Suz has combined gorgeous Tinkering Ink Botanical Bliss monograms on this layout with an eclectic mix of products including SEI Poppy and Sassafras Lass Happy Place in her effort to reflect her daughters equally eclectic style. She has inked the edges so that they stand out a little more although they contrast beautifully with the deep teal of the SEI Poppy textured cardstock.
Always looking for somewhere new and fun to position her journalling, Suz was thrilled to discover a metallic silver Hambly journalling rubon fitted perfectly inside the O.
Working with the Heidi Swapp Monograms was an absolute pleasure for Steph. She loved the way the backs just peeled off so easily and the adhesive stuck firmly to her layout. These monograms were easy to pop out of the packaging and once placed on the layout they immediately looked stunning and colourful.
Mixing the alphabet up with capitals and lower case gave the page a playful look which echoed the subject of a child's layout.
Caz has used one of the large Tim Holtz Grungeboard monogram @ signs to stand in for an 'a' in this layout. She painted it and then added some of the new Pink Paislee"Pixie Stix glitter to the paint while it was wet. This tied the monogram in perfectly with the gorgeous glitter accents in the Mia range by Crate Paper.
This is the first time Caz has made a round layout and she is thrilled with the way that it turned out.
Nic created this simple but cute little wallhanging for her daughter from Cosmo Cricket Bucknaked chipboard button letters. She topped them with the matching die-cut button covers from the "Hello Sunshine", punched a few extra holes with her trusty Crop-A-Dile and laced together using Heidi Swapp tulle, She finished my attached a stamped butterfly, Cosmo stickers and some Heidi Swapp chandelier crystals.
Though Suz generally despairs of his choice of reading material, she is delighted that her 7 year old son can so often be found with his nose in a book, and so she whipped up this fabulous fast and easy bookmark for him. BasicGrey's Obscure line and Elbow monograms are perfect for seven year old boy's bookmarks and simply adhered to a sliver of Hambly transparency can apparently be met with an 'ohh sick!' which apparently is praise indeed from said seven year old!
Every now and then Suz is consumed with guilt over throwing lots of her children's 'art' away - you can't keep every morsel they create, can you? But you can keep some, and this is a gorgeous little way of doing it - just collect little drawings, notes, cards and scrapbook 'pages' that your child creates and punch holes in the side.
To form the cover of the book Suz has used an oldie but a goodie - the original BasicGrey chipboard monograms. Big and beautiful they are as timeless on a scrapbook page as they are as a mini book cover as Suz shows here. She has covered these in mixed up ranges of BasicGrey die cut monograms, and adhered them to a Scrapping Clearly acrylic mini album page which makes the perfect cover for a book of scraps. A second acrylic page stamped with the date goes on the back and your book - a little time capsule of your child's activities - is complete.
