Well, so much for having more time once the kids went back to school! It would probably help if I didn't get sick right away, but so be it. I did have time to make a layout a bit ago that I'd like to share. I belong to a fun group on Facebook called Croppin' Chicks, and they are posting sketches weekly for us to work with. This one is from a couple of weeks ago, and I really liked the design. I also got to scrap my kitty-boys, which is super fun because not only are they really cute, they are both "neutral" colored so I can use whatever paper I want!
I actually decided to use the For Always paper pack and MyStickease because I thought the black & white designs would look really cool with the kitties. I decided to use the Lagoon (yes, that blue is bright turquoise - I need a better setup for taking scrappy pics!) and Honey colors from the kit along with some matching embellishments. I decided to add a ruffle with the For Always Textiles, which might be a little girly for boy cats, but hey, they are cats, what do they know?
I thought this sticker was the perfect title for my layout! These two boys would not be nearly as happy without each other. I added a couple of colored sparkles for interest.
Here's the fabric ruffle. I just laid down some Scor Tape and finger-ruffled the fabric strips I cut. I left the edges unfinished, and covered the top edge with a border sticker popped up on 3-D foam adhesive.
My embellishments are just stickers from the MyStickease pack layered with 3-D embellishments for dimension.
The sketch called for strip journaling, which is not usually my thing, but worked well for this layout where I didn't have a lot to say.
