Hello Scraptastic fans!
Today I am sharing a page created with the May kit - Destination Unknown! Now, this kit has a lot of travel related goodies in it - but it is not too travel themed which I love! I set down to scrap a page about my daughter and had no trouble pulling out goodies from this kit for my page!
I started off with the yummy coral cardstock from the kit and then added in the sweet heart bokeh paper from Lily Bee Design. I love the mix of pink with the yellow and went from there!
I layered a diecut from my cameo and then popped different circles of patterned paper from some scraps I had from the kit, and tucked them in behind the diecut shape. It was easy to find other items to co-ordinate for this page, like the cute yellow quote from American Crafts in the kit that I used for my title.
I also used some exclusive Scraptastic stamps on this page - the "hello sunshine" is perfect for so many reasons, but would be great for a travel theme too! Plus, I just LOVE these Heidi Swapp letters from the add-on that add just a little touch on top of the stamped image:
The American Crafts vellum worked great for layering on my page, but I also used it for the mega butterfly that filled a big space on my page! I just added a button in the centre with some twine:
I hope you have been enjoying all the work the DT has been sharing in May - and hope you are enjoying the sneaks for June too! I can't wait to get my June kits and get playing!
Yes I know it is a song by Paula Abdul! I heard it on the radio the other day and I started thinking about a layout. Well it is known that scrapbookers have weird minds and mine is always linking images and music to layouts or other projects. I started working on my layout using the Destination Unknown kit with the idea of OPPOSITES ATTRACT in mind. I noticed that I have used this design feature on other layouts as well. I love using two borders the are opposite of each other as main design features. Each border has one or several photos. I really love how it create a flow over the whole layout and helps highlight little details. Here is the layout I created using a photo of me as a child. I love it that I have pictures of me as a child and that they are digital. My father spent lots of time scanning them and I am so glad he did take the time to do it.
My challenge today is to be inspired by OPPOSITES ATTRACT. Use it as a title or as a design feature on your layout. Upload your project using the inlinkz feature and you might win $20 to spend in the Scraptastic Store!
Hace a happy Thursday.
Today I'm here to share my 4th layout using the May After the Storm kit and add-on along with the May stamp sets!
These photo's are of my daughter taken a couple years ago at a petting zoo. I picked these photos because they matched the papers so well. Bright and cheery just like she is!
I have a couple close-ups to share:
As you can see I have lots of layering and texture going on here! The stickers in the kit are what gave me the idea of the title. I mixed the colors for added interest. I machine stitched the butterflies to the layout. After looking at now it I wish I would have used a color thread instead of the white-oh well.
I made a little journaling block by printing on cardstock and using a stamp to bring attention to the journaling.
I got the idea for the flower by the flower on my daughter's shirt in the picture. I made the flower by cutting out some of the doily patterns from the pattern paper, crumbled them in my hand, inked the edges brown and used foam dots between the pieces. I slipped in a stick pin and added a sticker!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today, have a great day!!!
Carol here today sharing with you this fun layout using an old photo ;)
Sometimes for me, the layout comes before the photo. I loved this journal card in the Destination Unknown Add on and it automatically made me think of the song Wild Thing! So I pretty much had the idea for my layout but I didn't have a picture yet. For some reason these old photo's were in a huge stash of random photo's that I have in one of my scrapbook drawers. As soon as I saw it I knew it was the one, and it couldn't have been more perfect. I am an only girl in a family of 6 boys! I was the princess and one year my mom made me this ballerina costume for Halloween and I'm not sure how many years I wore it but it gets pretty small! All my brothers dressed up as some kind of monster, of course. So this pic cracks me up....it's like beauty and the beasts!!! Hahaa ;)
With the awesome Lily Bee PP as my background I kept the whole thing pretty simple.
Those large Heidi Swapp letters are perfect and I pulled a couple of asterisks from the pink thicker pack to adorn them.
A few layers, some stitching and that's about it. Fun and simple.
