Kids & Layouts

Hiya. Well I'm not much of a scrapping kind of girl but..... I just couldn't bring myself to cut these fab papers up too much!! If I'd have made anything else it would have meant cutting them up and then you don't get to see just how lush they really are.
So this first one is of my daughter at her leaving assembly. Though she hasn't really left she is in the 6th form now! I used the Creative Imaginations - Renae's House for this layout. They are double sided so I used the stripe side as the base and then added a torn off strip along the bottom from the other side of the paper. Sacrilege, I cut out some of the flowers from another sheet of paper from the same range and used 3D pads to stick them on so they would stand out. I also added some red buttons so that they could co-ordinate with Sigourney's top. Along the bottom of the torn strip I added some red and white spotty ribbon to co-ordinate again. The title is computer generated.

The next layout is using a recent school photo of my two youngest. I loved the sepia photo best. Don't they look angelic? Not always like that though!
For this one I used the American Crafts Bookshelf range. To add a bit of detail to the paper I added a strip of contrasting paper , again from another sheet of the Bookshelf range. To cover the joins I stuck a strip of ribbon on the top and bottom, which I think went really well with the circle and stripe paper. Then to add a fun touch I stuck buttons onto the circles, trying to match up the same colours. The little rub on words "hug" and "pal" seemed just right for this layout. (just to let you know these rub ons are great value as they are in the shop with 50% off!!!!) And again the text was computer generated.

And if you are thinking that I've used a lot of buttons well... for only £1 a bag, how can you go wrong????

Quite simple to do but I think really effective!
