Hey there all you crafty peeps! I'm up at the Scrapbook Nerd forum today with day 6 of our "Valentine's Week" of inspiration! I'm also playing along with one of the fellow DT members Michelle's challenge for us to use a sunburst on our layout. Her challenge went perfectly with Studio Calico's sketch this week.
I always love a good starburst, so I got out my Heidi Swapp Sunburst mask and traced random pieces of paper and then cut them out and pieced them together to make this starburst. When I was finished with the big pieces, something felt like it was still missing, so I cut these little black and white strips and added them for a finishing touch!
Some close ups and details:
I used Crate Paper's Flea Market collection for this layout. When I first saw this line I never thought I'd use it because it's quite feminine, but I fell in love with it and decided that I don't care! I'm going to use it on my boy's pages anyway!! lol There's a lot of it that can be used for boys pages too anyway!
I was inspired by Two Peas in a Bucket's February Mood Board on Pinterest for parts of this layout. I got the idea for the caption on the picture from it.
The title is one of the exclusive cut files you get with your Paper Bakery subscription. I looove this file!
I wanted them to look like these:
So I cut the title with vellum and stamped it with black Staz On with a Tim Holtz stamp to create a similar effect. I'm really happy with how they turned out.
The doily was die cut with my Cameo using the POW glitter paper. I LOOOVE that paper!! And it cuts brilliantly with the Cameo!! The best part is that the glitter doesn't fall off all over the place, so you don't get all glittery!
Well, I'm off to bed. We don't have any school tomorrow, so Ethan and I will be working hard making his hockey team's tournament poster tomorrow! The team with the best poster wins a pizza party!! Talk about pressure!! lol I have some pretty cool ideas for it though...hopefully it turns out! I will definitely take pictures to show you all when I'm done!!
