DRCC Session #4 Class 7

I enjoyed making this layout. I found that the paper and the fun that my hubby and son were having, just added to the whimsy of this page. I used the Moonlight paper pack, which is more for halloween pictures.  

I stamped the owls directly onto the page  and then stamped them again on a scrap piece of paper. I then cut out the eyes and popped them up to make them stand out more. 

I added a beak and some ears to the O's in hoot to bring in another aspect of the owls and then matted the word to bring it out even more. I think that's my favorite part of this layout. I hope you like it too!

DRCC Session 4 Class #6

I saw this layout and thought that the combination of the many patterned papers and the pennant design made this layout so interesting, yet so easy. It did make it a little bit harder to accessorize as I didn't want to make the layout even busier by over embellishing, so I decided to keep the 3D elements fairly simple, but spiced it up a bit with some heat embossing and striped stamping. This is an older paper pack from Making Memories called Spook Alley, but I paired it with CTMH card stock and inks.

I used black heat embossing to stamp these cute little pictures and this adorable saying, then I cut them out and adhered them with 3D foam tape.

To make the title striped, I first inked the word all over in the Sunset colour, if you are using different colours, stamp the lightest colour first. 

I then stamped a portion of the word using the very edge of the Smokey Plum ink pad or darker coloured ink. 

Then I stamped another stripe further up the stamp again, but held the lock with the stamp at an angle. 

I  repeated until I had a few stripes on my word stamp. 

Then I just stamped as normal on to the card stock.

DRCC Session 4 Class #5

I like the simplicity of this layout while still being able to have lots of pictures. It also works really well with the busy Avonlea paper. 

To accentuate the design within the paper, I used a circle punch to cut out some of the circular patterns. I used pearls for the centres and also added bitty pearls to some of the top border pieces as well.
