Our newest Title Builder collection, Title Builder Vol. 3 was designed with summer moments in mind, and when these stamps, wood veneers and acrylic are paired with our August kit and extras, the creative possibilities are endless, as Amanda-jayne Baldwin is illustrating for us with a new scrapbook layout. Let’s take a look at what she created!
Hi, friends! It’s Amanda here, and today I’m sharing more everyday documenting with the fabulous August 2019 Kit and extras, along with the incredible Title Builder Vol. 3 Stamp! It’s no secret that I adore Elle’s Studio stamps, but honestly, the Title Builder Stamps are a true favorite of mine! Here’s yet another reason why…
Supplies | August 2019 Kit, Be Yourself Phrase Stickers, Make Me Smile Cork Circles, Back to School Puffy Stickers, Acrylic Sunglasses, Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, Sunshine 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Title Builder Vol. 3 Wood Veneer, Title Builder Vol. 3 Stamp, Highlights From Today Stamp
Isn’t this the sweetest summer page?! See what I mean about the everyday documenting? This was no milestone moment—just a simple capture of my two darlings exploring the rock pools, but one that I still wanted to record and ‘keep’ forever! A summer moment that truly was the best fun ever!
Here’s a closer look at my layout:
Every element of this page was inspired by that sweet photo! I often create pages where the photo is the focus, and chief story teller of the design. From the colors in my children’s clothing on this warm summer’s day at the rock beach, to the loving moment that they shared—it all inspired this fun summer page!
To be completely honest, my 12″ x 12″ scrapbook layout really began as a pocket page! I started with the 3″ x 4″ “more of this” tag from the August 2019 Kit. Apart from it’s coordinating color, I also loved the pennant icon that the sentiment was printed on. So, I used a scalpel knife and fussy cut it to create a photo clip to insert my photo under. This is a really simple touch that brings attraction to my photo! I then embellished this photo tag with the “Best Friends” Back to School Puffy Sticker and the “summer” Title Builder Vol. 3 Wood Veneer.
Pocket page scrappin’ is so much fun, but we all know that I’m a 12″ x 12″ girl at heart, so I just couldn’t stop there!
Next, I created a banner from white cardstock, and repeat stamped the word “LOVE” from the Title Builder Vol. 3 Stamp. I stamped this subtitle in an ombre style and added faux stitching around the edges with black pen. The banner shape compliments the pennant photo clip and added an extra point of interest to draw attention to my photograph. To connect the two main pieces of my layout together, I embellished both with a pair of red sunglasses: one from the Acrylic Sunglasses, and the other fussy cut from a tag in the August Kit.
It’s at this point where I actually decided to create a 12″ x 12″ page. I trimmed 1″ off of my white cardstock base to allow for the paper trim on the left hand side. I butted two 1/2″ strips of patterned paper from the Sunshine 6 x 6 Paper Stack to form the 12″ length. I did this twice, and then machine stitched all pieces onto the underside of the white cardstock. I also layered the polka dot striped patterned paper through the left hand side of my page, at the 4″ mark, to anchor both my photo and banner.
Now for the super fun part: adding the embellishments!!!
I added a a good scattering of hearts, including the stamped hearts and “LOVE” word from the Highlights From Today Stamp, watercolor splatters, the fantastic Make Me Smile Cork Circles and few sequins from my stash. I also stamped “this is the best fun ever” with the Title Builder Vol. 3 Stamp, which is just my favorite!!! I LOVE it!
There you have it! Documenting the everyday never looked so good! I hope my layout has inspired you to get creating with the fabulous August kit and add-ons, along with the Title Builder Vol. 3 collection!
Thanks so much for visiting! Until next time, happy arty days!
