The One with July American Crafts Layouts

Here are the two layouts I made for my monthly American Crafts assignment.

Love Birds Maren & Logan

Tips: I've been watching Lois and Clark - The New Adventures of Superman on DVD the past week or so while I've scrapped. "Super" fun! I'm in charge of making their wedding book so I have access to their engagement photos. Must scrap a few of course! These are a couple of my favorite shots. I took the yellow from Maren shoes and went with that for the theme.

Journaling says: Maren and Logan are set to be married in the Salt Lake temple next month and we're not bringing the bird so hopefully nothing will stand in the way from us attending the sealing! (One may recall I missed my cousin Sara Jayne's wedding last summer because my bird flew outside and got stuck high up in a tree...)

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, patterned fabric, brads (glitter, jewel, pearl), buttons, letter stickers, dimensional bird stickers, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Paper cutter, scissors: Fiskars

Mom & Eric

Tips: I went with an all blue monochromatic theme for this layout and die cut lots of concentric circles from cardstock and patterned paper for some flowers. I scattered brads, buttons, and badges around the flowers and tied a blue ribbon bow to embellish.

Journaling says: Words can't describe how much I love this picture of my mom and little brother, but I'll try :) I love how young my mom looks. I love the smile on her face. I love the look of adoration in her eyes. I love Eric's little grin and how content he looks. This picture fills me with hope. It's almost like a glimpse into my near future. I hope I look at my son the same way my mom is looking at Eric. I hope we can be this happy and content together. I want to be just like my mom!

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, brads (glitter, jewel, pearl, regular), badges, buttons, ribbon, letter stickers, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Die cut machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft; Scalloped circle dies: Nestabilities by Spellbinders; Scalloped border punch, paper cutter, scissors: Fiskars

Paige! You are a girl of GREAT talent. (I'm sure you've heard of that before, but YOU ARE!) To say that I always love everything that you make is an understatement! It is so amazing how you are able to incorporate so many different patterned paper into your layouts. You are such an inspiration to me! (:

I love these! I love the touches of dimension and depth you made by curling up the ends of the radiating pieces of paper on the first layout!
