The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

A Lovely Storybook Layout!

I'm back with another layout, this time a two page layout that features several Cricut cuts from the Storybook Cartridge.  This is one of those cartridges that I have that I've just thumbed through the book so much that it is now dog-eared and bedraggled but oh so loved.  Yes, I just love this cartridge and I find that there is still so much more I can discover each time I look through it.  Some of the feature keys include frames, borders and fancy corners.  I love all those options about this cartridge and  another feature that sold me on this cartridge is the font style.  In this layout I played up the "Once Upon a Time" and "Happily Ever After" phrases as I featured a picture of my nieces and nephew reading a book to their new baby sister.  I layered the phrases twice on the one page and three times on the other phrase.  Now I've got to say there wasn't a layer option for the phrases but I did it by increasing the sizes of the phrase in minute quarter inch detail.  I love the greens of this layout as it brings to mind the coming St. Patty's day.  I would love to hear what you think of this layout and maybe your ideas on what I should do for journalling their story!! I am going to either add another picture in the circular space on the 2nd page or add the story of my nieces and nephew.. let me know what you think about how to complete this layout.  I have some more layouts to feature...stay tuned!  Find lots of the products I use on my layouts and cards at my favourite online scrapbook store OC Scrapbookers 'n More
