I used patterned papers and elements from the January Kit Club collection, which was Scoot from Echo Park.
I actually used the new ALPHABET stamp set for my title! These cute little alphas are part of the new Trendy Type stamp set. I just love how big and bold they are. I used the coordinating SVG file for the letters to make the white cardstock pieces and then I stamped each piece with the coordinating letter. I did the same thing with the big 2 from the One Two Three stamp set.
In my die cutter program (I use SCAL2), I also made the big shadow layer shape that I cut out with the orange patterned paper. I have this set of cuts available in the SP Store as an SVG cut file in case you like it.
These photos I scrapped are of my nephew on his 2nd birthday, which was actually a few years ago! This little guy is much older now, but I thought these photos of him were perfect for this month's papers. I cut the outside photos down to 2X3inches. The center photo is cut 2X3.5inches.
Now, I actually got inspired for the layout of this layout from a Christmas layout I saw on Pinterest, if you can believe it! It had circles and snowflakes hanging down so I drew my inspiration from that. Of course, my layout looks pretty much nothing like the original layout, but it sure inspired me!
To create my hangy down areas, I first decided where my photos were going to go (bottom left), then I stamped my faux stitches using some blue ink with the Stitchery Doo stamp set. To the ends, I attached cute elements from the January SP Monthly Kit, part of the Scoot collection from Echo Park. Then I raided my button stash and added buttons to the lines that matched my patterned papers.
The whole layout just looks so BOY and BIRTHDAY themed, it looks fun to me!
Here are some more close ups for ya:
That's it for today!! The design team and I will be back tomorrow with a great February Stamp Release party!! I hope to see you then!
