Take 2 challenge: Sugar & Spice

By Jung AhSang

June 27, 2016

Hey guys!  I’m super excited to be taking part of the Take 2.  For this, I was challenged to scrap lift a layout from a previous kit or Design Team member’s layout.  Since I am relatively new to the design team, I was looking around in the ideas tab on the Scrapbook Circle website.  There is so much inspiration in that tab, but when I came across Gina Lideros’s You are my Favorite ideas from July 2015, I spotted a layout that I had to scrap lift!

Here is her layout:

Here is my layout:

I was so inspired by the giant alpha in Gina’s layout!  Even though the letters are so huge, the small photo still manages to shine.  For my layout, I used the June Now or Never kit.  I hand cut some letters out of the Pink Fresh studio confetti hearts paper (the pink is side B of this paper).  You can see my tech tip post here on how I make & hand cut my own oversized letters without a cutting machine.  Then I created by background.  I cut down a piece of white cardstock, and mounted it to the Bella Blvd black & white floral stripes paper.  (Tip: when I use a patterned paper as a background frame under another piece of paper, I always cut out a square from the middle to save and use it on another project, since you won’t see that it’s missing.)  I sewed along the edges to give it some texture.  Next, I aligned all my letters, leaving room for my photo, on the paper.  Once I was satisfied with how everything was looking, I glued all the letters down using a T ruler to help keep everything straight.  I added my photo, embellished by layers of paper, Elle’s Studio cut out hearts, a heart from the Illustrated Faith enamel heart, and an arrow punched from the same Bella Blvd black & white floral stripes paper.  I also added 2 punched butterflies to fill in some of the negative space, and to kind of mimic the triangle stencils in Gina’s layout.

I absolutely love how this layout turned out.  I don’t think I would have ever tried such a bold title if I hadn’t seen it on Gina’s layout.  I hope you’re inspired too, to create and perhaps make your own Take 2 layout!

Have a beautiful day!
