As I mentioned last week, I’ve been getting back into scrapbooking recently and so I’m hoping to be able to share with you some ideas for how to use your different Stampin’ Up! supplies to make some fun layouts. So, today is week 2 of Scrapbooking Sunday and stick around to the bottom of the post for my Superbowl Special!
But first, can I share with you some photos of my littlest stamper?
This layout was based on a sketch by my friend Charity Becker. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of collaging photos into one single block before, but I love the look. And it was perfect for me to put together those multiple “sleeping baby” pictures from when we were still in the hospital after Caitlin was born. Plus it was the perfect opportunity for me to pull out the Love Impressions specialty paper I scored from the Clearance Rack!
Since the sketch itself was pretty simple, I had fun pulling out some of my new toys and adding some fun touches. First up…. Framelits labels!
Since you get 6 different sizes of the same shape, I could make 3 different sized but coordinating labels for the bubble border at the top of my pictures. Plus, I LOVE the fact that you can see what exactly you are cutting out with your framelit and so I could center the grey “LOVE” where I wanted when I went to cut it out. And just to keep it fun, I used my embossing folders on two of the labels.
And then to balance the bottom of my pictures, I ran a row of the Blushing Bride pleated ribbon. I really don’t think I can get enough of this ribbon! Color in the XOXO from the designer paper with my waterbrush for a subtitle. And then one of my favorite touches – I pierced holes at the corners of my photo frame and ran Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine to make a subtle outline of my centerpiece. It was so easy and really made a bigger impact than I expected for such a small amount of material.
Do you love this stuff as much I do? So much fun to use! Ready for a special to help you add these to your stash for a deal?
