1. Die-Cut Paper: is it just me or is this stuff kinda hard to use?
2. Enlarged Photo(s): sometimes a photo says more than words ever can. In that case, I like it super-sized.
3. Tags: Easy to use. Easy to embellish.
4. Stamping: Gotta love the versatility of stamps.
Here's my page:
A interesting tidbit about this photo: it was taken approximately 30 minutes after her birth by her adoring mother. Yes, that would be me, new mother and photographer extraordinaire. I am (obviously) still quite proud of the fact that I managed to give birth and take a decent photo all in one day.
I've had this photo out on my desk for just about two years now. It migrated during the studio move, and has now finally made its home on a layout. YAY! It was obviously waiting for the perfect die-cut paper.
I used an Avery tag as a template for my tags because it would have been just too easy to use the plain ol' Avery tags. Plus, my stamping showed up a little better on the lighter colored tags. I embellished each tag with a stamped floral frame from the Frames and Messages set by Hero Arts. The title was printed on the top two by running them through a printer, and the tag on the bottom was stamped with a sentiment from the Thinking of You Messages set. And of course, you saw my little friend the Heart Winged Butterfly. He'll be making another appearance here, I am sure. On this layout, he was stamped with pigment ink and colored with Crayola pencils, which I blended with Mona Lisa odorless paint thinner.
