Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great summer so far! We are melting in the Texas heat, lol!
Today, I have two scrapbook layouts featuring my favorite scrapbook brand, Dear Lizzy by American Crafts. The newest line from Dear Lizzy is called Fine and Dandy, and I love it! Love the colors, the birthday and animal themes, and the gold accents. *BTW, this post is not sponsored, I just really love the line.
First up is “Lucky Ducky.” At my youngest’s preschool, they celebrated summer birthdays at the end of the year, and my little July gal was over the moon with joy. She got to wear a birthday crown and be the lucky ducky (class helper and line leader) all day. She wanted a cookie cake with a cute duckie, since their class mascot is a duck, and it was a real hit with the kids and the teachers. Woo hoo, no leftovers!
I have done circle layouts like this many times before, but since I have a die cut machine and circle dies, this layout was a breeze. Before I had a die cutting machine, I had just a few circle punches, and for the rest, I would trace different sized circles using cups, coins, paint bottles, etc., then cut them out by hand.
Next up is “TOOTH omg.” My older daughter fell in the cafeteria (they were having field day activities in there since it was raining), and the nurse called for me to pick her up. When I got to the nurses office, my jaw dropped…her tooth was half gone! We scrambled to find a dentist office open on a Friday afternoon (Did you know most dentists close at 2:00 pm on Fridays? I didn’t.), but we got it temporarily fixed. Thank goodness, because her dance recital was the next weekend. Whew!
For this layout, I wanted giant letters cut out from the gorgeous patterned paper, all found in the 6×6 Dear Lizzy Fine and Dandy paper pad. On my computer in word, I typed out tooth in a huge font. I printed it out, cut out the letters, and traced them on the patterned paper. Then, I cut out the letters on the patterned paper and attached them to white card stock, and sewed them down for more interest. I then attached the whole card stock to my layout using foam tape to make it a focal point. This was a simple layout focusing on the story, the photos and the giant letters. I love how it turned out!
Thanks for stopping by, and happy Thursday!
