Today I am sharing two layouts I made as part of the First Communion album from my friend's son. Remember? I've told you about it in several past posts: HERE and HERE2. It's the album I did not want to make all the pages talking about the Communion itself so I tried to give each one a different focus and personality.
For this one I cut cardstock and patterned paper to simulate a very colorful sun. Also used some ribbon, ink and of course... stamps. Both these stamps are from Unity Stamp Co. Some of the punched circles are placed in 3D for great dimension.
And this one is the one I positioned at the end of the album. It's the one to preserve the program of the day as memorabilia. I simply framed it with some elements. The shaped cardstock at left was freely hand cut in white, punched the little holes with the Crop-o-dile, and then glued to black cardstock to cut slightly in the outside leaving an edge.
For the tag, I hand cut the shape, and stamped the sentiment in white and applied embossing powder for heat embossing. I embellished with a cutout made with the Cricut Machine. Also used edge puncher for the black strip below.
I love using stamps for journaling, titles or making my own embellishments. These are pretty simple pages made as part of an entire album and they are unique for the person to preserve the memories.
On a separate note...I have to tell you it's been hot in here... OMG... so humid. I think we've had warmer weather in September and October, than during the Summer. If you are wishing for some warm weather, come to Puerto Rico.
And it is Friday again! It's a very special Friday... as everyday should be. My birthday was last Monday, and we plan to celebrate tomorrow... Let's party! And I will also have a week off from work next week, so today might be intense at the office since when you know you are leaving for a while, you will definitely find a lot of things to get done before leaving... right?
What do you plan to do this weekend? Tell me about it. Share it with me. And let me know how you liked the pages and the stamps. By leaving a comment, you might end up winning something from Unity Stamp Co. since this post will be linked to Friday's Friends with Flair. Tks for stopping by.
