SG June Blog Hop

bloghop header



Welcome to the SG Blog Hop for June, if this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link. Here is the list in case you get lost

For my layout I chose to use one of the downloads available in SG's online store.  I used this one and stayed pretty close to the original sketch for my pages.  I love that you can purchase individual sketches, or in this case a double set, for only $0.99.  Can't beat that price!

For some reason I really struggled with my paper choice with these.  But I went with it and stuck through to the end.  I lucked out and discovered that when I bought the papers (an older My Mind's Eye collection) I had also purchased the label stickers and the decorative brads.  Here's the entire two page spread.

Sorry for the bad light - I finished just after the sun went down.  Since I only have a few sets of thickers I quickly realized that what I do have, was not going to work for my title like I was planning.  So I downloaded a free font and cut it out twice on my Cameo and made my own "thickers".  The title is actually a quote from Winnie the Pooh I found online.  I was not able to think of anything cute on my own, so I borrowed from a silly old bear! 

Here's some close ups of the details:

  1. This is what I love about SG LOs/sketches. The ability to put a ton of pics highlight some details using smaller pictures and still have them look clean and unified! TFS
