Early Bird Layout for Jinger Adams Design Team Call

Two days in a row – I know -- WOW!  This post is worth it.  I have a creation I made for the Jinger Adams Design Team Call.  It is open to everyone so link here to get the scoop on entering.  

 My main reason for crafting is scrapbooking but it seems I am always busy working on other things (cards, school projects, altered crafts, and home décor) and never get any scraping done.  Well, I finally have another scrapbook page to share.  It is only a one-page layout, but I absolutely love the look.

I just got the new “Good Old Days” imagine cart this week and it is such a sweet set of images.  It is my current favorite.

Recipe for layout:

-Cut and print Background shape.  I used a pattern from the Imagine cart Elise (These papers coordinate nicely with The Good Old Days cart).  I got the scallop shape from the CTMH Art Philosophy cart. 

-Print title on the background paper.  (I used CCR & Imagine for this but a PC and large print works well too).

-Print and cut a top layer for title in a coordinating color ( I wielded mine slightly in CCR.)
-Print & cut focus image.  (I used the adorable birds on the new Good Old Days cart).

I took the birds, deleted the background, and had CCR print & cut them.  I pop-dotted them on the same image I had already printed on the background pattern.  The pop-dots give it a nice dimensional look.

-Cut frames and corners on solid card stock.

-Ink most all edges and glue down.

- Add a few embellishments.  I used some brads, string, and a label frame.

- Add Photos (I will be adding photos of my sleeping teenager)  and share with all!

All the other shapes and lettering are from CTMH Art Philosophy Cart (my other current favorite).

I used the Circuit Craft room (CCR) to design it all.  If you haven’t used CCR yet, it is a free on-line tool that is getting better all the time and really enhances your circuiting experience.  For this project, some layers were only “printed”, while other layers were “cut” or “cut & printed”.  Again – lots of versatility with my imagine inside the CCR.

 I hope you enjoyed this sweet layout as much as I do.  Wish me luck and prays for the Jinger Adams and Scrapbooking Queen Design Team call.  Good luck to all!

 God Bless & Happy Scrappin!
