to start from the beginning.
January 6th is a very special day in the Latin World. It is a very special day for me as well because my son Danny (my 1st born) was delivered on this special day 14 years ago!! Wow, I cannot believe my oldest turned 14 today!! Happy Birthday Danny!!
For my project I made this layout. I love making layouts! It's what I started out making and then jumped into cards and crafts. The other thing I like making are digital layouts. Just recently I started combining both digital and traditional scrapbooking to make a hybrid layout.
I started off by printing my pictures on my 12x12 photo paper with the background that I want to use.
The program I like to use is Arcsoft Print Creations.
As you can see, it is very plain with no titles or embellishments.
Another great thing about this is you can crop, resize and add any kind of border to
your pictures to get them just perfect.
Next comes the fun part! I get to embellish my page with the traditional technique of scrapping.
Just like any traditional layout, you add anything you like to it...titles, die cuts, journaling, flowers,etc.
I cut the title using Calligraphy Collection (the,gift) and Robots (Perfect).
The flowers are Prima and Recollections.
My 3 Wise Men are cut using my Imagine and Winter Frolic cart.
Added some Stickles here and there for a little bit of bling.
I cut the tag with Tags, Bags,Boxes and More cart.
The journaling is computer generated.
