Here's the Story

Hello Crafty Blends
Jessica Here today!
I hope you have stuck with
me through my irregular absence
and are ready
to see my next
DT project for 3 Girl JAM!

I grabbed all of my
3 Girl JAM goodies
and couldn't decide
whether to use

 I used THEM ALL on my layout!!!

I decided to do a fun Layout with a Boyish color scheme (blues and browns)
since I don't dabble too much 
with masculine projects.
I have some very fun baby pictures of Lance Jr.  
that I will have to hunt for
to put in this layout, 
but at least the layout is ready whenever I do find them.

I started by adding the  
Sky Blue Twine
to my photo mats
so it could serve as Photo Corners
to hold the pics in place.

Then I pleated the adhesive Baby Boy Canvas Border  (Baby pack)
and adhered it on to a brown core'dinations border strip.
After adhering this together, I used an
EK success punch to create
the trimmed edge
and placed this embellishment
just below my mats.
I inked the edges of my mats using Studio G brown ink
to highlight the edges between the dp and the brown cs.
I used several stamps from my new
Ippity by Unity set
Life's Little Moments.

For the round date/journaling stamp, I inked it using TH
Vintage Photo, on white card stock, fussy cut around it,
 then adhered it to another circle piece of cs for support.
I then looped my
Baby Boy Blue Crinkle Ribbon
and glued it using Tacky Glue to the back.  I added a 3rd circle
piece of card stock after this.

I used the same TH ink for the journaling box in the upper left corner, but
stamped the sentiment, "Here's the Story"
using Versa Magik - Sea Breeze.
The blue rectangle Labels are by Pebbles Inc.
The corsage pin was made me moiee'
and the faux stitching around the borders were created
using a Whisper Strokes - Dual Tip Watercolor Marker

Here is the full view of the completed Layout!

Keep Crafting
