While playing catch up today after all of the
fun events taking place
during National Scrapbooking Day,
I came across an awesome
challenge at Spellbinders Paper Arts!
They are hosting a layout challenge
for a great cause!!!
I wanted to stay away from my typical girly bling and flowers to be able
to join in the fun at the Unity - Ippity Challenge, too.
Since masculine theme is difficult for me, go figure with 4 dear daughters and 1 sweet son in the house, I stuck with Primary Colors.
Here is my finished layout:
For the upper sentiment (inside the Polaroid shaped mask) I used
the set the TIME is NOW
I stamped it onto the navy blue cs using VersaMagic, Cloud White
then heat embossed using Whispers Opaqu.
The camera image was stamped using
I stamped the image onto Quick Quotes - Cherry Truffle dp
using TH Barn Door then heat embossed using a denim
embossing powder. Before applying it to the LO, I stamped
a shadow image using the same Barn Door ink pad directly onto the white cs.
The sentiment on the banner tag was stamped using the Unity/Simple Stories ~ Snapshots Itty Bitty as well. I used VersaMagic, Cloud White
then heat embossed using Whispers Opaque.
I created a Mickey design using my circle round punch and two small circle die cuts
from my stash. I used it first to mask my layout while spraying it with my handmade
glimmer mist. Then when finished I used it as an embellishment. I also dripped some fun primary colors of alcohol ink onto the page as well.
The notebook stamp inside the bottom Mickey shape, is from the Ippity Stamp Book It!
I wanted it to appear like a journaling spot for the family who
receives the layout from Spellbinders.
I also wanted to challenge myself to use the sketch
Here is the challenge details pulled from the Spellbinders site:
- Create a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout with no photos on the page, just the mats to adhere photos later.
- Post a photo of your layout on our new Facebook Contest Page to get people into the spirit... then send the original layout by mail to: Spellbinder Paper Arts, Attn: Terre Fry 1125 W. Pinnacle Peak Road, Bldg 3, Suite 124, Phoenix, AZ 85027
- All Layouts are to be given to Crops of Luv™. Crops of Luv™ creates scrapbooks for critically ill children and their families. Most of these albums are used to commemorate trips through the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Since it's inception in 2009... Crops of Luv™ has created over 250 albums... all with help of volunteers.
