First of all, wow- get a load of my brand new blog design, care of the fabulous, creative, and patient (with all my requests) Kristine Davidson! Check her out at kristinedavidson.blogspot.ca to see her beautiful scrappy work, sketches and blog designs. After 4 years of using the basic Blogger template, I finally decided to get a personalised look and I am loving it! Thanks so much, Kristine!
Next, I have a fun and easy layout to share with you:
|Created with the Scraptastic Carry On kit and Add-on|
This layout was a breeze to make, using the Scraptastic Carry On kit and add-on. The fabulous pic of my oldest daughter’s excited reaction to counting her money was the starting point. The idea of counting money led me to spread the cut out numbers from the Simple Stories paper all around the left side of the layout.
|Silhouette cut title for a tone-on-tone look|
Because this layout was going to be pretty simple and unlayered, I wanted a title that was a little different from my standard letter sticker schtick. The yellow Bazzill cardstock in the kit was a perfect match to the yellow honeycomb paper, so I decided to cut a tone-one-tone title using my Silhouette Cameo. I sewed the letters with gold thread and pulled them up for shadowed dimension.
I added a few stickers from the kit and Thicker numbers from my stash here and there for added interest.
Here’s the video showing how it all came together:
