When Webster’s Pages introduced their new Clean & Simple paper collections, I said YES! Yes to the same beautiful quality paper and yes to the solid patterns and backsides! (Having a solid backside myself, I was pretty excited about this design change:)
I thought the wonderful “Sunday Picnic” line would be perfect for my June Sketchy Challenge for Canadian Scrapbooker.
|Another fantastic sketch by the talented Jill Sarginson!|
And here is my layout, featuring BabyOfTheFamily….
The journaling strips are on top of a Magenta chipboard sun, which I first painted yellow and then sprinkled clear iridescent Craft & Glitz glitter on top while the paint was still wet.
For my title, I put the Webster’s alphabet stickers on small die cut scalloped circles that I cut with my Cricut. The large orange scalloped flower layer behind the photo is also cut with my Cricut. The pink butterfly is a wonderful Martha Stewart Punch layered over a solid butterfly shape I cut in the shape of the punch. Martha also helped with the the punched scalloped borders.
The orange paper surprised me….I rarely use orange in my designs, but I think it does make this page brighter and happier…just like summer 🙂
