Even more Happy Days from MME!

Comments Off on Even more Happy Days from MME!

This collection has been lots of fun to use, with it’s bold colours and quirky elements!

To start my first layout I splattered some blue and green ink to the lower half of the base page. Then I tore two wide strips of paper and glued them to the top of the page. (Thanks to my fellow teamie Julie for the inspiration!)

I chose an equally fun photo and backed it with a few layers of patterned paper. I glued the photo in place and added two clouds alongside it cut from one of the collection’s papers. I placed a chipboard phrase above it with a little chevron.

Then I added a tag to hold my journalling, which I’d typed and cut into strips. Plus, a cute chipboard ice cream van alongside it and a few enamel dots and hearts around this part of the layout.

I chose a title from a set of American Crafts Thickers and added some chipboard chevrons below it, plus a phrase sticker and more enamel dots. I think they are my favourite embellishment!

To finish off I added a chipboard camera and another phrase sticker under the journalling tag.

My second layout is far more simple because I used a large cut file as the overall design. It’s often tricky to find embellishments for teen boys – or even grown men! So I chose this cut file as it has mainly leaves and wasn’t too feminine.

Using papers from the collection I back filled the leaves and then cut a decorative circle for the centre. I backed the centre with the wide striped paper as its simple design didn’t overpower the photograph.

I cut the photo into a circle to match the overall style of the layout and glued it towards the top of the middle circle, with a white cardstock border. And I die cut the title to work with the puffy phrase stickers

That’s all from me this month, so until next time, happy scrapping everyone!
