Lots of fun details in today’s layout. It all started with the scalloped edge diaper pin paper by Creative Imaginations.
The woman holding the baby (who is now 23 years old and a Marine) was my mother-in-law. We lost her in 2005. I still miss her. She would have been proud of Josh.
The title was done with a combination of rub ons (“baby”) and die cuts (the Sizzix Sizzlits Script alphabet set.) It’s a great way to stretch your supplies. Plus, I think titles look more interesting when they’re made up of a variety of elements.
The tags are made with the Sizzix Scallop Tags red die and tied with a bit of embroidery floss.
The blue scallops are done with Tim Holtz’s Scallops On The Edge Die. ( I LOVE this die, it’s so versatile!)
The stack of packages is fun, but WOW, it took forever. They were cut with the Sizzix originals Gifts yellow die, and I inked each one with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. They were placed onto the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8 Mega Die with either one or two layers of Dimensional Adhesive.
By the way, the blue bow came on a package of candy. I always save bits and bobs like that to use in crafts, you never know when they’ll be just the perfect thing.
This 12″x12″ layout started simple, with just four 3.5″ square photos, matted on a 7.5″x11″ rectangle. A 3″x11″ strip to the left gives you plenty of room for a title, journaling or more photos. This one is very open to interpretation, and also can be turned in any direction. Then the embellishing can begin!
