Just Add Water

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!

Looks like a great sketch that I would love. And your layout is fabulous! Great colors and love those big circles.
Love that you created a card from the sketch as well. Going to pin that one :)

When I photograph two pagers, I usually get my white foam board out and place it on my scrap counter. Then I stand on my scrap chair and try to photograph from above, so I can get a shot straight down in the natural light.
I find two pagers very had to get good photos of still though.

Great 2-pager! I don't think I can create a 2-pager anymore with out an SG sketch. I love their layouts and how they get so many photos on without the layout getting over crowded. Love your white background and fun papers! :)

Nice layout! There's something I love about scrapping summer pictures with white background and bright colors. Love the card too.

Danielle,
What a pretty LO and card. I love the vibrant colors. Are those brads on the card or the new ones have no back?

Oh and thank you for coming by my desk for my first week on WOYWW.
