1 card, 2 layouts



I have a card and two layouts to share this afternoon. The card and my first layout are for the Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party 

My card is for the In the Background challenge to use a background stamp, the Tickle Me Silly challenge to use a feather & it's also for the Bedtime Sketch:

I used my WMS Woodgrain background stamp and Fancy Feathers set. The card stock, button, twine and stamped sentiment, from Boutique Borders: Birthday are all Papertrey Ink.


My layout is also for the In the Background challenge, where again, I used my WMS woodgrain stamp, in fresh snow on my kraft cardstock background. I used Simple Stories patterned paper.


I cut out my title on my Silhouette.


I diecut two tags using my PTI Tag Sale #7 die. I stamped on them using my WMS My Island stamp set. (I included four elements from nature (sun, island, sea & trees) for the 2Peas CHA challenge: Four Elements from Nature.)


And my last layout is for the 2Peas CHA Challenge: Three Pieces of Memorabilia.

My kids participate in our town's annual Festival of the Arts and I like to scrapbook the ceritificates they get along with their photos. Unfortunately, the certificates are a burgandy purple colour and hard to scrapbooking.

I noticed that some left over Basic Grey and Pebbles patterned paper I had on my scrap table matched the certificates, so I used it to make my layout. I made a pocket so I could tuck in the certificates.


Once again, I cut the title on my silhouette. I handwrote my journaling and added some Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals stamps and die cuts.


Thanks for looking!

You are the absolute best at making scrapbook pages Leigh...love your feather card, but for me, those pages are the winners! I love the one with the My Island tags. LOVE IT!

I very much like the card with the feathers, they look like real ones. Your layouts are also very pretty.

Oh that title is amazing ... the "summer" outline is so darn cool!! And I love how you include the certificates right with the scrapbook page. Plus you left a decorative edge showing for a design element on the page. So smart, Leigh!!
