all smiles

Here's my first share for my guest spot at Hambly Screen Prints. Have I told you how much I ♥ Hambly? Well, I do... a lot!
One of my favorite techniques in scrapbooking that is quite preschoolish but fun-- paper piecing! Which is basically a fancy way to say cutting & layering paper. It took a bit more time to piece each of the butterflies from the blue wings paper but I love the dimension & cascading effect across the page.
My other favorite part of this page, besides adorable q-bear, is the title. Not for what it says but how I made it... I was missing a bunch of the letters but I was determined to make it work by cutting 8s for the s's, j for the l & an upside down w for the m. (Reason #274 I adore my thickers.) It would have been much easier to think of a different title but what's the fun in that?
blue wings paper
orange/magenta circles paper
pink wings transparency
love these woodgrain rubons I used on the bottom of the photo
American Crafts:
letters & orange puffy thickers
Happy Wednesday!

This layout is a blast! I can't help but smile looking at it. I love Thickers too...but I have been frustrated with the puckering up they sometimes do...especially the vinyl...have you found a solution to this?

Collin said...

Sara, I have the same puckering up problem with my black vinyl pants. If anyone has a solution, please help.

Mindy said...

Love the colors..
Would LOVE to see Collin in his black vinyl trousers.. ;)
Glad to know I am not the only one who cuts up stickers and rub ons to make my titles work!

Tammy Morales said...

I love how you think outside the box! Create Create Create

Monika said...

Collin.......my husband has the same quirky sense of humor that you do. I actually lol at your comment as I read it thinking of my incredibly sexy, witty, makes me laugh every day, wonderful husband. We ARE lucky gals. And, Liz, one of the things I love about scrapbooking is that as I look at the page in the album, I think about the "story" behind the creation of it and what I was feeling and reminiscing about at the time (I usually cry at some point during the journaling). It's like a story in a story!!!! Awesome.

Lindsay Bateman said...

Fabulous layout. Just gorgeous. She looks SO much like her dad! Wow!

Kristen said...

I <3 Hambly too!

Jaimie Lea said...

CreativeChretin said...

I really like the color of the layout with the processing on the picture!! Wonderful as always!

AbbieTorroll said...

aww absolutely gorgeous!! (the page and your daughter) ;) love it Liz!

Bryan, Amy and Michael said...

Hey Liz, LOVE the page... but how did you get the "dimension"? The butterflies really seem to stand off the page, the wings as though they are flying! Did you bend them slightly first? Did you prop them up with something? It's awesome! And I have to say... I love Thickers too :D

I LOVE this! I do the same thing with my letters. Either that or use the empty space and cut a rectangle around it. I *HAD* to have the same screen print. I love Hambly Screen Prints!

EmmaJ said...
