The One with American Crafts August 2014 Layouts

Friday, August 29, 2014

It's the last month of monthly American Crafts layouts! But don't fret, I'll still have about 4 layouts a month to make for American Crafts, they'll all just be made specifically for the AC blog and then I'll share them here too :)

DESCRIPTION: The Oh Darling collection by Crate Paper is one of my favorites because there are so many different kinds of embellishments - chipboard, wood veneer, stickers, die cuts, vellum, jewels, ribbon bows, paper bows, and more! It's super easy to put a layout together with so many coordinating pieces.

JOURNALING SAYS: Well you really are quite adorable little girl Jane! So fun to watch you grow!

HOW TO: Die cut the 11 Hearts by Lori Whitlock (Design ID #37852) from aqua ombre paper then back each heart with a patterned paper using foam dots to create dimension. Tuck three photos under the hearts. Embellish to your heart's delight, adhering colors on like colors. Journal with a gray pen on the lightest heart. Easy peasy! 

SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, chipboard, wood veneer, stickers, die cuts, vellum, jewels, ribbon bow, paper bow: Crate Paper; Adhesive, pen: American Crafts; Die cut machine: Silhouette Cameo by QuicKutz; Hearts cut file: 11 Hearts by Lori Whitlock (Design ID #37852)

YOU 2 by Paige Evans

DESCRIPTION: I received the new Shimelle collection in the mail on Tuesday and by Wednesday had created a couple of layouts! Loving the colors and all the fun embellishments!

JOURNALING SAYS: Well aren't you two so stinkin' adorable! Here you are on a boat on Königssee in Berchetsgaden, Germany having the time of your lives!

HOW TO: Punch hearts from all of the 6x6 patterned papers in the Shimelle line then adhere them across a cream patterned paper layout. Trim off the left edge and replace it with robin's egg blue cardstock; stitch over the paper seam. Layer a photo overlays, die cuts, a picture, layered chipboard "2", "you" mini alphabet stickers, cork heart, chipboard photo corners, and more as shown on the bottom right corner. Add a trio of wood veneer hearts down the top left corner. Journal next to the wood veneer hearts using a black pen then stamp the date in black ink below.
