Today, I'm super excited to bring you my first official project for Practical Scrappers. I have joined the design team at this great website with an amazing group of talented scrappers. I'm so thrilled to be working with all of them!
First up from me for this month is a layout based on this great sketch.
I knew I wanted to use my January kit for this sketch -- and luckily I had even included doilies, which worked perfect for this sketch.
Oh my goodness, I so miss my boys being this little! My twin boys are now age 10, so this photo is extra sweet to me. They were all bundled up for their very first trek out into the snow for this photo.
I layered up two doilies and spritzed them with Heidi Swapp's Color Shine mist in Tinsel and the Mr. Huey's Shine mist from Studio Calico to give them each a bit of shine. I then embossed some blue cardstock with the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder and punched out a few scallop circles. These little scallop circles served as a great spot to place these adorable stamped/die cut/colored Winter Sparrows from Lawn Fawn.
I just stamped each birdie, then colored it in with EK Success colored pencils to match my layout. Then I used washi tape to hold each die in place over the bird and die cut them with my Sizzix Big Shot.
I love how they turned out...
I placed each bird on top of a glittered snowflake (Recollections) for extra sparkle -- with a pop-dot behind each bird to give them more dimension.
Finally, I added my title in white glittered Thickers and a tiny date tag punch to finish it off. Love...
Be sure to head over to Practical Scrappers to see all the other designers' versions of the sketch. You will love the inspiration you find over there. Until next time...
