Journey | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park

The Rocket Ships paper from the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection is so cool so I decided to cut out a rocket ship using my Silhouette Cameo and used the rocket paper to back it. I then used foam tape to give it dimension and pop it up off the page.

I used the Boy Dog Days paper over to the left of the 'B' side of the Stripes paper to break up some of the red. I layered a 3' x 4' journal card underneath my photo and then placed the photo tucked into the left side of the rocket ship.  

To embellish I used lots of the stickers from the sticker sheet and some of the wood veneer from the September Skies collection. I made the triangles look like it was fire coming out of the rocket ship and the star chippie piece at the top is meant for a firework. I also layered one of the dimensional stickers over the rocket as well.
Thanks for stopping by the Sassy blog today! I hope I have inspired you to check out the Sassy store for boy collections!

Happy creating!

I Moustache You A Question | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!
It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park

As soon as I saw that moustache paper in the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection I just knew I was going to create a layout with this title! Lately my husband has been saying this quote as though it has just been invented!! I am not sure if he had just never heard it before but he says it heaps now and he cracks himself up every time! To get this photo, I made my youngest son pose for me with the black cardstock moustache that I cut out on my Cameo machine! I then used the same moustache to embellish the page with!

I didn't want to use a full sheet of the moustache paper as its a little too busy on its own so I used some of the 'B' side of the Rocket Ships paper to break it up a little bit. I placed a piece of it vertically and also cut two strips from the Stripes paper and placed those at the very edges of the page.
I matted my photo using one of the cards from the 3' x 4' journalling cards paper  and placed it on craft foam and adhered it in the very centre of the page.

I layered a strip of the yellow globe paper vertically underneath the photo plus I used the journalling card with the moustache to layer some embellishments over. I used some foam dots underneath the big moustache to create some dimension and shadows, the moustache forms part of the title. The rest of the title is made up from the alphabet stickers from the sticker sheet. I also added a few of the word stickers and a couple of pieces of wood veneer from the wood veneer pack. I cut a word off the washi tape roll too.

You Will Move Mountains | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Tarrah McLean

Hope you had a great interNational 
Scrapbook weekend Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park

Being a mother of 2 sons, I do love a good boy range so when I saw the boy version of the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection, I just knew I wanted to get it and create with it!

I started with the Makes Cents woodgrain paper as my base paper and then trimmed the blue spot strip and the top yellow piece from the Border Stripes paper, I then adhered both of these to the very top of the page.


I also cut a 1/2 inch strip from the Stripes paper and added that to under the yellow paper. I took the zigzag sticker from the sticker sheet and also added that under the stripes paper. I then took the 3' x 4' journal cards page and cut some of the cards to add as layers under my photo.

I also fussy cut the tag from the 3' x 4' journal cards paper  and tucked the tag into the left of my photo. I added a couple of the wood veneer pieces from the September Skies pack by Heidi Swapp and my title is made up from the alphabet stickers on the sticker sheet. I added some of that awesome washi tape to some plain white cardstock and then adhered it to the very bottom of the page. I then added another wood veneer piece above the washi strip and layered a word sticker over the top of the wood veneer piece.
Lastly, I added a flair button from my stash and finished off the page with some white mist splatters and the date stamp.

Thanks for stopping by the Sassy blog today! I hope I have inspired you to check out the Sassy store for boy collections!

Happy creating!

Whimsical Cards | Paige Evans/Pink Paislee | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have some cards to share with you using the gorgeous Whimsical collection by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee. This is my last project using this collection! Stay tuned for something new in the coming weeks!

This week I was really stretched for supplies from my last kit so I decided I would make some super quick cute cards to use up the last of the leftovers! I cut and folded 2 white background card bases and decided to have one portrait and one landscape style.

With the card above, I had some fringing left over from a previous layout so I decided to make use of it by trimming it down to fit the card base. I then adhered the exact same paper behind the fringe to make it look like it was one piece. I added one of the chipboard frames in the centre of the card and added some stickers and a paper strip.
The card below I added both a chipboard and sticker frame and also layered another sticker over the top of the chipboard. I added some banners below and also a couple of the leaf die-cuts. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to purchase any 6' x 6' paper pad from the Sassy store and create a fun project with it!

Happy creating!

Sweet Thing | Paige Evans/Pink Paislee Whimsical | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share with you using the gorgeous Whimsical collection by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee. This is my last layout using this collection! Stay tuned for something new in the coming weeks!

As this is my last layout using the gorgeous Whimsical collection, I found that I had lots of the flower die-cuts left over so I chose to cut out a wreath style design cut file. The cut file design had some flowers already incorporated on it however I wanted to use lots of the colourful ones to overlap and highlight. 

I adhered the cut file straight onto some white cardstock and then began to layer lots of the flowers in clusters around the wreath.
I matted my photo using one of the papers from the 6' x 6' paper pad and placed it over to the left of the page.

I chose the 'Sweet Thing' chipboard piece as my title and placed it to the right of my photo. I added a few other cute embellishments around the photo also, including puffy stickers, die-cuts and stickers. I added the word 'Whimsy' from the die-cut pack too as I liked the pop of blue down in that area.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to purchase any 6' x 6' paper pad from the Sassy store and try out a layout like this one!

Happy creating!

Tarrah x
