Tuesdays With The Team | Nov 26

Today, on the Canadian Scrapbooker magazine blog, I shared one of the layouts that I completed at CropFest a few weekends ago:

Supplies used:  FabScraps patterned paper; Core'dinations and Recollections cardstock; Prima and Recollections washi tape; Pink Paislee flair button and photo tab; Freckled Fawn wooden speech bubble; Momenta key; Studio Calico wooden stars; Maya Road mist; May Arts twine; Canadian Scrapbooker sanding block; Marvy Uchica punch; miscellaneous calendar page; Sakura marker; Ranger Distress ink; Silhouette Cameo.

Well, I didn't finish it COMPLETELY at Crop Fest - I knew I wanted to create a title using my Silhouette, but until the layout came together, I wasn't quite sure what it was going to be so I couldn't create it ahead of time.

Nor did I have time in the week leading up to CropFest to create it! :)

The patterned paper from FabScraps was perfect for this photo of Connor that I had taken when he was seven.  I wanted to document his love of the written word and how he became totally immersed while reading - a trait he inherited from me.  Gary always claims that he can have an entire conversation with me while I'm reading, only to have me look up at the end of it and say, "Did you say something?" :)

I layered the paper with a few FabScraps patterned paper strips, torn to length, some coordinating washi tape and a sheet torn from a weekly scheduler by o-check design graphics that I picked up at Chapters last year for $3 - one of my favourite finds so far!!  [It's called weekly scheduler (L) - key]

I created a little book as an embellishment, using cardstock, plain copy paper, twine and a small heart punch.  I debated using it for my journaling, but a) I think it may be too small and b) who's going to want to untie and tie that teeny book up to hear the story?!?

As I said earlier, I created the title and title mat using my Silhouette Cameo and the Titan One font.

And I'm sharing the cut file with you, just because I like ya'll so much! :)

(Note: When I click this link, it automatically downloads the file into my Downloads folder on my Mac - not sure what happens on a PC?  Can someone please leave me a comment and let me if it auto-downloads or if a dialogue box pops up?)
