Today, I created a two-page layout using a sketch from one of the Scrapbook Generations sketchbooks. I don't normally do two-pagers anymore, but I had more photos than usual that I wanted to include. I followed this sketch pretty closely because I really liked the clean lines of the design. I used Thickers for half the title and stamped the rest. I added the tag to give the journaling a place to rest and I embellished it with a bit of washi tape from my fast growing collection. I wasn't even sure how to photograph a layout this wide. lol...
While I was taking the above photo, I noticed how well the design of the first page would lend itself to a card. So, while the supplies were still out, I created this Celebrate card. Cute, huh? I substituted the sentiment for the photos in the sketch. And, of course, I had to add some stitching. The stamp was from the $1 bin at Wal-mart. I just cut out the parts I didn't want to give me a stamp that I liked. I actually do that quite often with cheaper stamps. It doesn't bother me to cut them up since I didn't spend a lot of money on them to begin with. Great way to build a collection of sentiments!
