Hello friends! Christy and I are back with another Season of our Obsessed Series. This time around we are Obsessed with The Dear Lizzy Saturday Collection. A lot of collections came out around the same time as this one but Christy and I immediately chose to work with this one. In case you’re not familiar with our Obsessed series, Christy and I choose a collection we both love. We both get as many things from that collection as possible. Every other week we chose 3-4 papers from that collection and a challenge to work with. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to use up the new collection as well as other things from our stash.
This week we chose 4 papers to work with and our challenge was a recipe challenge. The recipe includes: A long tittle, washi tape, 3 wood veneer and 1 frame.
I only had one of the papers in 12×12 size so I used that as my background. For my long tittle I used a cut file from the JustNick Etsy Store called Marquee Alpha and cut out my tittle. I cut it out on White American Crafts Textured Cardstock and backed the letters with navy blue cardstock. I used a black and white stripped washi tape under all of the words.
I also used a cut file from the Silhouette Studio with an airplane and the word vacation on it. SInce the 12×12 patterned paper has diagonal stripes I took advantage of that and placed my tittle at an angle. Eventually I realized that my photo looked better at an angle too. I used a Simple Stories Chipboard frame over the photo and added a few simple layers behind it.
I embellished using pieces from the Dear Lizzy Saturday ephemera pack, sticker sheet and puffy stickers. I also added my three wood veneer, I decided to go with three airplanes since I am scrapbooking a photo of my mom and my brother at the airport about to head to my country of birth, Cuba. My mom had not returned since we left 27 years ago. It was a very emotional but great trip for her. The vacation cut file needed some color so I used one of my Shimmerz Paints Creameez in the color Lettuce get Together (Remember, if you place any orders at Shimmerz mention my name and you’ll receive a FREE product.)
This was a fun layout to make. Christy and I always have a lot of fun with our series. I hope you’ll check out our videos. Here is mine.
Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty
