The Backwards Shirt | The Cut Shoppe

I have a new layout to share with you today that was recently on The Cut Shoppe Blog using The Picture Perfect Cut File!

I started with a white cardstock base and then used the Prima Tropicals Watercolor Confections to add color to the background. I positioned the frames from The Picture Perfect Cut File in a grid design on the background. I love how the yellow pops from under the frames!

I backed one of the frames with my photo, which happens to be a school photo of my kiddo. I don’t normally scrapbook school photos, but this one had a story that needed to be told! HA! I happened to home on picture day…which doesn’t happen very often since I work full time outside the home. I got Aidan ready for school, sent him off, and when he came home we were talking. I glanced at his shirt and noticed it was on backwards…and it had been that way the ENTIRE day! HA! Thankfully he was wearing a solid color shirt and the stitching from the tag wasn’t very noticeable! We both had a big laugh when we realized what had happened!

A lot of the embellishments are from older Amy Tangerine Collections along with a few other odds and ends from my stash. I discuss in my process video at the end of the blog post on how I’m constantly reorganizing my craft supplies & I went through a time period where I made a colossal mistake on opening all of my die cuts and organizing them by color rather than manufacturer. Let’s just say that didn’t work for me! So a majority of the embellishments I use on this layout have been removed from the original packaging so I’m not 100% sure on manufacturer. I’ve since moved on to organizing my embellishments in a way that is more workable for my creative flow.

I used retired alpha stickers from Close To My Heart for the title and my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter to add the journaling.

Now you can take a look at my YouTube Process Video.

My Favorite Bloom | Spiegelmom Scraps

Hey friends! I have my final layout to share with you today as the March Guest Designer for Spiegelmom Scraps.

12x12 scrapbook layout using the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Bloom Collection + the Sunflower Fields Sequin Mix from Spiegelmom Scraps.

I came across these 3 photos of my son when he was a baby and they immediately pulled at my heartstrings! My mom snapped these photos of him playing in the dandelions when he was about 17 months old. I knew the Sunflower Fields Sequin Mix would be perfect to pair with these photos that have so much green & pops of yellow!

Then I went looking into my stash to find papers to match and came across the Crate Paper – Maggie Holmes – Bloom Collection. I grabbed a woodgrain patterned paper from the Bloom 12×12 Paper Pad to use as my background. I wanted to add more detail to the background so I grabbed white & pink acrylic paints to add splatters. I fussy cut a few florals from one of the patterned papers from the same paper pad and positioned the flowers in a vertical fashion in the center of the background.

I cut a couple butterflies in a light pink cardstock, and I also cut very intricate leaves/branches from the Bloom & Butterflies FREEBIE Cut File using vellum & another sheet of patterned paper included in the Bloom 12×12 Paper Pad. I tucked those branches randomly throughout the layout to help balance the design.

Then it came time for my title and I struggled a bit finding something that would work. I ended up deciding on “My Favorite Bloom” using the puffy stickers from the Bloom Collection.

Then for final touches, I added all of the colors from the Spiegelmom Scraps Sunflower Fields Sequin Mix.

Now you can take a look at how my layout came together!

I want to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to Jody from Spiegelmom Scraps for reaching out to me and asking me to guest design. It has been so much fun creating these layouts using the gorgeous Sequin Mixes.
