One of my favourites is Nancy Sinclair (kittyscrapper on You Tube). She makes amazing layouts and is so very entertaining as well. Actually, she often has me laughing while I watch. So if for some reason, you have not discovered Nancy yet, head on over to her channel and be prepared for inspiration and fun :).
Nancy's challenge for her 500 subbie giveaway is :
- To make a layout (12 X 12 or 8.5 X 11)
- Use patterned paper as the background
- Include at least one embellishment cluster
- Use at least two stamps
One of the things I love about Nancy's layouts are her titles - they are often smart, a little sarcastic and funny! I tried to do that on this layout, as a little "cheers" to her. As you can tell, I can't really hold a candle to Nancy's title LOL. Oh well ... I think it's funny and it does reflect the photo.
The background PP is from Stampin' Up and the remainder are from two 6 X 6 pads - Dear Lizzy Neopolitan and Carta Bella Hello Again.
I included two clusters, one in the upper right portion and the other in the bottom left.
I used a few stamps : The hearts are stamped with the Hearts-a-flutter set from SU (and then die cut), the camera is stamped from the same set, and then I used a stamp from Simon says stamp for the arrows on the left side of the photo.
Another little cheer to Nancy is the doily, which I sprayed with Mister Huey's Bonny Blue mist. Doilies are fast becoming my new addiction :)
Finally, I used Studio Calico wood veneer, Simple Stories Homespun 2 X 2 insta die cuts, October afternoon Daily Flash, and Mini Market, alphas and Thickers.
There you have it! Thanks for stopping by.
A big thank-you to Nancy for the opportunity and congratulations on the 500 mark!
