Welcome to another week of Memory Keeping Monday! Today I’m sharing this beautiful You Are My Sunshine layout featuring one of my all time favourite photos of my daughter. The photo was taken on my brothers wedding day.
She was their flower girl. I remember being so worried about how it would go because she had never met them before and she didn’t like to smile for photos taken by anyone but mom or dad. The worry was for nothing she did amazingly well and had so much fun.
I know that I’ve scrapbooked this photo before as part of my brother’s wedding pages but I just had to do it again to include in her album. Does anyone else scrapbook their favourite photos more than once or am I the only one?
On to the layout…
This layout came about when I was looking for the cut file that I was using for this months scrapbook class. I caught a glimpse of a sunflower cut file in my library and knew that I had a partial piece of the fabulous bumblebee grid dsp from the World of Good dsp left and decided to cut the sunflower to use later. I ended up pulling out that sunflower on Saturday during the Mini Retreat Virtual crop.
The layout came together pretty quickly, the most time consuming part was backing the cut file. I wanted a bit of a distressed feel to the layout so I used my scissors to roughen up the edges of the white card stock and then sponged with some soft suede.
The title is from the Ronda Wade’s million dollar stamp set – Ridiculously Awesome. This is such a great set for scrapbooking! Nice big greetings, many of which can be used for titles. I just love it.
Now to decide what cut file I’ll include in next months scrapbook class!
In Good Taste Layout of the Month Class
I’ll have peaks of a few of the layouts later this week on my Facebook page. Registration closes for that class pretty quickly. Let me know if you’d like to participate. Here are the details:
Our July layout of the month class will focus on the In Good Taste suite from the annual catalogue. This suite of products is so BEAUTIFUL and so versatile! We’ll be creating four 12″ x 12″ layouts.
Class fee of $40 ($35 for club members) includes:
- 1/2 pkg of the In Good Taste DSP (12 sheets)
- 1/3 pkg of the In Good Taste Wood Elements
- A themed die cut
- All additional supplies needed to create the layouts
- PDF with supply list, photos, measurements and a link to a video with any tips & tricks on how the layouts come together.
On Thursday July 16th we’ll meet on Zoom for some crafting time. You can choose to create your projects then or simply use it as crop time and work on your own projects. This is just an opportunity for us to craft together.
Anyone across Canada can participate. Ask me how!
Payment & registration is due by June 29th.
Have a creative day!
