building with LOVE!

"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).


  1. Why is it leaving white boxes to the left of all my pictures???

  2. Yay Jen!! This is a great layout. Love the little banner at the top!!

  3. That's weird Jen - I'm not sure why that's doing that. Are you posting it like a pic??
