Scrapbook Sunday: Surfer Girl
I hope you all are enjoying this Father’s Day Sunday. The Dad in our household is out of town, so we’ll be saving our Father’s Day festivities for later in the week, which means I had some time today to scrap. Last year our family vacation took place in San Diego, CA. My daughter attended a half-day surfing camp for the very first time. I finally got around to scrapbooking the photos taken by the professional photographer the camp hired to take photos of the kids from inside the water, instead of the far away shots from the shore I’d been trying to take all week long with little success.
I am really proud of how this page turned out. It took me a while to put it together but it was so worth it. These beautiful papers are from Hot Off the Press’ Happy Days Paper Pack. One of the sheets in this pack has a beautiful chevron border across the top and banners along one top corner. I could’ve just used that sheet and made it a lot easier on myself. But I really liked this blue scalloped paper for these water-themed photos. So I set out to recreate a similar design.
I created the chevron border by cutting along the edges of the chevron off of one overall chevron patterned paper. Then I used Lawn Fawn Bannerific stamp set to create the banner.
Lawn Fawn’s Critters by the Sea was perfect for creating little embellishments around the page, like this little turtle. I first stamped him on the yellow paper and then on the orange patterned paper, and yes I cut out each orange scale and glued it onto the yellow turtle. Time consuming, but I just love how he looks and my daughter is a big turtle fan, so I had to do it.
For the title I turned to my trusty Silhouette to cut out the letters. I love how that little fish looks on the G, even though he wasn’t part of the original plan. I edged all the letters with a black marker and when I was doing the G I got a little bit of the marker onto it. How to fix it? I stamped the little fish onto the yellow paper, cut him out and viola!, the marker mistake was covered and added a cute little element to the title.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
