"Success Story" with Marsha

Hey friends!  Marsha here today sharing a layout in my Life Crafted Album.  I used the fabulous August Scrapbooking Add-on kit, the subscriber exclusive Ampersand Love cut file, and the Simple Words Version 2 stamps.

Here's a look at the layout:

For this layout, I began by cutting out the cut file using white cardstock.  Because I planned to use the cut file on the left side of the layout, I trimmed the thick white border from the left side of the cut file.  I backed the ampersand portion of the cut file with a patterned paper from the kit and mounted the entire file onto another patterned paper from the kit, trimmed to 5"x8.25" to fit in the Life Crafted Album.

I added the title using a fabric ephemera piece and a gold title piece, both from the kit.  Next, I added some stamping, another fabric ephemera piece and some puffy stickers to complete this side of the layout.

For the right side, I began by layering some patterned papers behind my photo.  I embellished around the photo using cardstock ephemera, puffy stickers, and fabric ephemera pieces.  I also added some stamping using the Simple Words Version 2 stamp.  This set includes so many fun sentiments!  Using some sharp scissors, I trimmed and pieced together two different stamps in the set to make a phrase I stamped at the top of the page.  Don't be afraid to make your stamps work for you and your layouts!

Here's a final look at the spread in my album:

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you will check out the fun new cut files and the amazing Scrapbooking Add-on kit available this month at Citrus Twist Kits.  I will see you again soon!
