I am hesitant to announce this, but I have a new Double the Fun layout sketch up on the Canadian Scrapbooker website….for SUMMER 2014! Ha ha. That is how the magazine industry rolls. Everything is planned waaaaay ahead. While working on my Christmas cards and crafts, my creative mind is also thinking about Spring and Summer.
Here is my new sample layout…
After weeks of harassing my teenagers, I finally wrangled them together for our annual fall photo shoot. Ok, so the picture snapping only lasted 4 minutes just before our Thanksgiving dinner last month, but this is better than nothing!
Here is my new sketch, which I hope you’ll try using for one of your layouts…
I used the gorgeous DCWV “Industrial Chic” Stack which is full of deep, rich patterns and colours, perfect for fall, vintage, masculine and so on.
Plus, the larger photo in the centre has a burlap mat, from the DCWV Burlap Stack. I love the texture that it brings to the layout.
The small black type alphabet stickers are Glitz Design and the heart and ‘ticket’ and key are all cut from the patterned DCWV papers.
The hearts are just cut freehand from that red paper, and I inked the edges with Clearsnap black chalk ink.
My journaling tag is cut from the DCWV paper as well. Then I punched two holes at the top corners and wrapped my twine through.
The bottom border of the layout has a May Arts twill ribbon running across.
I hope you enjoy this new sketch…and you have LOTS of time to submit your layout before the deadline: February 15, 2014!
