Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em 🙂 But in all seriousness, kids are such a fun part of scrapbooking! From documenting their milestones to letting them help create and journal on layouts – this week we'll be focusing on these little balls of energy. Paige Evans (Blog: Paige Evans | Instagram: @paigetaylorevans | Pinterest: @paigeevans) has the first project to share:
Supplies: Rise & Shine (370024) – 12×12 Paper Pad, Transparent Stickers (370032) – Remarks, Epoxy Stickers (370034) – Remarks, Die Cut Shapes (370038) – Bits, Mixed Circle Tags (370039) – Bits, Shaped Paper Clips (370044) – Details, Fine & Dandy (370084) – 12×12 Paper Pad, Cardstock Shapes (370099), Toothpick Flags (370100), Paperclips (37013=03), Gold Rimmed Tags (370109)
How to: Trim a sheet of white cardstock into (16) 3" squares. Trim patterned papers (I used the Rise & Shine collection by Amy Tangerine and the Fine & Dandy line by Dear Lizzy) into 1/2" strips. Cover the cardstock squares with adhesive then layer the patterned paper strips across. You have to be systematic about placing dark and light colored papers to create the star. That's where the quilt inspiration came in. Adhere the darker colored squares with foam dots, adhere the lighter squares with regular adhesive onto a vanilla cardstock base. Then trim the eight half/half squares diagonally and adhere the light part with regular adhesive and the dark part with foam squares – this way the entire star pops off the page. Stitch around the star a couple of times using a sewing machine and white thread. Add a photo off-center and embellish to your heart's desire. Journal with a black pen and stamp the date in black ink. Done and done!
