Project - Shape Up Your Scrapbooking : 1st Rice Cereal
Even the simplest of shapes - a circle - can be turned into an interesting design by folding over the edges and attaching them side-by-side! A large die cut turns into a mask by spraying over it with mist. And die cuts trimmed in half become interesting shapes to adorn layout edges. I'd been saving these pictures of my daughter Jane and her first experience with rice cereal for just the right paper line - I was ecstatic when I saw the brand new My Girl line by American Crafts - could the colors match any better? From the pink hearts on her bib to the blue of her Bumbo and the gray shadows - all of these colors are found in My Girl. It was meant to be. By adding a sprinkling of jewels the viewer's eye is directed all around the page. A ribbon bow, wooden veneer heart, scalloped border punching, puffy flower stickers, and glittered die cuts complete the girly theme.
Journaling says: The first time you ate rice cereal you did great! You were chomping and swallowing like a pro! You seemed to like it, despite what your facial expressions say. Love you!
How to: Die cut a large doily from scrap cardstock, set it over a gray cardstock layout base, spray over the doily with white mist, then remove the doily mask. Punch 30 circles from double-sided patterned papers, fold the left and right sides of each circle towards the middle, then align the shapes in three rows across the top of the layout. Stitch through a few of the circles and top others with puffy flower stickers. Create a title/embellishment cluster on the top right corner. Add four small photos below the circles border; punch a scalloped border across the bottom of one of the photos. Journal on a wooden veneer card then tuck it under one of the photos and embellish with a ribbon bow, scalloped border sticker, flower sticker, and a glittered flower cut out from the page of a mini album. Trim a flower die cut and add it to the bottom left corner topped with a fabric label sticker with the date stamped on it. Sprinkle pink jewels across the layout.
