Love You Always | Nat'l Scrapbook Day

Welcome to the American Crafts National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop! I hope you'll be inspired to whip out your American Craft supplies and start creating after you make your way through the 20 design team members'  blogs. There are a lot of fun challenges in this hop so there's no excuses not to play along!

MY CHALLENGE: Create an embellished, multi-dimension layout using a grid!

To create this layout, I cropped my photos to approximately 2x3 so that they would fit inside the frames. Prior to adhering them, I layered different types of pattern papers (from my 6x6 paper pad). I distressed some and left others with the cut edge. 

The Love You Always chipboard fit great inside the frames. I chose to add the yellow striped chipboard over the yellow striped frame but I embellished it by punching the red gingham and adhering it to the LOVE chipboard piece and popping it up over the sentiment. This was perfect for my title!

I added more clear cut shapes, rosettes, stickers and more to the layout to tie it all together.

I added my journaling, the cutest picket fence chipboard and the date using a date roller stamp.

Here is the full hop list in case you get a little lost along the way, or maybe you just ran across the hop from right here on my blog and you're just dying in anticipation to see them all right now. Either way, make sure you go through the entire hop, leave a comment on each blog, then visit the American Crafts blog to win a "super ginormous prize"! 


Next on the hop is Andrea Budjack!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!
