August Club scrap sunflowers bloghop

Hi all, welcome to the club scrap sunflowers bloghop ! So awesome to have you here! Today i am sharing a page i made using the sunflowers collection patterned papers, cardstock, stamps, twine and cutaparts. I got a lil layering happy on my page can u tell ?!  and i even fussy cut out the big sunflower and the title shine from one of the pattern papers.
my tip: if you are afraid to stamp right onto your scrapbook page or like to change your mind a million times like sometimes I do when I am working on a page-prestamp your favorite stamps onto different colored cardstock from the kit and then when you are working on the page and need a lil more layers punch or cut them out .then add in the layers ,like I did on my page below. thanks for stopping by and happy creating! jen  t. :)

Here is the 12x12 page i made of my lil guy playing cute with a babydoll:
tip#2 on my sons shirt in the picture it had a bright blue stripe on it that I didn't like. so I colored that part of his sleeve on the picture with a black alcohol ink marker to make his shirt match the page better.  Alter the picture to match. It is ok to do that. Give it a try.

Club scrap august team challenge

Hi all, how are you? Are your kids back to school yet?  I don't know about you but with 3 kiddos home ... It has been a long summer ! I have 12 more days to go! Wooohoo! I am ready for our routine back. With that said our team challenge this month is to make something back to school . So i realized I didn't scrap my lil daughters 1st day bus ride to kindergarten from last year yet so the sunflowers papers went  perefect with the bright yellow of the bus. Everything used on my page is from the sunflowers collection. The alphas are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by and happy creating! Jen T.  :)
