should have found a way to get the HA neon inks for the stamping and title, but oh, well.
