A couple of layouts


I've been making so many cards lately for the Summer Card Camp 2 class I've been taking, that I haven't been making many scrapbooking layouts. When I saw that 2Peas was having a CHA online crop, I thought I'd play along.

They have ten challenges posted on their blog here. The first layout I made is for Challenge #1: One colour you love.

I decided to scrapbook a photo of my remodelled scrap space, since I'd painted the walls my favourite colour: aqua mist. I used some Lily Bee & Dear Lizzy patterned pape & PTI cardstock (white, aqua mist).


I cut the title out on my silhouette.


I cut the jar out of the back of the sheet of Dear Lizzy patterned paper, wrapped it with some twine and added a button.


My next layout is for Challenge #2: Two people.

I scrapbooked a photo of Jonah & me, that Sage took of us on Canada Day. I used some Echo Park & Dear Lizzy patterned paper (this I'd cut out of the back of my first layout.) Again, I cut the title out on my silhouette, using PTI Winter Wisteria card stock.


Here's a photo of my journaling:


And here 's a close-up of the list he typed up (isn't it sweet?)


I looped some twine and added some buttons. I used my PTI double-ended banner die & some PTI gold shimmer card stock. On it, I stamped some sentiments from PTI's Fabulous Frames stamp set. The original stamp said "This is the life", but I selectively inked it and added the "fabulous" stamp at the end.


Thanks for looking!
