Me again, with another layout.
This one was submitted at Home and Scrapped for their May Color Palette & Sketch Challenge (May13-Melissa). You can find the challenge here.
Here's the color palette:
And the other "part" of the challenge is to use a sketch from Heather's sketches at Scrappy Sketches. I chose Mid Week Sketch 09-13.
And now for what I created:
Our daughter when she was ONE year old! What a fun time she had... and me too... taking tons of photos! How many of you remember "Smurfs?" I loved the Smurfs... and Lynn did too! And she was quite excited to get one for her birthday! :)
Paper: Colorbok, Other
Fiskars Corner Punch
EK Success Border Punch
Twine: Home Made
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Title Sticker: K&Co.
EK Success Flower Punch
Gems: Home Made
Shapes: Cut from templates
Here's a closer look at each block. I embossed them with the Birthday embossing folder. Twine was wrapped around the star and two smaller punched flowers were added with home made gems.
For each shape, I used an embossing tool to create the lines.. for some fun definition.
More twine was wrapped around the heart.
I used the corner punch on 3 of the corners.
The tips of the banners were curled up and twine was wrapped around the top banner and tied with a bow.
In the upper right corner I added a flower.
I used pop dots under the title sticker and tucked one of my home made flowers behind it. The edges of the title were distressed.
Here's a closer look at the cutest flower made with hot glue and colored with an old permanent marker and a metal stick pin was glued in the back.
The small hearts were punched and embossed around the edges.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
