Countdown to Spring/Summer Idea Book ~ 4

Welcome back to my countdown to the Spring/Summer Idea Book.  We are only 4 days away until you can order the new products.

Today I will be showcasing two new products Lagoon Zipper Lace Z1917 and White Marquee Enamel Shapes Z1961.

Lagoon Zipper Lace White Marquee Enamel Shapes

I have been doing a one page scrapbook page representing each of my son’s first 12  months.  On each month I choose one 5 X 7 photo and highlight the milestones from that month.  Since I have started designing my layouts and having my photos printed using Studio J, my layouts are finished before I get my photos.  I really like doing it this way so when I am designing the layout if I need a photo that is smaller or larger then I just pick the size using the no limits layout in Studio J.  Before I would pick mostly 4 X 6 photos and then realize I wanted it in a different size like 3 x 3 or 2 x 2 and the photo would not work so I would have to have it reprinted anyway.  Now I don’t waste with printing photos I don’t use.

11 months using zipper lace

With this layout I used several paper packs – Later Sk8er, Surfs Up, Footloose and Chantilly.  I also used the stamp set One-Way Border stamp set C1561.  To create the splatter I used Lagoon, Sweet Leaf and Outdoor Denim re-inkers.  I used the techniques that are described at the end of the Artbooking Made Easy video ~ Love, Love, Love which I posted on my blog here.  Instead of using a dauber I used Q-tips so the dots could be smaller and then use a little flick to the Q-tip which was heavily soaked to create the smaller splatters.

Happy Crafting!
