American Crafts Neopolitan Layout



I started this layout so long ago and finally made it happen this week. First I didn't have the sky vellum paper for the background and so I just put everything away, until I found a lady on FB that happen to be selling the paper and just received her package last week! So happy that I actually was able to find some still at this late date! Love that when that happens!! I special cut the title with my Cricut, and my Gypsy to turn the letters, and inserted them onto the banner. This was new for me to try and even learned to turn each letter so that they flowed like the banner. No, I haven't splurged for a Silhouette because I still seem to find a way to use the Cricut E-2instead. Anyway, because of Paper Crafter's Challenge for using a variety of fonts and words, and a large title separate from the page, this is the one layout I really wanted to make!!  Adding letters to the scooter, tags with writing on the front and backs, and the title meets those criteria, I think. Also, made a list of When, What, Where on the orange tag, which PCC also had mentioned.
Here's PaperCrafter's Corner Challenge:
Supplies: Cricut Cartridges used: Scooter (Sweethearts), Banner (Wedding), Font (Alphalicious). Paper: American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Silver lining (Vellum sky), Dreamy Days (far right side), Various cardstocks for cutting,  Echo Park (Orange dot). Gypsy used to make them the size I wanted and manipulated. Also, Cricut Explore for the scooter because I don't have that one, and done using another friends computer. Don't you love how we all share each other's things!!? Also, tags from my stash, and Scotch tape runner and Scrapbook Adhesive 3L for foam dots to pop up banner. Viva D├ęcor for headlight on scooter.

PaperCrafter's Challenge Week #61

This week has been super busy while I had carpet laid in all the bedrooms and craft room! That meant EVERYTHING had to be moved!!! Crazy! Well, after moving it out, I managed to get it moved back, and made this layout. Was inspired by Paper Crafter's Corner's inspiration of Week #61, here:
It reminded me of nostalgic times, of family fun days. I used the one word title and the colors of green, blue and red as well for my inspiration. So here is my layout of my 2 boys playing a family game together. This was many years ago, and they are now adults living away from home. Good family memories!
Here is the Paper Crafter's Corner Challenge #61 Link
Supplies used are EK Success Monopoly papers from 2003 which are only sold on ebay right now but I still had in my stash, of course!! ;) And stickers were the same.
