"Building With LOVE!"
Photos from December 2007, Scrapped July 12, 2010
I created this layout by scraplifting the idea of the 4x4 photos, the house and the three shades of cardstock. I made it my own (and satisfied a CK Summer Camp merit badge) by adding the circle pennant across the top. I trimmed all my photos to 4x4 inches, and then narrowed a few of them down even more. I mounted the photos on white carstock (Scrappin' Creations Power Pad CWP008) and then layered a red and white striped paper underneath (Same pad of paper). I wanted a Christmas feel with candy cane stripes! :) I then rounded the upper right and lower left corner of the large mat. I adhered these large blocks to the solid red cardstock (also same pad of paper). I then took some left over gold paper scraps that my friend left (Thanks Toni!) and hand cut a gingerbread house. I hand cut windows, door and snow for a homemade feel. I then used my new CRICKET EXPRESSION! to cut out the tags (Simply Sweet 2" and shadow). I mounted the tags on white dot fibers (unknown origin) and tried to make them look like they were hanging, which is a lot harder than it seems when you are using two different pages! I added the title across the pennant and on the bottom journaling block using black letter stickers (Deluxe Designs--Emily's Own).
Part of this layout was created to earn my CK Summer Merit Badge on Flag Etiquette. (I also earned my Orienteering badge for learning to navigate the CK website).
