Here is a 12 x 12 layout I created for my friend's scrapbook store. It is a bit busy and not much room for a photograph but with bunnies this cute! who needs them? LOL Once my "Sample layout" is complete I cut all the elements to size for the page and packaged them up for her as kits. I include a full color placement guide and brief instructions.
We live in a resort community here in northwestern Wisconsin where everywhere you are is a "stones throw" away from a beautiful lake! Just after Memorial Day through Labor Day our little town is flooded with folks coming to the area. We get a lot of people from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area as well as a lot of folks from Chicago and parts of Indiana on their way to their cabin or enjoying time away in the plethora of vacation homes for rent in the area. We are blessed to live here all year long but businesses, such as my friends, really look forward to the busy summer days when the store is busting with gals wanting to spend money *wink* on the new products she offers. While she is already selling the kits I'm creating as soon as I bring them in - our REAL goal is to build up a large selection and supply of the kits for the vacationers we know will be arriving - that is if the SNOW ever melts!! : )
I will list my supplies in paragraph form so that it is a bit easier to follow. The striped background paper is called "Stripetopia" by Reminisce. I layered a plain piece of white cs next that I scored with my "Pal" - just random lines to give it a little lift : ) Both the "Bunny Collage" strip and the pink heart paper, "Baby Girl Hearts", (with the fabulous pearlized finish) are Reminice products. Mint photo frame and polka dot photo place holder are from the same two sided paper by KaiserCraft.
Photo frame and the journaling notebook paper were cut on my Cricut using CTMH Artbooking. The notebook lines were stamped using the coordinating Artbooking stamp set. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and Spellbinder dies for the hearts. Buttons and ribbon from my stash and finally the cute little bunny from PTI Hippity Hoppity stamp and die set.
I turned to the internet for design help and printed off a design sketch. The creator's name is not on the sketch so it is lost forever : ) But credit where credit is due - SOMEONE! - not me designed the sketch I followed. : )
Whew!! a whole lotta tlking for just a little project : )
Have a wonderful day. thank you so much for stopping by!!
