For the next couple of days here at SCS, I thought I would celebrate sisters – in particular, my two little gals who make great sisters for each other. Back before Christmas, I had pictures taken of the girls together, and I thought it would be fun to create a page for each of them for their scrapbooks. I decided to try using the same stack of paper, but instead of making matching pages, I thought it might be neat to see what would happen if I used each girl individually as the inspiration. Similar pictures, the same great Coral and Navy stack from DCWV, and a different person in mind! First up – G’s page!
Now, let me just say that G is the younger one of the two, and as you might be able to tell from the pictures, she is my little monkey. Life is fun for G, and if she could play all day and night, she would! You might also be able to tell from those expressions that she loves getting into mischief. What you might not be able to tell is that, although she does like pink and dresses, she adores blue and anything having to do with cars and trains – oh, and bouncy balls!
So when I was designing this page, I decided to make blue the focus, and include elements that were feminine, but not overly girly. There are so many great patterns in the stack, so there was lots to work with!
These hearts were simply cut by hand from a variety of the patterns in the stack. If you have a punch or a cutting machine, that will work great as well, but for me, I love the actual act of cutting (as you might be be able to tell from the fussy cut flowers), so it was just as easy to cut one, and recreate it with the other papers.
This title was also cut from the stack – a simple tag element from one of the back pages. I have to admit that I am a bit lazy when it comes to cutting out letters for layouts, so I LOVE IT when I can just use an element from the stack. This one seemed to suit G – nice and bold and graphic, with that hint of “girly” at the bottom.
And buttons- seriously, I am not sure there is a cutter element on a page about little girls than buttons. To create a bit more dimension, I simply cut think strips of the pink page and looped it to sit underneath the buttons like a banner. If you prefer a flatter page, just substitute those loops with flat pieces and you are all set to go!
So, that’s it for me today! Tomorrow, I’ll share the page for my older daughter, a little girl who is all about the pink, princesses and ballerinas! In the meantime, I am off to get these two munchkins up for the morning! Have an awesome day, and thanks for stopping by!
