Senior Year Layout #2

This is another layout for my great-nieces senior book. She was in their school play "Cinderella". I wanted to have several places for pictures.

This is a 2 page 12x12 layout. The images were cut using the Gypsy and the Cricut with the "Disney - Princesses Happily Ever After", and the title was cut using " Blackletter" cartridge. The edge for the photo mats were cut using the EK "Diamond Lace" border punch.

Senior Year Layouts #1

My niece asked is I would help with making my great-niece a scrapbook for her senior year of high school. She will be graduating from Independence High School in Columbus Ohio this June.

The first page I think will be her opening page of her book. Their colors are red, white and blue. Their mascot is the 76er. I used a printed background and added Stickles to the fireworks. I found the 76er and printed it out on white cardstock, then added glitter using the Spica marker. The letters were cut using the Gypsy and the Cricut. The cartridge used was Base Camp.

For homecoming she and her date wore black and silver. I made a 2 page layout for this one. On the first page the flowers were made using several methods. I used the Cricut, the Slice, and different punches. The letters were cut with the Gypsy and Cricut from the Base Camp cartridge. The photo mat was cut using the Martha Stewart punch-around-the-page "Swirling Lace".

The second page I added butterflies using the Martha Stewart punch "Monarch Butterfly" and the Movers and Shapers die "Mini Butterflies Sets". I added a bead of Beads in a Bottle under the wings to make the wings stand up. The flourishes were cut from glitter paper using Tim Holtz Alterations die "Elegant Flourishes" and Sizzix die "Flourish". I also cut the edges of the mats with the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chopper "Deco" edge.

Birthday Layout

These are two layouts that I made using my page kits. This made making these pages so fast and fun to make. This is a method that I will continue to use. Today I'm going to make up the embellishments needed for the other kits that I already have made up.

12 Tags of 2012 - March

This is my March tag for Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012.

The tag was cut using the Sizzix "Tim Holtz Alterations die - Tag & Bookplates". I did not have a woodgrain stamp but I did have the Sizzix "Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades Embossing Folder - Woodgrain". So I embossed the tag then inked with Ranger "Tim Holtz Distressed Ink - Vintage Photo". I was unable to stamp my sentiment on the embossed tag so I stamped it, inked it and cut it out before I applied it to the tag. The butterflies were made using Tim's method for mosaic. I did not have the metal flowers so I just added flowers and a brad. This was a fun one to make.
