Today I'm sharing a step-by-step for a layout I created with the September Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook featuring the "And Many More" collection from Pink Paislee and one of the free subscriber cut files. My daughter had just heard that she had passed all her tests and exams from University! Time to celebrate and be happy!
I started with choosing the patterned papers I wanted to use and by cutting the word "Happy" three times from a sheet of white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo:
As I found the white letters too white, I decided to stamp some text on them using a Prima Marketing stamp from an older kit and light grey ink:
I placed the three words on the pink/white striped paper:
When I had matted my photo I placed this on the right side of my background paper and arranged a few bits and pieces around it:
And some more bits and pieces:
And even more:
Using my We R Memory Keepers type writer I typed some lines of journaling:
I cut the journaling apart and placed them on my layout:
For the finishing touch I added some machine stitching:
And I was done! Hope you like my page! Here are a few more close-ups of the layout:
I really LOVED this kit! I love the colors and the designs, but above all that it was a birthday kit! I have so many birthday photos I still need to scrap, so this kit was pretty much perfect!
