Sister Layout

So as we are trying to decide weekly what layouts to do, the ladies decided we should do a Sister/s or Sister-in-Law layout. I also used on this layout my favorite stamps of all time…Magnolia stamps…I love them, so I showed the girls how to use copic markers, watercolor pencils to color our little darling.

I decided to use pictures of my two daughters who are so close and believe me, they have a lot of pictures of each other…I dare say over 500 or more, some really nice, posed photos and many, many silly photos…that make me laugh…I so love my girls…I hope you enjoy or layouts.

Our mat size were (2) 6 1/4 x 4 1/4 and (5) 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 adding faux stitching along the border. Also one 2 x 5 inch, For the layout we used 12 x 12 background and top strip is 1 1/2 x 12, middle is 2 x 7, and then 7 x 12 and bottom is 3 1/2 and we used a tear ruler for the edging, this is page one…on page 2 you just choose which colors you want to start with, making sure that it pulls your focus from page one to page two…so you start with at the top, 2 x 5, 2x7, then your bottom strip is the same as the first page, and on some of the layouts, they did it a little different in the middle. Our flowers were cut with Scal2 and then chalked and then we used a stylis and curled the ends of the flowers and added buttons in the center…We were going to emboss the letters for SISTERS, but someone had borrowed the Sizzix from the store and I forgot to bring my Cuttlebug…but they still came out really nice…what do you think? Be sure to leave your comments and we love to hear them. Enjoy!
