Today I'm excited to share a page I had featured on the Just Nick blog, for summer week.
Summer for me and my kiddos means countless hours at the local community pool, so it was an obvious choice for me to scrap some of those memories. I've been eyeing the Marquee Alpha
for awhile. It was just the pop I needed to draw some serious attention to my title, amongst a page with lots of photos and lots of journaling.
Isn't the detail in this font amazing? Even when it's sized down to just an inch and a quarter high, as I've done for my page title, it still makes a strong impact on the page.
To add even more dimension to these fun title letters I cut one set of each letter from my pattern paper and three additional sets of the title letters from kraft cardstock. Adhering each of the three kraft layers on top of one another and finishing off each letter with the patterned paper version creates lots of dimension. In fact, the letters almost feel and look as if they are chipboard, which in this case, coordinated perfectly with the other chipboard elements on the page.
Without a doubt, one of my favorite pieces of every Crate Paper collection are the chipboard frames. I used several in my collage of photos to make some of my favorite pictures stand out. This wood grain chipboard frame, fit perfectly around the picture of my girl enjoying her first root beer float. Accenting it with the darling little popsicle diecut, was a no brainer!
This particular frame makes a big impact when attached to the page with foam adhesive. It highlights a fun photo of my boy and his buddy and makes it stand out from the collage of pictures and diecuts surrounding it.
That's it from me today! I'll be back often this week with lots more to share.
