When I get into a scrappy slump, I always turn to sketches. I have a ton on my board through Pinterest. I found this sketch and I loved how this sketched look. I had to use it right away for these photos of my daughter loosing her first tooth.
Look how gorgeous this sketch is from Pagemaps. This site is always full of layouts and you can find just about anything within my board on Pinterest from Pagemaps. I did change it little bit with the title and journaling as I turned it into another photo. But almost everything else was setup perfectly and consistent with the sketch.
I love this little banner I have used because it gorgeous for one, but it is like getting a ribbon when winning a race. Since she lost her first tooth, I felt it was very fitting for this layout. I also added machine stitching along the edge of the layout.
Look at how those stitches look and of course, I have added some more stickers, and distressing all my edges. I also made sure I added little splatters at the end along with some journaling. I did also do something different on the right hand side of the layout by tearing the White Card Stock and placed the striped paper to make sure it is a 12 X 12 layout again. Then placed my journaling on that side instead inside where the second photo is.
I loved how this turned out and here is full layout and process video!
Stay Scrappy Friends!
