1st Haircut – Creative Embellishments DT layout

I’ve been holding onto these photos of Christian getting his first haircut for a little while now, so I figured it’s about time I scrap them. 😀 For this page, I used several Creative Embellishments frames, wood veneers, and alphas. I painted all the chipboard pieces, but left the wood pieces as they are. I love the blend of black, white, and wood grain. 😀 I also stamped the border using CE rubber stamps and black acrylic paint and added background details using their chevron stamp as well. Here’s how my page turned out:

Time Flies – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout of my youngest son to share. For this page, I’ve combined several of the FABULOUS CE 6×6 panels. I just love cutting bits here and there and using them as layering elements. I used paints to alter most of the chippies on my page, but left the mesh panel bare since I wanted to incorporate a variety of neutrals to offset my vibrant bg paper and the bold colors for the chevrons and frames.

I’ve also combined 2 challenges as inspiration for my layout. The sketch and title are for the Scrap and Music challenge #23 (Someone Like You) and the I added the magic and wonder theme from 7 dots studio. Hope you like what I came up with!
