Ruffles and Clouds

25 Feb

This is one of my new favorite layouts-ruffles rock!  🙂  Also, I am in total LOVE with my new cloud punch.  Who knew a punch could make a person so happy?  🙂

I made this layout after going through Karen Grunberg’s free class on bigpictureclasses.com.  She really made me think about the stories I don’t scrap because I don’t like something about the picture, etc.  So, while rummaging through my picture stash, I spotted this picture and knew I wanted to scrap it.  This is a story I probably wouldn’t have ever told, so THANK YOU Karen!

This layout is also for Paper Variety-week 22 (thepapervariety.blogspot.com.)  Their challenge this week was to use stitching (machine or faux) on a project.

Today You Layout

Supplies: Patterned Paper: The Girls’ Paperie; Letter Stickers: Pink Paislee; Rose Ribbon: American Crafts Dear Lizzie; White Pen: Uniball; Black Pen: Signo; Ruffle Ribbon: unknown

So, in making this layout, it is all about the new big girl bed, so I decided to make it look like there was a ruffly bedskirt on the bottom of the layout.  I layered three layers of some gorgeous pink ruffle ribbon on the bottom, and added the rose ribbon on top.  I used my cloud punch to cover the top of the layout.  All of the solid color clouds were made from pink paint chips.  I used my white pen to add stitching on the paint chip clouds for added definition and to match the lines on the patterned paper clouds.  I also added more “stitching” to those clouds too.  Love how it all turned out!!  Enjoy!
