Inspired by the July Sketch contest by My Creative Sketches, I have decided to do my first ever 12" x 12" layout. Not just because of the chance to win the wonderful kit, but to kick start my life in scrapbooking.
As a mother of 2 lovely girls, aged 1 & 4 respectively, I think I should start my first project with "The SISTERS" as the theme.
I picked a pictures taken last month when the elder sister Anson was carrying her little sister Hannah on her lap.
I've also combined a few different techniques including stamping and embossing, punching, die-cutting using Big-shot ~
These two hearts were die-cut using Big-shot + Hero Art Heart frame die; then stamped with the Hero Art Four hearts cling stamps - The stamps & die are compatible with each other. The hearts were then embossed in Champagne gold and Clear respectively.
I've also handmade a ribbon flower learned from a tutorial by Delaina Burns, Design Team member of My Creative Scrapbook. Plus, punched out two little sakuras.
The beautiful Silver glitter alphabets stickers from American Crafts.
I have downloaded a beautiful, vintage, poem printable from a website.
