Simple Scrapper - March Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Blog Hop with Simple Scrapper!  Here are the projects that I created inspired by a template and story starter from the Simple Scrapper Premium Membership.

1.  Daddy's Lil' Buddy {a layout}.  This is a layout inspired by a Simple Scrapper template highlighting a photo of baby Benjamin.

Supplies:  Simple Scrapper Premium Subscription - Single #2 Template; Cardstock (Core'dinations); Patterned Papers (Echo Park, Scenic Route); Letter Stickers (American Crafts Thickers); Stickers (October Afternoon, Heidi Swapp); Embellishments (Studio Calico Wood Veeners, Twinery Twine; October Afternoon Buttons); Inks/ Sprays (Studio Calico; Memento); Stamps (Lawn Fawn); Washi Tape (Target); Adhesives (Xyron Mega Runner, Xyron 1.5" Create a Sticker); Punch (Martha Stewart Crafts); Journal Card (Jenni Bowlin Studios).

Here are some closeups.  I love using washi tape to define my embellishment clusters.  In this layout, I placed my clusters around a visual triangle to draw attention to the main photo.

Given my extensive stamp stash, I am also trying to incorporate them more into my layouts.  In this one, I stamped some borders onto patterned paper and then fussy cut them to create whimsical embellishments to the layered papers.

2.  Hawaii Mini Album. Here is the beginning of a Hawaii mini album that I hope to keep up to date throughout our time in Hawaii by simply printing out 6x6 collages of our various adventures.  This album is inspired by a Story Starter in the Simple Scrapper Premium Membership.

Supplies: Simple Scrapper Premium Membership (March Story Starters); Patterned Paper, Stickers and Embellishments (American Crafts); Adhesives (Xyron Mega Runner); Punch (WRMK); D Rings (Tim Holtz).
