My Pink Stamper Design Team Post - March

Spring Scrapbook Layout

This scrapbook layout was a lot of fun to make. I knew I wanted to make it fun and springy. I originally wanted to use bolder colors but these colors looked the best together. Sorry, I have a hard time taking pictures of 2 page layouts. If you have any tips on that, please leave me a comment. Most of the paper is Core'dinations. I love how well it cuts on the Cricut with the blade at 6 and the pressure at 6. I also love how you can sand or distress the Core'dination paper to see the different core color. They come in amazing colors, too. Ok, now that you know what my favorite paper is, I will get back to my layout.

 Cloud with Bird - Create A Critter - 3"
Spring - Gypsy Wanderings - 2.5"

Flowers - Live Simply - 2.5"
These flowers had so many layers & I couldn't figure out how they were suppose to go. So this is my version of them.

 Flower Frame - Live Simply - 4"
Stamp - Familes are Forever - My Pink Stamper Everyday Life Stamp Set
Tip on putting this flower together: The dashes are a little difficult. I learned if I use the piece of paper that all the dashes were cut out of, I can lay it over the flower and know exactly where to put each dash mark. I even drew a line on paper where I started gluing the first dash mark. The reason this is a little more difficult is because the yellow circle is wider in some spots. So there are narrow and wide pink dashes. You also don't want to end up with extra space and have all your dashes glued down. But this flower is such a beautiful cut. Hope this tip makes since and is helpful.

 Butterfly - Live Simply - 2"

 Frame - Live Simply - 4"

 Tree - Simply Charmed - 6"

Sun - Create A Critter - 3"
Clouds - Create A Critter - 2"

Accented Layout with
Martha Stewart Opaque White Marker 
(it was a little transparent and wider than a pen, just the look I wanted)
Stickles - Star Dust

  5. This LO screams Spring! The colors are perfect and I love all the springy elements! Thanks for the tip on the flowers! As for photographing the double LO, I have the same problems. I think I might be getting better at it! I lay the LO on the desk (not under an overhead light) and place lamps around it. Then I stand on a chair and take the pics from over top of it. This way it is a straight on shot and I can then crop it down. I've posted several LOs over the past few weeks using this method and it is looking better. Hope that helps a little! Great work on the challenge and thanks for the inspiration!
