My first layout includes lots of images I hand cut out of the patten paper as well as some chipboard stickers. I really like that some of the papers in this kit are bright and fun while others offer a more vintage and softer look. Here I have a couple of photos of Dylan I took while he played in front of an old building across the street from Crayola Factory last month. He was so excited so I titled the page Ready 2 Play.
I used white paint to ink the edges of the blue pattern paper, corrugated cardboard to mat the photo and some machine stitching.
Next, I scrapped a photo of Emily and a friend at a recent playdate. They were enjoying the pool and sunshine. I just love their toothless grins! As usual, I did lots of machine stitching and distressing to create texture.
A tutorial on altering corrugated cardboard for the circle in the background will follow shortly. I also used puffy paint on the flower for an added touch.
For my next layout I used the die cut paper included in the kit along with Glimmer Mist in Sun Sisters. I seem to be reaching for that color very often lately, so sunny and bright! I love polka dots and this red pattern paper was just perfect for these photos of Emily munching on juicy watermelon.
I used a large EK Success border punch for the scallop borders, hand stitching and lots of paper distressing.
My last layout uses muted colors in the kit. I love this photo of my kids feeding the ducks, so serene! I really loved the Simple Stories papers and embellishments included in this kit, the perfect combination of vintage and soft.
My did some really light masking using a punched paper border and a bit of layering.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have fun scrapping!
