Here is my last layout created for My Creative Scrapbook, using their main kit this month. I made a tutorial to go along with it that I will be sharing here next. I also have some exciting news about a Guest Designer spot I have at the moment & will be sharing that with you next week!
I try to ensure that I never 'leave anyone out' when I scrapbook. I would hate for any of my kids to think that I was favouring or disregarding them, so I made sure to include a photo of each one of them in my kit club creations this month.
This is my eldest son Jack. I printed out the photographs with a vignette that matched the colour of the base paper, that I reserved from the kit especially for this page.
I used my dymo to journal & lots of little bits of the Prima packaging for my layers.
I cut the penant flag out of the Prima packaging too & attached it with a staple. The whole concept behind this style of scrapbooking is that it is 'free & easy' - of course everything still needs to be aligned correctly but it is not necessary to use rolls & rolls of double-sided tape or gallons of glue - it is meant to look dimensional so a blob in the middle is just fine.
I used the Lattice mask from Prima, along with some Maya Road mist in Charcoal, to create the strong, dark base on which to ground my photo & other elements. I also used string for a neutral & casual (not to mention inexpensive!) embellishment.
Wishing you all a WONDERFUL weekend! Here ours is four days long this week so I am one happy scrapper right now!!
