The One with June 2012 American Crafts Layouts

I sat down to scrap and Fox was being such a good boy playing with his toys (that NEVER happens!) that I was able to get a record four pages done in a day!
27

Journaling says: Every year keeps getting better and better! I love my life and my family and my jobs and my pets :)

How to: Trace a plate onto cardstock then use an Xacto knife to cut it into triangle wedges. Cover each wedge with strips of patterned paper. Adhere the wedges back into a circle on a pink cardstock layout base, removing one of the wedges so there can be a little gap between each piece. Drop dark blue spray mist across the top right and bottom left corners then embellish with butterflies punched from dark blue patterned paper, jewels, and pearls. Adhere a photo to the middle and frame the left and right edges with scalloped borders punched from white cardstock. Create a layered embellishment from a round die cut, pinwheel, number stickers, and a baker's twine bow. Write journaling a journaling spot, place the year using number stickers on a label sticker, and group them all on the bottom right side.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, stickers (journaling spot, label, numbers, pinwheel), round die cut, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Baker's twine: The Twinery; Pearls, jewels: K & Company; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Punches: American Crafts (scalloped border), Martha Stewart Crafts (butterflies); Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

DJ FOX

Journaling says: We put Chris' massive headphones on Fox to see what he'd do and he LOVED them! He walked around like he was so cool so we call him DJ Fox.

How to: Die cut three large stars from a white cardstock background. Trace the cut out stars onto scrap cardstock and cut them out slightly larger. Cover each scrap star with wedges of patterned paper then adhere them behind the layout. Sew around each star to secure them in place. Layer a large and small photo (the same one) on the bottom right corner. Die cut stars from kraft cardstock, stitch around some of them, and adhere one on each patterned paper star, create the title on another, write journaling on one, and stamp the date on another. Adhere the kraft stars on the layout as shown. Top the kraft stars on the patterned paper stars with a large button. Drop brown spray mist on the corners then embellish the mist with star confetti punched from white cardstock.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, letter stickers, date stamp, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Buttons: Crate Paper; Star confetti punch: Martha Stewart Crafts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Ink: StazOn; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Die cut machine (Cameo), software (Silhouette): QuicKutz

 SANTA BABY

Journaling says: I thought there was going to be a super long line to see Santa so we go there super early. Turns out we were the only ones. Fox climbed right up onto Santa's lap, they snapped this one pictures, and that was that!

How to: Cut 36 triangles from different pieces of green patterned paper and cardstock then adhere them in a Christmas tree shape on a vintage sheet music paper background. Add a brown woodgrain paper tree trunk and embellish the tree with brads of all varieties, buttons, pearls, and jewels as shown. Place a photo on the right side and create a title at the top. Die cut three snowflakes from kraft cardstock, adhere them on the layout, then outline them with silver glitter glue. Once the glitter glue is dry, journal around two of the snowflakes and top them with chipboard snowflakes.

Supplies: Cardstock, glitter paper, patterned paper, brads (fabric, glitter, holly, jewel, pearl), buttons, chipboard (elf, letters, snowflakes), letter stickers, number rub ons, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Jewels, pearls: K & Company; Glitter glue: Ranger; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Die cut machine (Cameo), software (Silhouette): QuicKutz

I LOVE SEATTLE

Journaling says: Whenever I go home we always have to take a trip into Seattle to eat at Mae Phim, wander around Pike Place, and shop at Pacific Place. I feel like such a tourist in my own city!

How to: Die cut a Seattle skyline from cardstock, place it at the bottom of a ledger paper background, spray over it with aqua mist, remove the template, then stitch around the skyline using yellow floss. Adhere lots of little photos across the top half of the layout then embellish around them with lots of stickers. Create a title and write journaling on the bottom.

Supplies: Patterned paper, fabric brad, stickers (arrows, borders, circles, cloud, flowers, letters, sentiments), date stamp, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Floss: DMC; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Ink: StazOn; Die cut machine (Cameo), software (Silhouette): QuicKutz
 Until next month, or maybe sooner if I get the mojo!

*reyanna klein* said...

As always... amazing. :-) The Seattle one is my favorite. Stitching on the mask?!?! Brilliant! Makes me want to scrap! LOL. :-D

*reyanna klein* said...

Also... could someone explain the FE = Iron Man comment. I'm totally confused. I thought Iron Man's name was Tony Stark? TS? LOL. Am I missing something?

Chris and Paige Evans said...

Reyanna - the symbol for iron on the Periodic Table is Fe, so Fe for iron for Fox Evans = iron man :)
