Welcome to Day 6 of the Artisan Entry Blog Hop!
The inspiration for the scrapbooking pages came easily and here's the second layout I put together for the contest. The pictures of my sister and my brother-in-law were taken last summer when Judy was expecting and they were taken by Seb's talented aunt. She's a great photographer and she always takes beautiful pictures that make for great pages. She had photographed Judy and Seb separately, but by combining the pictures side by side, it made an interesting break on the page.
I handcut some of the hexagons from one of the This & That Epic Day Designer paper sheets and glued them on top of the notebook page. I added a few hexagons floating on the right and left edges, and I highlighted the "5 cents" on the Designer paper by painting it with Champagne Mist shimmer paint.
The pennants and arrows come from the This & That Epic Day Designer sticker sheets. I added some ornements on some of the pennants (dahlia, brad, button) and mini silver brads in between. The date was added with the Remember This rotary stamp and I added a sentiment embossed in Pool Party embossing powder underneath the picture that reads "It's true happiness." Bits of Designer tape were added to the pictures as well.
The journaling was stamped one letter at a time using the Simply Serif Mini Alphabet using the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig and a lot of care since I was stamping directly on the main page!
The title was block was creating by layering pieces die-cut with the Windowframe Framelits and a punched circle, then a banner cut out of Pool Party Core'dinations cardstock (love the textured cardstock!).
