The One with July 2013 American Crafts Layouts

Monday, July 29, 2013

Just a quick update on our sitch: The good news is our stuff has arrived - including my scrapbooking supplies!! All 7 crates that were shipped from South Pasadena, CA in May have arrived in Grafenwoehr, Germany!! Now we just need a house to put all the stuff away in... I've been using the same stuff since May to create things. I need some new material :)
In any case, here are the layouts I made for American Crafts (which includes the American Crafts-owned brands Crate Paper, Pebbles, Studio Calico, Project Life, and now just announced - Imaginisce!):

Journaling says: You're finally crawling! You've got two bottom teeth and one upper tooth. You're always into mischief! Love you!

How to: Trim concentric hearts from patterned paper and cardstock and layer them in like colors in a grid pattern across a woodgrain paper layout background. Add four wallet-sized photos over the hearts. Stamp the date on one of the photos and write journaling on one of the hearts. Attach a fabric brad through three of the hearts to embellish. Back one of the hearts with half of a doily then create the title on top using chipboard numbers and a hand cut word. 

Supplies: Cardstock, chipboard numbers, date stamp, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, fabric brads: Crate Paper; Doily: Wilton; Ink: StazOn

Journaling says: Fox, do you want chicken? No. Candy. Just candy. 
You come by it honestly, I too would rather have candy for all my meals instead of real food. But, you're daddy is a dentist and says it's bad for your teeth. And the doctor would be mad at me :)

How to: Create a diamond template from cardstock then use it to cut diamonds from every paper in The Pier 6x6 patterned paper pad by Crate Paper as well as from three photos. Crinkle the paper diamonds to distress them. Arrange the diamonds across the top half of a ledger paper background. Embellish the diamonds with chipboard shapes, stickers, a button, die cuts, and more. Add a caption with mini alphabet stickers then stamp the date below on a tab sticker. Write journaling on the bottom left edge with a white pen the drop white spray mist across the layout.

Supplies: Patterned paper, chipboard (geotags, token), fabric brad, die cuts (heart, number): Crate Paper; Button: Pebbles; Stickers: Crate Paper (tab, words), Kaisercraft (mini alphabet); Spray mist: Studio Calico; Date stamp, adhesive: American Crafts; Ink: StazOn; Pen: Uniball Signo
Until next month!
