Hello Crafty Blends
I hope you have stuck with
me through my irregular
and are ready
to see my next
DT project for 3 Girl JAM!
I grabbed all of my
3 Girl JAM goodies
and couldn't decide
whether to use
or the Canvas Border Strips,
or the fun Heavy 3 Layer Twine
I used THEM ALL on my layout!!!
I decided to do a fun Layout with a Boyish color scheme (blues and browns)
since I don't dabble too much
with masculine projects.
I have some very fun baby pictures of Lance Jr.
that I will have to hunt for
to put in this layout,
but at least the layout is ready whenever I do find them.
I started by adding the Sky Blue twine to my photo mats
so it could serve as Photo Corners
to hold the pics in place.
Then I pleated the adhesive Canvas Border below the mats
using a Core'dinations border strip as my backing.
After adhering this together, I used an EK success punch to create
the trimmed edge.
I inked the edges of my mats using a Studio G brown
to highlight the edges between the dp and the brown cs.
I used several stamps from my new
Ippity by Unity set
I received from the sweet Heather Flaherty!
called Life's Little Moments.
For the round date and journaling stamp, I inked it using TH
Vintage Photo, then adhered it to another piece of cs for support.
I then looped my Baby Boy Blue Crinkle Ribbon
and glued it using Tacky Glue to the back. I added a 3rd circle
piece of card stock after this.
I used the same TH ink for the journaling box in the upper left corner, but
stamped the sentiment, "Here's the Story"
using Versa Magik - Sea Breeze.
The blue rectangle Labels are by Pebbles Inc.
The corsage pin was made me moiee'
and the faux stitching around the borders were created
using a Whisper Strokes - Dual Tip Watercolor Marker
Here is the full view of the completed Layout!
