Second 2 Little Monkeys Layout - for Sweet Stamp Shop Scrapbooking Challenge
So here's the layout I've been proming. This is my second Halloween layout. The previous one is here. As I mentioned in that post, to save time, when doing similar layouts for both girls, I try and batch process: use the same theme/papers/embellishments, even the exact same layout. But for this one, the pictures just wanted to do something different. I used the same title and papers, but it's a totally different layout.
This is busier than I normally go in terms of patterns/design, but I like the results. I used a large platter to create the round shapes, and I was able to use both cuts on the orange paper, one on the left and the other on the right. The papers are from Fancy Pants Designs It's the Little Things collection.
The title was made using CTMH's Solos 2 and Cocktail Alphabet sets which I then fussy cut....always a good chore during TV time and we're watching a lot of playoff hockey now. The 2 was stamped in black on Creme Brulee cardstock, but I wanted it to look a little darker, so I carefully traced around the edges to make it stand out more.
I was working on this layout during National Scrapbooking Day, when Nicole at Sweet Stamp Shop issued a challenge to incorporate one of their stamp sets. Well, what represents Halloween better than some candy? So I inked up the Sweet Tooth stamp set. I used the border stamp on the left and right borders as well as the large and medium candy stamps to create the clusters on each page.
This layout was a lot of fun to put together, and I already showed it to my daughter who loved it. Wish I could have gotten some more scrapbooking done on NSD, but this'll do.
Thanks for stopping by!
