I FINALLY got a chance to play with my new DCWV Green Stack and this is the result. I found the basic page map for the layout in one of my scrapbook magazines; I think it was Scrapbook Answers - LOVE THEM! I decided to scrap some of the photos that we took over Thanksgiving at our new house and wanted to keep with the nature theme.
I used the Cricut cartridge Home Accents to cut the partridge, Opposites Attract to cut the word Heart, George to cut the heart shapes and Paper Pups for the tree. For the eye on the partridge I used some self-adhesive dimensional pearls. I love these little accents and they are so cheap - I actually picked them up at my local Dollar Tree! I used some recycled paper chipboard letters from K & Co. for the word, tweet, and the chipboard buttons are also by DCWV. I sewed them on using Bazzill thread in Desert Sand. The background paper for the photos and for the word, heart, are from The Paper Studio while the red cardstock for the small heart shape is Bazzill. The red patterend paper for the heart shape was actually left over packaging from the chipboard buttons. I save everything! LOL! I also used quite a few pop dots on this project (as always - LOL!) and my Zig glue pen, which I fell in love with several months ago thanks to a fellow scrapper.
The journaling on the tree reads: Such a sweet face. Such a sweet boy. Nearly thirteen. Growing so fast. So kind. November 2008.
I hope to do a few more layouts this week using the DCWV stack, too!
