Controlled by the 3DS – Layout for Pagemaps

For my take on the current Pagemaps sketch (due March 4, 2012), I decided to go with Echo Park’s A Boy’s Life papers, diecut stickers and alpha stickers to compliment these photos of Taten playing his 3DS (which is his current obsession). He’s always insisting that someone or another watch as he plays, whether it’s me, his father or Alex…some has GOT to watch! lol

All the adhesives used were by Helmar (Quick Fix adhesive runner and Zap Dots). Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s the fab sketch I worked with:

Silly Boy – Layout for Creative Scrappers sketch #195

Creative Scrappers posts a new sketch every Sunday and all entries using their sketches are due at the end of the month, so this month, entries are due by February 29th. For my take on the sketch, I used Echo Park’s A Boy’s Life papers, diecut stickers and alphas. All adhesives used were by Helmar (Quick Fix adhesive runner and Zap Dots).

The photos on my layout were taken when Christian was especially fussy one night and out of ideas, Larry sat him in a diaper box that he’d emptied. Amazingly, it worked! Christian sat there fully engaged, occupied and HAPPY for nearly an hour. 😀 Here’s what I came up with for the challenge:

Happy Beauty – Layout for Paper Secrets

I actually started out creating this layout for the Little Yellow Bicycle sketch challenge, but then decided it was better suited for the SYAO sketch #3 at Paper Secrets instead, so to make it work for me, I flipped the sketch. The items from the list that I used for this layout are 3+ flowers, 3+ buttons, 3+ photo corners and twine. The technique I selected was stitching (I hand stitched using the twine). Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:LYB Clothesline pp
LYB Clotheslines felt shapes
LYB Clothesline flowers
LYB Twig paper lace
LYB Clothesline chipboard
LYB Clothesline diecut flourish
LYB Delightful photo corners
Twine from The Twinery

Adhesives:

Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Premium Craft Glue
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
