Hello, scrappy friends! Today I’m using the Simple Stories Dad Life collection to document my husband’s relationship with our son.
My husband and son are the only boys in our family of six, which means they have to stick together! They often hang out together and have developed a special bond … do I dare say that my son has become “Dad’s Favorite” by default?! This photo is a snapshot I took of them before heading out on a road trip together. It was the perfect opportunity to document their relationship!
I used the Snap Basics Aspen/White Notebook paper for the background of this page. I love using this paper for layouts, especially when I have a lot of journaling to add. The journaling lines are built right in!
Sometimes it can be difficult to find a masculine collection to work with our photos about the boys and men in our lives. Dad Life to the rescue! I love the colors of this collection soooo much! The gray, slate blue, orange, yellow, and black is a nice change of pace and are just perfect for scrapbooking the guys.
I also really love all of the phrase stickers! I couldn’t resist adding them to the embellishment clusters at the top and right side of the page.
The rocket ship is adorable, too! I added it to the top right corner of my photo, along with several hearts, stars, and phrase stickers. I die cut a few scribbly circle shapes to tuck behind the photo for an additional punch of black!
I love layering the stickers and elements together. Here I used the “#1 Dad” sticker as the title for this page, and then added one of the 3×4 cards next to it to act as a subtitle. I cut a piece of the plaid paper in a strip and then trimmed the ends to look like washi tape to “hold down” the card. At the bottom of the card I popped up the sneaker sticker on foam tape.
I’m so grateful that my husband and son are such great friends. It makes my heart smile every time they plan a trip or activity together. It’s a relationship I am grateful to have captured and recorded on this page.
Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection! I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldn’t stop. I have six “Darling” cards to share with you today.
Tinkerbell, herself, is here to take you on your magical journey! I cut her out using the Tinkerbell die set with shimmer cardstocks by Carta Bella Paper. I doubled up her vellum wings to allow her to flutter about.
The Peter Pan Ephemera tag is captain of the Jolly Roger on this card. Just use your imagination and think happy thoughts and you will be on your way to dreamland!
For this card I created a waterfall of circles with a scene. I love how you can almost follow the story line as you follow each picture from top to bottom.
I anchored the Lost Boy sticker, along with the teepee, on a series of concentric punched circles for a simple, yet striking design. A sprinkling of enamel dots adds dimension and shine.
I used the Hello Baby Boy Shining Stars embossing folder to emboss a night sky on Navy Shimmer cardstock for the background of this card. I love how the Darling children are holding hands as they experience pixie dust for the first time. A tiny, chipboard Tinkerbell provides a never-ending supply of fun.
Stacked, die cut rectangles anchor the characters on this fun card. How cute is Sleeping Nana drifting in the top left corner?!
I hope you enjoyed this trip to Neverland today! What magic will you be creating in your craft room this week?
Carta Bella Shimmer Cardstocks: Navy, Evergreen, and Gold
Thanks for coming by!
I am head-over-heels for the NEW Carta Bella Paper Circus collection and knew I had to use it for one of my son’s birthday memories.
I had three photos for this page and I knew that I wanted to line them up in a row. I put the largest photo in the center and then the two smaller, supporting photos on either side.
I cut a large circle from the Multi Journaling Cards paper
and matted it with a wavy circle that I cut from the Navy Felt Designer Cardstock
using my Silhouette Cameo. The large red starburst pattern from this paper really draws your attention to the photos and makes them “center-stage.”
Nothing says “party” like a banner! I used a banner punch and the Three Ring Circus patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad
to create a mini banner out of the different characters on the cards. The striped triangle pennant pieces were also punched from the 6×6 paper pad
. I adhered the banner pieces in a row to my background and then used my sewing machine to stitch across the top so they appear to be strung together.
I scattered a few stars around the page to tie things together, and also used them to dot the letter “i” in each word of my title. I love adding little details like that!
