I was one of the lucky ones who had today off for MLK, so I decided to take Friday off to make a 4-day weekend. Can you guess what I did?? If you guessed "scrapped", you'd be correct! A couple of friends and I booked some time at Archiver's (probably our last crop there....so SAD about my favorite store closing). We cropped all day Friday, left our stuff overnight and went back for a full day on Saturday. I got three 2-page layouts done (well the 3rd layout was close to done, and I finished it today). I'm going to show you this 3rd one first...and it's a cute one because it showcases my daughter when she was about 18 months old.
The sketch is for a single page, so the 2nd page is from my imagination. I started with the bokeh/confetti paper because that was my favorite in the pack, and I used it as my base for the photos. I layered a few of the other coordinating papers to place behind the photos and horizontal strip to make sure I liked the combination, and I misted both sides with CTMH Juniper re-inker. Here is the left page by itself.
After layering my various pieces, I distressed the edges of the pink striped paper, matted the orange-red polka dot paper and the photos with "Velvet" Bazzill cardstock, and then sewed around the horizontal bokeh/confetti papers in the center of the layouts.
I cut the "Cutie" with my Cameo, and used the alpha sticker sheet to spell "Pie" to complete my title.
For the small banner/embellishment cluster underneath the photos, I used two banner pieces and a few stickers from the collection. I finished it off with some baker's twine, a gem, and a sequin.
For the coordinating page, I continued the bokeh/confetti paper in the center (with the sewing) and layered similar papers to coordinate with the left side. I used a large circle cutter and cut a circle to layer behind as well. An additional banner, sequins, gems, and vellum stickers rounded out the layout.
I really hope you enjoyed my layout! If it inspires you, I'd love you to share it.
Enjoy, and may your day include chocolate and scrappiness!
