Wild About You

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson| Wild About You

I love it when a project turns out exactly as I’d pictured it – it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like, but when it does, I’m over the moon about it! Today I have one of those projects to share with you, I hope you like it as much as I do 🙂

Little Paper Party, Pieces and Patterns, Pick a Pattern DSP,12

I was looking at all the detailed paper in the Pick a Pattern (available June 1) paper pack when it struck me that the photos on one of the sheets would look even cuter with a picture on them, I tossed up between the dinosaurs and the woodland creatures and a sweet little T-rex is the star of my photo shoot 🙂

There was a lot of fussy cutting involved –   which this paper pack is perfect for – but was well worth the effort. I remember this style of polaroid camera when I was a kid – I know, I’m showing my age – and how there was the thrill of an instant photo, but no editing,  you just got what you shot. I didn’t want to waste my dino butts and thought they were the perfect nod to some of the “fail” photos from that time 😉

I adhered the camera and falling photos onto a strip of paper from the same pack, I love the boldness of this design and there are several other great background patterns in the rest of this pack as well.

The dinosaur and camera were stamped in Sahara Sand onto Whisper White cardstock and I added a sentiment in Emerald Envy from the coordinating Pieces and Patterns (available June 1) stamp set. I die cut this using the 3rd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and die cut a frame in Emerald Envy using the 2nd and 3rd largest to layer behind.

Inside got some love as well! I added another background strip of the same DSP and more fussy cut cameras and photos. Love the flash at the top 🙂

Little Paper Party, preorder Annual Catalogue 2017,42

I took some quick shots of my pre-order goodies and this is the paper pack and stamp set I used for today’s project. You can’t see all the DSP patterns but you can see the camera and dinosaur sheets I used.

This DSP and stamp set have an eclectic mix of imagery that really appeals to me and I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of it over the coming year. I can see lots more fussy cutting in my future!

I hope you liked today’s project as much as I enjoyed making it – my boys were sadly shaking their heads over my enthusiasm 😉 and if you’d like any of the new products I used today they’ll be available June 1, not long to wait now 🙂
