SRM meets Pink Paislee

SRM Stickers teamed up with Pink Paislee to do a little feature and i was lucky enough to receive the 12x12 paper collection pack of the Hometown Summer collection from them for my project.

i completely *adore* this collection----the colors and patterns are totally my style. red? butter yellow? be still my heart!

and what i loved even more is that there are 24 sheets in the pack, giving you 4 sheets each of the different patterns, double sided--12 patterns total! looooove. love. love. here's what i came up with:

i pulled out an older favorite photo of emma gracers (aka: spidergirl) that i had once started to scrap and was sidetracked from---i know this, only because the photo was already mounted on white cardstock ready for business. hahaha.

i really wanted to do some journaling on this layout, but i just couldn't come up with the right words to say, so, i'll add it to the back someday when i'm more inspired to write some reflective words.

to take care of all the "white" space where the journaling would have gone, i ended up adding some depth to it by punching circles with my 3/4" circle punch from the same color cardstock to create a tone-on-tone pattern.

then i layered everything over top. the large number '3', the 'You are the SWEETEST', the hearts, and the zig-zag are all SRM stickers! the 'at age' are older alphabet stickers from Pink Paislee too.

this paper from the collection is my absolute favorite. my head is spinning with ideas of how to use it.....good thing i have 4 sheets of it, eh?

for this layout, i just cut out the letters to spell out 'emma' and two of the little girls jumping rope to create my little banner.

when i make banners, i just put the pieces close together so they overlap slightly, that way i don't have to actually string them onto a string----it's an awkward process. instead, i tie two bows--usually with baker's twine--then adhere them with gluedots .

to jazz these ones up, i used my Fiskars Treading Water Border Punch to add the black scallop to the bottom of each cut-out. then layered the Prima tiny roses on top.

this green acres paper is what i cut the border strip from that runs across the lower portion of the layout.

and here's the full-size sticker sheets i took my SRM stickers from:

We've Got Your Number - Extra Large

clicking the the name of the sticker sheet will take you directly to the SRM shop if you can't find them locally.

i'll see you back here tomorrow for a new video tutorial! :)
