Hello Scrappers! Here’s my latest design team layout for the Scraptastic Club Design Team. For this layout I used the June 2016 Sweet Jane Kit. This week I teamed up with Jill Sprott, a fellow Scraptastic Design Team Member, for the weekly Pinterest Inspiration challenge. Here’s our inspiration piece:
And here’s my take:
These photos were taken on the 4th of July and feature my brother Love and my kiddo Corinne. We had my mom and brother over for a BBQ dinner and Corinne had a lot of fun playing with her Uncle Love Bug. Yes, his name is Love and yes, we call him Love Bug or Love Buggy (some childhood nicknames never go away)!
I enjoy watching my brother and daughter play together. Love and I are 15 years apart – the way he plays with Corinne is the same way he played with me! Ever the joker, tossing me around (I’m sure he probably dropped me at some point 🙂 ), calling me names…typical big brother shenanigans. My brother is so good with kids! He’s a great father…both of his children are grown so having Corinne around brings him a ton of joy!
Using a circle stencil by American Crafts and distress ink by Tim Holtz, I created this awesome background as the base for my layout. Next, I wanted to use the exclusive Scraptastic “love” stencil that came with the kit as part of the title. I used a paper piercer to poke the holes – tracing the word “love”, then I did a simple back stitch using blue sewing floss. This process took me over 30 minute to complete (mainly because I suck at sewing). Overall, I’m impressed with the look!
I used a variety of embellishment from the kit – die cut flowers and arrows, acrylic hearts, phrase stickers, and an exclusive flare. This entire kit contains exclusive Scraptastic Club items, with the exception of the enamel dots by Fancy Paints Designs, sewing floss by Amy Tangerine, distress ink by Tim Holtz, and mist by Heidi Swapp.
