After a fun weekend with the Live Chat about the scoop on the Starter Kit and perks of being a demonstrator (if you missed it, here is the recording) and then a great card class, then finally working on details for running my first Crafty Escape Weekend in June! So much fun and exciting stuff!
But now with it being Monday, I realized that there are only 2 more days of Sale-a-Bration & of the Paper Pumpkin Subscription sale!
(PS – for those of you who have been thinking of joining my Fun n’ Crafty group, that means tomorrow is the last day to get the bonus items or project kit!)
I still have lots of projects I wanted to share, so first up is this fun scrapbook layout I did recently using the Best Year Ever designer paper that you can get free with Sale-a-Bration:
I loved the goofy and sweet faces that Caitlin was making at lunch while we were at Legoland and so while I didn’t have a “story” behind the pictures, I knew I wanted to have them for our trip album. And as I started thinking about what I wanted to use for my layout, I realized the light and bright colors in the Best Year Ever designer paper would be the perfect backdrop for my sweet girl!
I wanted the pictures to be the focal point, so I didn’t do a ton of embellishing, but I made sure to add a few spots of fun, starting with a couple flowers using the Bloom For You stamp!
It is a single flower stamp, but the cool thing is it works with two different stamps – the Fun Flower punch and the 7/8” scallop circle punch. So you can do things like stamp the flower in one color and punch out and then stamp in a second color and punch out with the 7/8” scallop circle punch and layer it on top!
Its also really subtle, but I wanted to do something else and so I added some Neutrals Candy Dots in Soft Suede onto the Soft Suede cardstock. It’s a little touch but it works!
For my journalling, I created a block with white cardstock and then stamped my sentiment from the Painted Petals stamp set…. don’t you love that saying? And then wrote my thoughts with a matching Stampin’ Write marker – the Hello Honey marker.
This layout goes together quickly and highlights your pictures so that they stand out and can make you smile each time you flip through your album!
