American Crafts | Kids

The new True Stories collection from Shimelle is bright and cheerful and perfect for kids' pages.  I used a phrase from Dr. Seuss, along with playful letters to create a one of a kind title for my kid page.

supplies: Shimelle True Stories (370712) - Salted Caramel paper, Shimelle True Stories (370705) Lemon and Ginger paper, Shimelle True Stories (370743) - Ephemera, Shimelle True Stories (370742) - Photo Overlays, Shimelle True Stories (370733) - Phrase And Alpha Stickers, Shimelle True Stories (370735) - Cork Stickers, Shimelle True Stories (370736) - Enamel Dots, Shimelle True Stories (370729) - Chipboard Hipster Multicolor Thickers, Precision Pens (62311) - Black .03, Mister Huey's (331064) - Inky Black, This To
That (AM617-13) - Adhesive 

How To: Fussy cut letters from Salted Caramel paper to create title. Use a sewing machine to add machine stitching to each letter, leave threads long to create interest.  Place title on layout (but do not adhere) to figure out letter placement.  Once you have decided where your title needs to go, remove letters and paint white paint across background using a wide foam brush.  Set aside to dry.  Adhere cork building sticker and flag (ephemera)
to the bottom left hand side of layout.  Adhere title to layout, use a journaling pen to journal in the letter "O".  Flick drops of black spray mist against background. Print a small photo and adhere to bottom right hand side along with photo overlay, ephemera and phrase sticker.  Finish by embellishing page with enamel dots, ephemera pieces, and stickers.
