Do you ever scrapbook about food? As a rule I tend not to, but come on…aren’t thse food related accents & wood veneer shapes in the July Main kit adorable??! And they were the perfect way to decorate a page documenting my son’s new cooking skills.

The July color kit had this fabulous stamp & stencil combo. Soft aqua ink and the the Heidi Swapp stencil worked so well to add to my white cardstock background. Ink splatters are the simplest way to add color; I used three colors: navy blue, Yellow & orange. Archival ink resists water color washes, so I used it to stamp the Heidi Swapp stamp. Cutting it out allowed me to raise it on pop dots for added height.
Painted yellow paint, makes the wood veneer accents really stand out nicely as well as adding a wonderful visual triangle within the page, helping one’s eye to travel around the page.
Did you know our PL cards are designed exclusively & tailor made for each kit? These ones, from the July PL kit, were a fantastic way to add journaling to my layout.
Need to add color balance??I love balance. Try colored stitching or even better try mixing different stitches!! Notice the photos seem textured? Well that’s because they are :)…I tried out a pack of canvas photo paper, & it worked out so well. I love the effect it gives.
And last but not least…those super cute mini fork, knife & spoon pieces. Attaching them to a mini frame from the July Embellishment kit gives them a little more emphasis and creates the sweetest food related page accent. I LOVE this page, I love how it captures an important time in my little boy’s life & it’s these everyday memories that will be super important to him one day.
I’m so glad you stopped by today! Have a rockin’ Saturday, & I’ll see you next week!
