I have some more layouts to share.
For the following two layouts I took the materials with me to the LSS for the fortnightly session. I planned to complete two more layouts using the “stitch and rip” technique I mentioned in the previous post, however, when I started pushing the paper around- my choice of papers, etc wouldn’t have ‘worked’. I still included some machine stitching though- and even managed to change the machine settings from straight stitch to ‘zig zag’ all on my own! (No mean feat for a dreadful sewer like me!)
The starting point of this layout was the chipboard “peas in a pod” that I had sitting in my stash and I thought that they would suit the journalling I had in mind. The pieces came raw- ready to colour and assemble. I had a few hiccups trying to colour the chipboard to match my layout-but in the end managed to get it to come together
Journalling reads….. “I’ve heard it all- twinnies, double trouble, it takes two, twinadoes (tornadoes), what a pair, twin terror alert, partners in crime, double duty, have fear- the twins are here, seeing double, two peas in a pod! Nevermind all those sayings! Look at those little faces! We just think you are adorable ~5 months old”
These two layouts are an example of how I will take one photo and scrap separate layouts for each child’s album- in this case one more feminine for Erin and one to suit a baby boy for Adam.
