'If the Shirt Fits' Scrapbook Layout
Cut 'n' Boss Design Team: Suzanna Lee Cycle 12
My second project for the month of January for you! I went with my old standby this time. Needed it done quick and layouts are the quickest for me! I am one of several chaperones for a 10 and under group of 100 swimmers this weekend going down to NC for 3 nights and 3 days of swimming. Wish me luck!!
Hi there Craftwell fans! I'm back to my old bag of tricks with a good old fashioned layout this go around. While decorating my planner last week was fun, I really just need to get some of the millions of pictures I have scrapped and in the album. I worry more about forgetting the emotions of the moment and the journaling than anything else. So this week we have a picture of my son the snowman. He is a bean pole, a very tall bean pole. Finding clothing that fits his extremely slender and long body is next to impossible. This shirt came all the way from the UK!
The background paper (white) is embossed using my Craftwell Cut'N Boss and the Modern Stripe embossing folder. I love the subtle combination of the circles within the patterned paper with the stripe of the embossing folder.
The whole 8.5x11 sheet of paper fit perfectly in the embossing folder and I was able to trim it down some in order to have the blue frame behind it. It really needed that support color to pop the T-shirt in the picture.
You can see that subtle emboss better in the close up picture above.
My Cut'N Boss also came in super handy for cutting this snowflake border die cut used towards the bottom of the layout. I used the usual thin wafer die sandwich;
From Bottom to Top
I got the perfect clean cut with the rounded edges that I love from a die cut! One of the many advantages of a die cut machine. Even better, I didn't have to crank the crank, just insert sandwich and the machine does the work for you!
Thanks for stopping in today!
