Day: September 22, 2008

I learnt something today….. No actually I was probably ‘reminded’ of something I already knew…… How hopeless I am at trying to photograph my layouts!

Yes- I managed to quickly whip up two pages using the Stampin’ Up! Crew Kids Boy Simply Scrappin’ Set and a few other Stampin’ Up Products.  Please excuse the poor photography and very crooked cropping- bear with me- I’ll get there… eventually! 

Both pages are very simple- something anyone could whip up without too much trouble.

For the layouts I actually used a sketch I have used several times before (with non-Stampin’ Up! products) C shared the sketch with me but I’m not sure where it originally came from and it has been altered and modified so much that I doubt it looks like the original sketch anyway!   The background cardstock colour is Pumpkin Pie and the patterned paper and cardstock stickers are from the Crew Kids Boy Simply Scrappin’ Set.  The only thing I have added is a strip of Wild wasabi double stitched ribbon and tab using the Stampin’ Up! Round Tab Punch .  When I pulled out the colours they seemed too bright together but I figured that a page about one little boy with a whole lot of energy needed to have bright colours.


The second page also makes use of the colours from the Crew Kids Boy Kit (Basic Gray, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie).  I have also used stamps from the Always Set (from the Spring Mini Catalogue) The Stampin’ Up! Round Tab Punch has been used again on this page.  Some ‘faux stitching’ also features on this page.  I have pierced the paper and then used the White signo gel pen to add lines to make it look like real stitching.   Some of the circles on this page have come from the Blooms Die cuts and others I have punched using the 3.5cm circle punch.  Again- I wasn’t so sure about the colours but I think the wild wasabi works well with the grass, the basic gray works with the fence in the background and I even noticed when assembling the page that there is a bit of pumpkin pie on the attachments of the hose- so perhaps the colour choices weren’t so bad afterall!
