Phew... It's been a while. You know if you are looking for my scrappy creations, the best place to look is over on my YouTube channel, right? And if you aren't a YouTube watcher (don't worry, I get that. Generally speaking, nor am I), then I need to you to let me know so I can be better about updating the blog. From what I see on the back end, not many people come here so I don't want to spend unnecessary time here. But if enough of you tell me you like reading the blog or scrolling through the blog, I'm happy to accommodate.
And so! I am honored to be a Guest designer this month over at The ScrapRoom! The ScrapRoom is "come as you please" kit club, ie non commitment, that allows you to skip kits at any time. The "main" kit is called the Flavors of the Month kit and comes with four different page kits; there are 3 patterned papers and a sampling of embellishments. It is a great way to get a flavor of a collection! I have loved guesting for this kit company!
Today I'm sharing with you a layout that I created using the February Crate Paper, Good Vibes collection Flavor of the Month as well as some embellishments that are in the Embellishment Add On kit and a digital cut file that I created to help stretch the kit a little more!
This picture is of my daughter on the day that she began her orthodontic journey, with an expander. This idea to create this layout came from the selection of phrases that were included in my kit; goals. I had seen the "smile" sticker from the add on kit and decided that paired with "new" I had the perfect title; New Smile Goals. Perhaps not the most succinct title or best English but hey! It worked for story telling purposes!
In order to tell the story and have the photo not compete with the colors in the collection, I converted the photo to black and white. After all, who really needs "in living color" of the inside of Mia's mouth?! LOL! Not many of us, I'm sure of that. The days of the week stickers worked perfectly as part of the story telling in order to convey that we had to crank the expander every day of the week that she had it. Not once but twice actually.
You can find the FREE Download HERE for the digital cut file that I used for the vellum flowers. They are a fun way to extend the use of the kit, especially if you don't get the embellishment add on or want to fussy cut too many of the flowers from the patterned paper.
