Hello Handsome | 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!

This week the inspiration for my page comes from my photo. I loved the light colour of the sandstone column my son is leaning on in this photo. The blue shirt he is wearing is a great contrast against the light background too. I pulled out some of the woodgrain elements and some of the blue tone things from the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection to help coordinate everything.

I started out by adhering the 'B' side of the moustache paper horizontally to a plain white cardstock background. I then took one of the 12inch stickers from the sticker sheet and stuck it to the bottom of the paper. 
I placed some craft foam underneath my photo to pop it up off the page. I like how this creates dimension and shadows.

I cut one of the bingo cards from the Bingo Cards paper and then layered one of the fuss cut 3' x 4' journal cards over the top of the bingo card. I used craft foam again here to pop it up, creating the dimension and shadows that I love. On the left of the photo, I added one of the banners fussy cut out from the 3' x 4' journal cards paper again under my photo I also added one of the layered stickers here for extra interest. Some of the wood veneer pieces were placed for embellishments and some of the word stickers too. Lastly, I added the date stamp and some splats of mist to finish my page. The washi tape strip was alsoplacedat the bottom of the page.

Happy creating!

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.

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.
