Welcome back for my second layout featuring the exclusive National Scrapbook Day Kit, Papers and Stickers from Creative Memories! These materials are super cute and perfect for pages featuring children. I still have 3 more layouts to share, so make sure to come back and visit with me over the next three days.
If you don’t have a CM advisor, I would be glad to mail these exclusive items to you as they are only available directly from an advisor. The kit is $12.50, and the coordinating paper pack is $5.00 – plus everyone who purchases from me will also receive a coordinating sticker strip for free.
As with my first layout, these pages also started as single pages that I later put together as a double-page spread. If I had started as a double-page layout, I would have done something different with my banner stickers. But since I had already added the faux pen stitching, I decided not to move them.
For the first page, I used the orange print paper as the base and added a 6″ x 12″ piece of the green striped paper. I punched an edge of the white print paper with the Original Border Maker using the Scallop Dot Cartridge and cut it off of my paper at 2″ wide. The peach patterned strip is 3/4″ wide.
To make my ice cream cone, I cut my photos using the Custom Cutting System and the smallest circle cutting pattern with the red blade on the outside edge. The yellow print, red cardstock, and royal cardstock photo mats were cut on the outside edge with the blue blade. The cone piece is 4-1/2″ wide and cut on a diagonal from the outside corners to the center of the bottom of the piece. I matted the “cherry on top” sticker with a red cardstock circle cut from the medium circle pattern on the inside edge with the blue blade. It is adhered with a Foam Square as are all of the other stickers.
The orange print paper is also the base for the second page. The green striped strips are 3/4″ and 2″ wide. The wide scalloped border is 1-1/2″ wide, and the peach print strip is 3/4″ wide. My two photo mats are 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, and my six photos are cropped to 1-7/8″ x 4″. All of the stickers are adhered with Foam Squares.
Lastly, I used the Dual-Tip Black Pen to add some faux pen stitching. I love how the simple use of a pen can add so much to a page!
I’ll see you here again tomorrow with another National Scrapbook Day layout!
