I had a great time scrapbooking last night. I carved away 5 hours last night, and got two layouts completed to document 1 story. I am such a slow scrapbooker. Studio Calico had some great challenges going on, and I used 3 of the challenges in my layouts. On the 12 x 12 layout I used a stamp set that I bought 1 year ago and never inked up (Challenge 2) and used a mint, pink, navy, and gold color scheme (Challenge 1) I first started by adhering the strips of patterned paper, stamping in gold and mermaid, and then added the stitching.
The 6 x 12 layout tells the story behind all of the photos. I used Washi tape 3 ways (Challenge 3) on this small layout: as a background, on the photo, and for the triangle shapes. After adhering everything, except the photo, and added splashes of black ink.
Happy Belated National Scrapbook Day!
