CKC Layout

Lissette and I got together to scrap the other day and thought it would be fun if we each worked on a simple layout of our trip to CKC. Well it was fun, but I don't know about simple. I started with a sketch from the Scrappy Chick's Scrappy Sketch Sunday ( But even with Cyndi Bundy's great sketch as a road map, I spent over an hour moving pictures around. (Of course I had one too many horizontal pictures.) I was happy with the final layout. Here it is:

It was one of those Murphy Law kind of days where everything I touched went wrong. Thank goodness for the circle elements in the original layout because that giant brad is covering a big ink stain on the Technique Tuesday Tile!

Journaling reads: Lissette and I shopped and cropped until we dropped at CKC Valley Forge. Highlights include winning door prizes, meeting Stacy Croninger and talking to Ana at the Technique Tuesday booth!

Another problem I had with the layout was that I felt there was too much black space showing on the top and bottom of the mat on the second page. To fill it in, I stamped the image I used on the tile with VersaMark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Ingredients: DCWV Cardstock; Basic Grey Scarlet Letter patterned paper; Studio G Series 11 stamp; Archival Ink Jet Black, Stampin Up! Bravo Burgundy, and VersaMark inks; Kaiser brads; Technique Tuesday Square Tile; Clear Stamp N Stuff embossing powder; Stampin Up! black marker; EZ Laser Designs die cut title.
