a few recent layouts

I thought I would share with you a few recent layouts I made for page calls using some Epiphany Crafts and We R Memory Keepers products.  My boys recently were asking why I make so many layouts about the girls, and not so many about them.  I really need to make more about them--my album is girl-heavy that's for sure!  I told them that they always give me a hard time when I want to take their pictures, and maybe that's why.  Hopefully they won't harass me next time I point my lens at them. =)

Anyway...this first layout is about the girls' homemade valentines.  I used the WRMK Funfetti line and the Sew Easy banner head, which I love.  I ran it over the background cardstock, as well as both of the patterned papers I made the banner out of.  I then cut out the banner pieces from the patterned papers using the Sew Easy holes as guides and added them to the background cardstock before I stitched the banner.  Make sense?  Then I added some smiley face hearts to the banner using the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Heart 14 and bubble caps.


This next one is about a fun date my daughter and I went on to see a sneak preview of Harry Potter 7:part 2.  Her orthodontist rented out 2 theaters for his patients to see it before it came out.  We had a blast!  I tried to capture the whole movie theme by punching squares out of my black background cardstock to represent the notches in a strip of film.  I used the new WRMK Spookville line because the colors worked really well with the photos.  I added the smaller cell phone photos to the digital filmstrip frame before printing them.  I also used some super old Making Memories metal alpha tags--they worked perfectly for this.  Glad I held on to them. =)


Thanks for peeking, and happy scrapping!
