Just trying out this blogging thing again! :D
I wanted to share some layouts I did this past weekend while attending a fundraising crop in Saskatchewan that was hosted by some amazing breast cancer survivors!
One of my favorite places to visit every summer is Elbow Falls just west of Calgary. I love exploring along the river and being calmed by the sound of the water as it flows by. So I created these layouts using pictures of one of the many adventures we had there.
I purchased this super awesome open sky paper from a gal who was selling Creative Memories at the crop. I thought it would go well with this picture. I used the Up & Away thinlit dies from SUP! (Stampin Up!) to make the clouds, stitching stamps from Prima (edges), random washi tape and a title from a package of laser cut titles that are also Creative Memories.
These next couple of layouts were made using Simple Stories wood grain pattern papers (backgrounds) and some beautiful paper I picked up at a new, super cute, scrapbook store in Dalmeny, SK! (Which you really need to check out if you are in the area!)
I thought I was being pretty clever wrapping my journaling around the paper blocks. I think it turned out well! :D
The little popped up embellishments were fussy cut from the pattern paper and I decided against adding a big flashy title because I didn't want to take away from the beauty of the picture.
The title on this last page was again from the Creative Memories pack plus I also bought a package of laser cut borders which I love!!
And of course I had to add in the stitching on the edges (I just can't seem to leave the edges alone! LOL!) and some sequins to embellish!
Thanks for stopping by!
