6×6 Scrapbook Page Layout {Welcome Neighbor DSP & Sweet Pea Stitched Felt}

It’s been ages since I’ve made a scrapbook page. I don’t normally make 6×6 Scrapbook Page Layouts, but I had this picture of my daughter on my desk, then I saw this cute patterned paper from Welcome Neighbor, and I just went from there. Since the page is small, I wanted the focus to be on the photo.

The 4″x4″ photo is layered onto a 4 1/4″ square of Old Olive card stock. I then took a 4 1/4″ x 2″ strip of Old Olive and used the Scallop Trim Border Punch to make the scalloped edge, tucking it under the Old Olive photo mat.

In the upper corner, I added Sweet Pea Stitched Felt flowers and leaves, layering them with Glue Dots and attaching it to the page with a large Glue Dot. It gives the page a pop of color and since she’s looking up in that direction in the picture, it was a good place to put the flower.

I kept journaling to a minimum so the focus would be on the picture. The sentiment “Everything grows with love” is from Love Matters (retired–but has many great sayings in handwriting style font). I inked up the different parts of the stamp using the Chocolate Chip and Rose Red Markers, then stamped it onto Very Vanilla using the Stamp-a-majig to get a 2 line setup.

Next, I punched out the Very Vanilla card stock using the Curly Label Punch and sponged the edges using a mixture of Close to Cocoa Reinker and Champagne Shimmer Paint. I just add a drop of Reinker and a drop of Shimmer Paint into an old brad or button container, dip a Sponge Dauber in, and start sponging. This combo makes a really nice Bronze colored shimmery ink, which goes great with the sepia tones in the picture. I attached it to the page using Stampin Dimensionals.

That’s it–pretty simple. I think I like the 6″x 6″ size page for 1 photo layouts. I will be trying more 6″x6″ pages to see what other types of layouts work best. Thanks for stopping by today!

Another Easter Card {Good Egg Pastel Version}

Sorry to keep bombarding you with this little chick image but it’s so cute I couldn’t stop myself from using it in almost every Easter card I made this year. I found the stamp and the sentiment a few weeks ago as they were calling my name from the bin they were in at the store. You can see what else I’ve made with them here.

The card base is Gina K Luxury white base weight, layered with a So Saffron striped paper from Welcome Neighbor DSP paper pack. I stamped the chick/egg in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White paper and colored the image with my Aquapainter and ink pads for a soft watercolor effect.

The chick was “fluffed up” using Martha Stewart Flocking Powder in White. I applied 2 Way Glue all over the chick, then added the Flocking Powder. It’s really somewhat translucent, and just lets whatever color is underneath still show through the fluff.

I matted the image on Sage Shadow card stock, and stamped the sentiment in Sage Shadow ink. Then, using the Cropadile, I punched four holes along the bottom and added Circle Rhinestone Brads in shades of light blue and yellow. That was adhered to the base using Stampin Dimensionals.

Bitty Birthday Card

As part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion this year, certain stamp sets from the main catalog are available to choose from, free with $50 purchase. This set, Bitty Birthday is one of them.

This card is for a boy, so I tried to keep the colors boyish (always a challenge for me).  The card base is Old Olive, layered with Dusty Durango textured card stock and Welcome Neighbor DSP. I stamped the cake twice on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the images with Copic Markers. Then, I cut one cake apart and popped it up on top of the bottom image using Stampin Dimensionals.

I added some Supernova Orange Fine Glitter to the candles using my MS fine tip glue pen. The image layer is paper pierced around the edges and matted on Dusty Durango with Stampin Dimensionals.

The greeting is from On Your Birthday, stamped in Basic Gray ink on whisper white. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and layered it onto the Modern Label Punch using Dusty Durango.
