Welcome to the February Edition of Scrapping Our Stash!
You may be arriving from Lynn’s site but if not don’t panic! I’ve got a full Blog Hop list for you at the end of this post.
Today I am trying – key word there – to put a dent into my stash of frames. For some reason I’ve been amassing cute little frame elements even though I hardly ever use them on a page. Weird, I know. That’s just the way I roll sometimes!
Here’s a look at most of my stash and what I made with some of it.
I mentioned two other layouts in my video. The first is one I made recently using three of those printed frame images from the patterned paper by Shimelle. I haven’t blogged about it yet but you can see it in my Flickr Gallery here. As you can see I used one fussy cut frame in each embellishment cluster. The other layout was one by Tracey Banks (a.k.a. Mercy Tiara). It took me awhile to find it again as it was a lot older than I thought – it’s from 2014! But well worth a watch on YouTube.
Here’s my finished layout.
After the camera was turned off I realized I really didn’t want to add any journaling to this after all. Gasp! Don’t panic. It’ll be okay. The Scrapbook Police are not going to break down my Scrap Cave door just because I didn’t journal!
I simply realized that all the words on the page already said everything for me. So I’m letting them do all the talking for once. I merely added the date and place.
You also may have noticed that I added a few enamel stars after filming too. I had one yellow, two orange, and four pink stars left in my package so I used them in such a way as to spread the colour more evenly around the layout. I also wanted to highlight that top left photo of my daughter a bit more and the stars help do that.
I love looking at clusters and knowing that each piece in it was carefully chosen because it directly relates to the story. In this case the story is my daughter – a drama queen, obsessed with this one particular pair of sunglasses, who I always refer to as my little ray of sunshine, and who loves to pose for the camera! Perfect!
For editing purposes I am calling this layout Cute Smile. Because in this photo she has one! Currently she is in the process of losing her two front teeth (as well as another on the bottom) so her smile is a bit crooked and snaggly looking. It will get cute again soon I’m sure!
Thank you for joining in on our hop today. If you make something inspired by this layout I’d love to see it! Please leave a link in the comments below or on my Facebook Page. Cheers!
