I was lucky enough to create two layouts. I have rotated the sketch 90 degrees anticlockwise.
I have used the totally gorgeous new Simple Stories 'Happy' Sn@p Pack. These new packs contain 131 pieces - 4x6, 3x4, 4x4, 3x3 and 2x2 cards as well as Bits & Pieces!
I've chosen a selection of the cards which feature a plain colour on the B side and arranged them in a kind've ombré effect.
Over the top I have layered more of the smaller cards and rounded the corners of one of the 3x4 cards to look like a polaroid.
For the garland, I have used my sewing machine to stitch together some of the Bit & Pieces that come in the pack, including a die cut word for a bit of fun.
Bits & Pieces raised on foam tape give a printed card some dimension.
My next page was created using the following sketch
For this one, I have used the 'I AM' collection, perfect to express the relief of a safe delivery and the love I felt for my newborn Miss E.
Using three shades of the I AM basics, I used my Silhouette to cut out the large 'E' out of a strip of 'Unique' then backed this with some 'Strong'. Over the top I have heaped a load of Glossy Accents, being careful to stay within the cut area. I love the deep gloss it gives the letter!
Over the larger image I have used a photo overlay, some stickers and a wood veneer from the Enchanted collection.
For the tag in the sketch, I have used one of the new 'I AM' interactive elements. This pack is full of surprises! And for someone like me (who loves to hide my handwriting) they are perfect!
|The tag slides out to reveal journalling. I have altered it by adding some stickers.|
The page is finished off with some stitching, enamel dots, brads.
Thank you so much for popping in. I hope you will give the sketches a go!
