It got too late in the day to take photos and post my last layout for National Scrapbooking Day, but I still wanted to post it since I was pleased at how it turned out. Two of my three goals were finished: completing three layouts and using stash that was over a year old. I totally forgot about the stamping goal, so that didn't make any of my layouts this time. The nice thing was that made a point of utilizing a lot of older stash, including several Cricut diecuts from swaps that you will see on this double layout:
The patterned papers are from Basic Grey, the blue cardstock is Bazzill, the balloons, party hat and cake are from a Cricut swap. The acrylic "wishes" and "party" titles stickers are from Joann's (I believe their own brand). Because this layout is for my son's scrapbook, I wanted it to be fun, simplistic, brightand with more photos.
This layout was also completed for the first challenge on the Basic Grey blog for National Scrapbooking Day. Their challenge was to: Create a project using a craft knife or scissors to cut around the designs on patterned paper. However, once I got started designing the layout, I completely forgot about the cutting! I finished instead by trimming around three of the balloons so that I could slide a photo into the slit.
I hope you were able to get a lot accomplished yesterday -- but most importantly -- you had a wonderful time with your craft!
