This week at H2H (Heart 2 Heart) their challenge was 1-2-3. Use 1 stamp, 2 pattern papers and 3 embellishments. Instead of making a card this time, I made a layout! I'm working on a project and needed to make a layout. My problem now i,s I don't have many pictures to scrapbook! My girls are grown and we just don't take many pictures so I didn't have the kind of pictures I was looking for to complete my project. It is hard to go back and use old photos because I have found that photography and the quality of our photos has changed so much in the last 20 years. Many times I shake my head at the types of shots I took way back when. So, I reached out to my friend who has the most adorable little girls and asked if I could use them as my subject. I think this turned out 2 CUTE!
My layout design is from the How To Book - Imagine. The sketch is "Up The Tempo". One of my 'go to" stamps for flourishes lately as been the Love Life (D1482) stamp. I used this set to stamp the flourishes in the upper right corner of the Left Page and also on the journal piece of the Right Page. The sentiments are from the same set. Notice the extra journaling piece hidden behind the middle photo on the right page. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut a decorative shape for the top.
My TWO pieces of pattern paper are from the Lucy paper pack (X7149B). I used Blush Carstock and Grey Wool ink to tie all the colors together.
My THREE embellishments are Paper Flowers, Ribbon and Rhinestone Brads. The paper flowers are from the new Just Blooms Paradise Collection (Z1710). There are actually 2 different ribbons - one is the Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (Z1383) and the other ribbon which are my 'leaves' for my flowers is from the Designer Ribbon Green Collection (Z1616). I just LOVE these Rhinestone Designer Brads (Z1360). They make perfect centers for my paper flowers!
To finish the layout I had to add a title! What better title than "2 Cuties" because that is exactly what these little girls are! I used the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge to cut the "2" and used the Layer Option. I added a little bling to the "2". "Cuties" is stamped with the Bohemian Alphabet (E1019) stamp and each letter was cut out and applied with 3D Foam tape so that they would stand out.
