Did you all have a nice weekend? I did my best to avoid the chore of listing my kids outgrown summer clothes on Ebay, but in the end I buckled down and got it nearly done. All I really wanted to do was play with all the new Doodlebug goodies sitting next to me, but now I have taxes to tackle. Ugh!
I thought I would pop in today to share a recent layout I created using Jillibean Soup's yummy Cold Avocado Soup collection. I am a sucker for this color combination every time. I love it and it was a great match for these snapshots of my hubby and me that were taken just a couple days before our 17th wedding anniversary. We totally lucked out wearing the same color--That wasn't even planned (after all these years we must be in sync or this scrapbooker has him well trained). ;)
For my overall layout I turned to a simple sketch by Shimelle Laine and filled the open space with a fun argyle inspired print that I created with a diamond cutting file on my Silhouette Cameo. After getting all the diamonds in place, I took a ruler and drew light pencil marks to guide my stitching and then erased them away when I was done. I then added some rhinestones at each intersection for a little bling.
To create my title I layered a Jillibean Wise Words Sticker with some type stickers and some diecut words from their basic staples patterned paper. I also layered and embellished with some of their pea pod parts cutouts.
I'll be back on Thursday to share a digital layout I made with these same photos for my 8x8 Christmas albums last year. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a crafty week! :)
