Hello, it’s the 5th of the month which can only mean one thing…new challenge over at Sarah Hurley 365 and this time Nicole has picked the theme of “Speech Bubbles”.
A lot of my regular readers will be surprised to see I have made a scrapbook page, I felt like a change, and after taking this picture of our Great Niece at the park, I really had to do something special with it.
As a new owner of a Cameo, I thought I should play with some of Sarah’s Files from the Silhouette Store. There are lots of great cutting files to chose from, and I opted for the Speech Bubble Background as the main layer for my page. I love the versatility of the files as you can resize them to suit your project. I made it 8×8 and cut a piece of contrasting pink paper to put under it.
I stamped “Smile” and “Snapshot” into a couple of the bubbles using sentiments from the Picture This Stamps. I loved the Chevron papers from last months A Few of My Favourite Things Kit, it is a 12×12 so was fabulous for this lay out, and means I can make a few things from the one sheet of paper!
I had taken lots of pictures of the little one at the park (she smiles as soon as she sees you are taking a picture), and the heron, ducks and squirrels and printed out a few, layered them onto purple pearlescent paper and linked them all together with some strips of punched paper. My tip is to use colours that compliment the picture.
I used a 12×12 sheet of purple glittery card and layered everything onto it, I decided to do things at an angle for a change, even the title of the page and I am really pleased with the result. I wrote a wee story on a bit of black card with a chalk marker, chalked around the edge and popped it beside the picture. I finished the page with a scattering of sequins, I used glitter glue for them, the more sparkle the better.
