"Making Faces" - scrapbook page with a little paint, stenciling, and stamps

Hello Friends! JJ here again, to share a scrapbook layout with you:

I started out by stenciling with white paint, using Susan's borders stencil.  Just enough to create a little extra movement in the background (because Susan's gorgeous papers already have plenty of depth!)  I die cut the green paper in a whimsical shape, just for fun.

Then I added a few more pieces of paper, doodled some stitches, and added stamped clouds, using the "Create Your Day" stamp set.  (I admit, the cloud is a favorite of mine).

The "Say Cheese" sentiment is from the "Insta-cute" stamp set, and I stamped it on a scrap of Susan's papers, ensuring that it would match perfectly with the rest of the layout.

A few little embellishments glued down with Helmar 450, and I was ready to go.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. I love your layout so many cute details, I like the idea of using stamps and stenciling !!

  2. Your page works really well JJ with lots of small details to add to a cute story.
    I have so few photos of my son growing up as he always did the silly faces - come to think of it - he still does = very few photos!

  3. I love how your photos and and embellishments create a bouquet-like image... fun! Great layout AGAIN!
