Hi Everyone! Jill Cassity here to share a family memories layout with you.
HE CAUGHT IT! by Jillian Deiling Cassity
Last year at our wedding we did the traditional bouquet and garter toss. When I threw my bouquet a big battle ensued, a huge group of my single friends and family were battling over the bouquet, it was hilarious! When it was my husband’s turn to throw his garter though… he threw it over his shoulder, we turned around and saw a group of guys staring at it sitting on the floor, no one wanted to touch it! When my son realized that no one else was going to grab it, he made a beeline for it and snatched it off the floor and started jumping up and down, giggling and holding the garter in the air. He was so excited! My husband and I proceeded to tell him that his catching the garter meant that he was going to be the next boy to get married. My son’s response was “Ewww!”.
I saved the garter with the intent to scrapbook these photos and the garter together on a scrapbook page but I couldn’t figure out how exactly to do it. When I sat down with the printed photos, my Cricut and a variety of scrapbook supplies it was actually pretty easy how to figure out how to go about putting the page together. I simply used a fun Crate Paper wooden clothes pin to pin the garter to the Cricut cut banner. I cut the banner using the Pretty Pennants Cartridge. I cut pink and yellow pennants out of patterned paper and cardstock and then I cut the same pennant shape from vellum as well. I layered the vellum pennants over the colorful pennants and slightly curled the bottoms of the vellum pennants in order to show the patterned paper and cardstock pennants underneath. To finish off the banner I cut smaller pennants in white cardstock, covered them in clear glitter Stickles and adhered them over the vellum pennants
I used the Noah’s ABC Animals Cartridge font to cut my title in green patterned paper. I added small brown Prima alphabet stickers to finish off the title. I fussy cut flowers from the Crate Paper and arranged them in bunches through out the page. To make the page even more flowery I added some pretty paper and fabric flowers.
