Up to the Falls - Video

Happy Tuesday!  I have a layout and video today.

Last spring I did this layout using 3 photos and I really liked the arrangement.  So with 3 photos to work with again, I used the same design for the layout above.  Here is the sketch:

Feel free to use the sketch for your pages.  If you publish the pages on your blog or other site, please give a link back to this post.  The video goes through from sketch all the way to the final embellishments.

Emphasis is on the stamping on the background and choosing embellishments. There are some tips if you are nervous about stamping on your pages.  This starts about 4 1/2 minutes into the video.   Stamps really make your pages your own.

I also cut some designs from pattern paper for embellishment.  Sometimes I find it tough to use these cute prints in large amounts.  The little wooden stars from Studio Calico are a great accent.  I think they are the casual version of rhinestones or pearls for scattering over your layout.

Watch at YouTube

The focus of this layout was more on the hike than the actual falls.  Jaime and Dillon rushed ahead and Nai Nai practically drug her feet with every step and stayed back with us 'old folks.'  She is not a nature lover.  She complained all the way then suddenly asked us, "Which kid is your favorite, me or Dillon?"  Lenny responded, "You mean right now?  Right now which is the favorite?"  It was funny.

Thanks for watching!

  7. I love watching your videos. Since watching this one I have been searching for the tree and leaf stamps. I wonder if you could tell me the. Name of the stamp collection.

    1. The tree and leaf stamps are Season of Friendship by Stampin' Up! It is a retired set. You can often find retired sets on E-bay. Thanks for watching!
