Sorry for my absence...been going through of a bit of a creative block lately. I think its the weather...I just want to sit in a blanket and read. Thankfully spring is around the corner. And to get me in the spring mood, I'm sharing some layouts I created for The Scrapbooking Studio design team with October Afternoon's Farm Girl collection.
I am a huge fan of October Afternoon and love working with their lines!
This first layout is called "Goose Party"....Hailey was just a little girl in these photos. My mom had taken her down to the riverfront to feed the geese and Hailey commented that there was a "goose party" going on.
I used letter stickers from the Simple Stories' SNAP line stitched through. I also used my circle punch to create negative space and placed patterned paper behind. I accented with some circle pieces of the Sew Fun Banners, as well as and coordinating flair.
At the top of my layout, I cut these circles from a Silhouette file and again added pieces from the Sew Fun Banners and flair
Here, a few pieces of the "Doo Dads" including a fun pink library card for journaling. I also added a milk cap from The Scrapbooking Studio's flea market!
Honestly, it has taken me a long time to want to scrapbook these pictures..I have a few that come from a time period right before Mom got sick. I don't know why I've held on to them. I told my sister I've almost been afraid to scrap them just because this is it. These are the last pictures I have of my mom being alive (except for when she was dying). I don't know how to explain it. Anyway, I'm trying to get over this.
Ok, on to the next layout which I titled "Cow Kisses". Again, Hailey is so little....4 almost 5 yrs old. She still had to carry a Webkinz everywhere she went.
Using some of the cardstock stickers as well as the journaling spot. I added a button with some bakers twine from Whisker Graphics. The little "milk" circle is from the Sew Fun Banner. I love how you can take pieces from the sheet and use them however you want.
Again, I took pieces of the Sew Fun Banner and layered them at the top of my layout.
Cute cow flair with a wooden veneer arrow from Studio Calico. My title letters are from American Crafts and Sassafras Lass.
I'll be back again soon to share a cute mini I did with the Farm Girl line! Meanwhile, I plan on crafting in my scraproom most of this weekend! Thanks for reading!
