Here we are again, another day for scrapping the little things! Hey, at least I am getting a few layouts done. More than I've ever done...lol. Anyway, I have a layout today for you of my little Miss Aleida's first experience with snow. At first she liked....well, I'll explain as we go...how 'bout that.
I chose three photos that best portrayed her experience. Gotta love this girl.
I used the Build A Banner Kit to make three little flags up in this corner. I had some snowflake buttons in my stash and added a bit of hemp from Liz's Paper Loft. I cut a second set of the bottom layer in a darker color and offset them just enough to give a shadow.
I cut three of the postage frames and laid them over the picture to get just what I wanted. I arranged them so that the cut out areas matched each other to almost make little circles. I popped them up on dimensional adhesive.
This stamp said it all! Nothing else could be added, lol! She was fine until she fell and got her hands in the snow. At this time we had not gotten her mittens yet...just the snow suit. She did not like it and didn't know what to think. How bad were we to laugh at her tears...sure she will forgive us...lol! To get the sentiment to fit in this label die, I did the first cut with half of the die hanging off the edge of the cutting plates...this way that end wouldn't cut. I needed it longer. Then for the second cut, I rotated the die and lined up the sides and scooted it down a bit to be longer. This time I left that end hanging over the cutting plate. When you crank it through it now cuts the opposite end and you end up with a longer version of this label die. Sometime I will do it again with step by step photos to show you. Didn't get it done for this post....sorry....look for it coming very soon!
For my journaling mat, I used the two XL label die and the journaling stamp from Cherish This Moment stamp set. It fits in here perfectly! I will be doing my journaling for Aleida to read....don't really want it all out there for the world to see....lol!
So, here are the sets I used for this layout.
Pick up some of these supplies or use things you already have to create a nice little 8x8 layout of a moment in time you don't want to forget! I'm enjoying this size, and for me, it works. Be sure you see all the other creations from our design team.
