Turquoise – Layout 10
Happy 4th of July everyone! I love that today’s steal, the Studio Calico Memoir collection, happens to be on this day of celebrating. You might be asking what a beautiful collection of purples, yellows, blues and greens has to do with the day of red, white and blue. I’ll tell you! For me, it means the last 4th of July I’ll be able to celebrate with my brother and his family before they move to New Zealand. This collection could not be more perfect to scrap a photo we recently took with my entire family.
I absolutely adore Studio Calico. In fact, I dare say it could easily be competing for my number one favorite manufacturer. I love the graphic feel that is meshed with such a clean feel.
I had a lot of fun pulling apart the different elements included in the collection.
I knew I wanted to add a little bit of misting to my project so I flipped over the die cut paper that comes with the collection and used it as a mask on my background paper. I then cut up the same piece of paper and use it as the frame for my photo to continue the feel of the design.
I had fun doing a little fussy cutting and cut out some of the cog shapes and circles to create my embellishment cluster.
I added some of the ingenious “Scraps” and some of the chipboard for my title and my layout was complete!
I love that the Memoir collection helped me to preserve this photo. It realistically could be the last time that we are ever all together, as my dad suffers from poor health. So just a little reminder to you all, don’t hesitate to take photos, even if your son ends up pulling a silly face like mine did.
