Don't miss my giveaway on this post!
Today I've got a few layouts I made for Memorable Seasons using Simple Stories Sea to Shining Sea line:
First up I did a sketch challenge from a 2 page Nuts About Sketches sketch #320. Here's the sketch:
I used the left side but switched it up a bit for my needs:
I had a lot of fun using washi tape as a banner on the ribbon they sent with the kit. I even found that metal star on my desk and added it to the banner. The Stars & Stripes card is cut from the Elements paper then I added the word stickers along with stars and circles I cut from other papers in the kit.
Next up is the Member of the Month lift challenge:
June's Member was Susan Anhern. She has many wonderful layouts to choose from in the gallery. What I noticed is that she does some beautiful journaling. So I did my best to get some heartfelt journaling on this layout:
I also used the cut out portion of the USA card to mist my background, then hung the USA letters from my banner paper at the top.
My 2nd challenge was a Theme challenge. I chose to scrap something Sweet:
Linking this lo to Paper Issues Say Cheese
This is my youngest using his toes to help him eat some taffy. He's such a fun little guy and I loved the title that popped into mind, Taffy Toes. I used the charcoal cs as my background then added some pattern paper and bunched a barcode strip with my star border punch to added along the pp. Then I had some cute stars to sprinkle on my layout. Lots of inking and some stickles dots finishes it up.
My last challenge was to Distress, any way you choose:
I used the Ahoy pp for my background and dripped splashes of blue dylusions on it. Then used the Original card from the Elements paper above and below my photos. I fussy cut around "Original" to layer it over the bottom of my photos. I did a lot of scissor distressing, ink and even used an emery-board to distress the edges of my photos.
I had a lot of fun with this kit!
