Today I have a layout to share that I made for the Crate Paper June Creative Weekly Challenge: Hello, Polka Dots.
I dug through my Crate Paper stash and found two patterned papers with polka dots: one from the Maggie Holmes Collection and one from The Pier. I paired these with a photo that Sage took of me this spring and decided to scrapbook a layout about my thoughts on being forty.
Here's my layout:
I layered some Crate embellishments for my title. The doily diecut is from DIY. I diecut some PTI Headline Number dies from a scrap of the background patterned paper to make the "40". I stamped part of a Fresh Squeezed Stamp (You Said It, Sister) onto a PTI double-ended banner diecut and heat embossed it in white.
The tag was on a sheet of Maggie Holmes tags. I cut this out with my PTI Tag Sale #3 dies and added some PTI twine. The Special Event die cut is Maggie Holmes.
A couple more Maggie Holmes layered die cuts over here...
For my journaling, I adhered my photo over a large glassine bag, in which I tucked my journaling.
I die cut the end of my card stock using a PTI Edger's #5 die cut. I stamped the "inside" from PTI's Movers & Shakers Sentiments and the polka dots from Fresh Squeezed Stamp's You Said It, Sister.
Thanks for looking!
