After yesterday's 4-square layout, today I'm turning to the trusty 9-square grid to create a page about my husband's grandmother and a glimpse of life on the farm.
Supply List - Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Border Stickers: October Afternoon, Fancy Pants; Letters: American Crafts, Basic Grey; Embellishments: Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye, October Afternoon; Punches: Tonic Studios
I love the fabric texture on these Thickers but don't care for my slightly crooked stamping. Is there a tool or technique to help me line up word stamps straighter?
I purchased a butterfly punch at Joann's, justified by reasoning that my Slice can't cut anything that small. I'm a big fan of embellishing in groups of 3; thus the flower, tag, and butterflies. And because the butterflies are so small, why not use 3 of them?
The journaling is Phil's list of memories of his grandmother's kitchen. He loved the noodles and lemonade, but left the room when they blanched chickens. The flowers were made from paper scraps and these punches by Tonic Studios, with a MME brad in the center. (here's a short YouTube video if you want to see the punches in action)
Just like yesterday's layout, these aren't the greatest photos, but using compartments of color results in a pleasing page. Do you have certain strategies you like to use when scrapping less-than-perfect pictures?
