I did manage to get some scrapbooking done before I left on holidays though, for the Let's Scrap Design Team. So let's catch up and share them today:
Initially I wanted to use Washi tape for this layout (doesn't it just scream Washi?!), but since I pre-prepped these photos and they didn't seem to fit with any of my Washi stock, I went with layering instead. This worked out well as I used up much of my Superhero paper from CTMH! A very busy and bold layout, but suits my busy and bold goofball of a son :-)
The superhero stickers are mainly Recollections, but I also used a couple SMASH tabs I'd had for quite awhile.
My version, which I split into two single layouts that work together - one of my DD getting makeup for her birthday, and the other of my two kids "posing" for a "nice" photo together!
The base paper for the above pages was from Sandylion - from a large stack I got from the outlet store in Toronto two years ago - it was nice to finally use it and it went really well with Bo Bunny's Surprise papers! No "surprise" here that I like bold,, bright colours in my layouts!!
Love this sketch!! I will use this one again for sure. Decided to flip it to suit my photos here though:
Again I used up some old supplies (I'm on a mission!), and used Cosmo Cricket papers and quotes here. Used the numbers down the side of the layout as embellishment - great way to use up all those extra numbers I've got from my LARGE supply of Thickers!!
And who doesn't love a good Tim Holtz Distress Inks SPLAT here and there to add some punch to your page?!! Thought it mixed well with the sand in the photos :-)
Lastly is this week's card sketch, 8-21-13 that I got home just in time to whip together! Thank you Bella Blvd for having such awesome product to work with in a hurry!!
Kraft cardstock is CTMH; wooden button is Prima; black gems are Queen & Co.; and twine is unknown. Love how cheerful this card is, and that it's generic so I can send it to anyone for any reason :-)
Ok, so that's a lot to share in one post so I'll sign off for now!! Be back soon with a post on Vision Boards though - have you heard of these??
