12x12 die cut

Hi everyone!!

First of all, I would like to thank you to come and visit me. :) That's really greatly appreciated!!
Second, since you are here it means you like scrapbooking and what I do, I would like to ask you a little vote. I participated in a Studio Calico contest but my video alone is not enough to win, I would need enough votes too!! So if you are interested in seeing my video AND voting, here's the link to get to the Facebook page where the contest is happening. You'll have to like the Studio Calico's page.

to vote:

Did you ever ask yourself what you could do with this huge 12x12 stencil or die cut that you love?? That was our assignment for this month. Here's what I did:

On this page I wanted to record what my daughter Maya is saying at the moment. She is just starting to talk more so the same things are coming over and over again.

The background is a piece of white cardstock that I had left over after I had cutout several speech bubbles. I backed the ones where I wanted to write with ledger paper and the other bubbles where backed with colorful patterned papers.

I added a title with foam letter stickers and with corrugated cardboard letters.

Here you can see a little of what I wrote.

And I added a stitched border and some black color shine splatters.

My die cut was not very balanced. There was a large column on the right where there were not speech bubbles so I used this space to add some embellishments. I used the speech bubbles that were left over from mu die cut.

Thanks for looking!! :)
And thanks for voting!! :)

I enjoy your blog more and more... Your layout is fantastic, aussi bien pour la mise en page que le journaling !
