Hey everyone! The August gallery is live over at Scarlet Lime. If you like retro you'll love this month's kit named "Retrophide" after a set of digital papers by Jesse Edwards printed with exclusive permission by Scarlet Lime for this month's kit.
My first layout with is all about my boys and their Mimi (my mom). My boys have such a special relationship with their Mimi and I took the opportunity to document it with this month's kit.
I decided to keep the journaling private so I created this cute little file folder using my Cricut and an svg file I found on the internet, printed my journaling on the reverse side of the patterned paper, and secured it with a tiny glue dot to the back of this sweet heart metal clip from Basic Grey.
And just a quick image of my titlework. These chipboard letters from Cosmo Cricket are the perfect size and I loved that I could use the long arrow to ground my title.
For my next layout I decided to scrap some photos of my cutie patootie nephew Eli that I snapped while we were vacationing with my sister's family down in Ocean City, NJ a few weeks ago. Isn't he just a doll? And it just so happens that his bathing suit matched the colors in the plaid paper in this kit perfectly (and no that was not planned! LOL).
I wanted this layout to have a really whimsical feel to it so I first added a little mist to my vanilla cardstock background before laying down my patterned papers. I created a sun for my layout with a circle punch and just strips of yellow patterend paper cut to varying lengths.
One of the patterned papers had a banner border on the reverse so I cut out a few of the "flags" and used them as part of my title work. Yes, my little nephew is quite the beach babe!
And that's about it. I have two more layouts to share with you that I created using the Frugal Fab kit this month. Christy did an amazing job with the Frugal Fab kit again this month - I have no idea how she packs so. much. stuff. into a $19.95 kit but when I say it's well worth the money (and then some) take my word for it! Plus it features patterned paper and chipboard pieces by Pebbles Inc. And ya'll know how much I love Pebbles! ;)
