We’re so excited to be sharing this fun scrapbook layout by our Sweet Contributor, Jung AhSang! She’s joined Sweet Stamp Shop with a keen eye for design and we’re happy to be sharing her beautiful layouts of her sweet family.
Hello crafty friends! I have a layout to share with you featuring Sweet Stamps. The theme for my September layout was getting back into the routine for fall. Fall to me means the start of another school year for my girls. My middle girl just started 2nd grade, so I thought I would do a layout documenting her excitement for the first day of school.
To make her layout, Jung first printed and trimmed the photo of her daughter. Then, she cut down a piece of craft cardstock to 8.5 x 11 inches.
I knew I wanted to use the Cartoon Alpha for my title. I stamped the letters I needed, colored them in with copic markers, and fussy cut them for my title. (I chose colors that coordinated with my photo.)
Next, she got on her silhouette machine and cut out the hearts background cut file from white cardstock. She adhered the cut file to my craft cardstock, and added some stitching and ink splatters. She also added a piece of washi tape that she tore to the bottom of her cardstock.
For some dimension and texture, Jung says:
I created some layers behind my photo, and decided where I wanted to put it on my layout. Next, I layed out the letters to create my title. I looked for some embellishments that I could add to my layout, keeping in mind the colors that I wanted to use (pink, blue, yellow). I found a cute balloon sticker, and I decided that I wanted another balloon. I stamped the star from the Bright Star stamp set, and turned it into a balloon, by drawing on a string. I colored it and fussy cut it out.I like to lay everything out on my layout and move things around before glueing things down. A good way to do this with stickers is to stick in on a piece of wax paper.
In finalizing her project, she says:
I typed some journaling on the computer, and cut it into strips. I glued them onto my layout on the upper left and the bottom right. I added the shine bright sentiment from the same Bright star stamp set to the bottom of my layout. To finish off project, I added a few more embellishments. I created clusters around the photo to draw your eye in to my beautiful girl.
