Welcome to another scrappy edition of The Cherry On Top.
I've got my girl Paty back in the spot light, again! She has a revamped kit, Kids At Play releasing for the first time at Pickleberrypop. There have been a few additions and some tweaking, too. Scroll further to see some lovely inspiration using this kit, grab a fun freebie and get a look at a happy hybrid.
I just took these pictures during our heat wave. The boys were so darn cute! I designed this layout a little differently than normal. TIP: I designed as if it were a template and shaped all of the paper stacks up, then inserted my choice of papers and clipped them in. It was really easy and I do that with photos as well. Just copy your plain background, size it the size you want your picture, place it and then simply clip in your photo. It beats cropping and recropping to have your photo exactly how you need it.
I don't often do a double layout, but this kit and the pictures were just so great. I had to keep going!
The layout below was from photos of our vacation in Spain. The boys had the best time ever. JJ already announced that he doesn't want to go anywhere on vacation except Spain. Hehehe...
Here's a look at Paty Greif's kit, Kids At Play. The typical fun, bright fashion of Paty Greif. You'll find word art, journal cards for project life style scrapping and so many thoughtful goodies, you'll be scrapping for hours.
I made another frickie. A frickie is a free, frame/quick page. You can use it in all kinds of different ways. Scroll further to see my examples.
You can enlarge the image so that it takes up your entire page, like I did here. In this manner it's like a quick page. You may insert a background if you like, or leave it white.
You can also use your frickie as a frame as I did in this layout, below.
Paty's goodies are extremely well designed with quality so good, you can easily print them out with gorgeous results.
Simply insert a fun picture and print. You can print on rigid card stock for the easiest method.
However, if you have no card stock, use the inside of a cereal box. I always have a couple of boxes on hand. I find the quality really perfect for a lot of paper projects. Especially, for mini album covers.
Adhere your print out to the inside of the cereal box.
Cut around your image. I left a tad of the white. The choice is yours.
I also often ink around the edges. You get a more finished look and if you don't cut perfectly you ink over where the paper and cardboard meet, camouflaging the mishap.
You can paper over the print and then adhere your magnetic tape or just leave it, like I did. It'll be replaced in a year or so anyway with an updated picture. Hehehe...
That was quite a blog! I hope you enjoy your free frickie and that you check out Paty's Kids At Play kit. It'll be an excellent addition to your scrappy stash.
