#158 Scrappy Moms Sneak Peek 4, Watermelon Layout and Hop Winner!!
Hi everyone I hope you all are having a great day! I was so excited when I saw that Cooking with the Cricut was having a watermelon challenge, so I decided to make a pre-made sb page for pictures of my son eating watermelon last summer. I am so bad at getting my pictures printed out right away and I usually don't make a lot of pre-made pages, I guess I forget that you can do that LOL!
For the background paper I used Kraft cardstock along with.......Christmas Paper!!! Yep! I can't believe I was able to pull it off! I was scared to use Christmas patterned paper at first, but then I thought it would be genius since a watermelon is naturally green/red and white. This Christmas paper is from the American Crafts Christmas stack that I got at Tuesday morning for less then $5. The watermelon cuts are from Simply Charmed and these ants invading the page are from Kate's ABC's. The title Mmmm is from Graphically Speaking, along with American Crafts alphabet stickers. I stamped the "Juicy" watermelon with Scrappy Moms Stamps GOOD EATS which is my 4th Sneak Peak as a Guest Designer. which is my faces on the melons with PKS Boy Mates, and stamped the ants eyes with PKS Everyday Paper Dolls. For a final touch I added white rick-rack and did some REAL stitching with my Sew Easy!!
I have to thank Marianne from Facebook her blog is Paper or Fabric Crafter she was so sweet and sent me a RAK which was embroidery floss for my new Sew Easy, I used a dark green color here for the stitching. Thank you so much Marianne!! That was so super nice of you, I felt like it was Christmas!! Make sure to check out her amazing talent HERE
