Double Page Layout With Fussy Cut Photos

Today I have a double page layout with fussy cut photos. My Christmas wish is rarely for a purchasable gift since I prefer experiences and such. For December of 2016 I asked the kids for a photo for Christmas. I wanted a photo of all of us in "ugly Christmas sweaters" that we had made ourselves. Si decided on Toothless and we found a free pattern on google. We cut the little dragon out of felt and Si spent several days stitching him on.
Pins & Needles ~
 I fussy cut Si out of each photo and used foam circles to adhere him to the Rinea Jade Starstruck Foiled Paper circle in the center.
 In honor of the Christmas season I used wood trees around the edges of the 8" circle in varying sizes.
 The five scalloped circle frames are die cut from Rinea Ebony Glossy Foiled Paper. I stitched a diagonal line across the cardstock and two of the frames.
For this first layout I used the Scrap the Boys: March Sketch. I found it through Laura Whitaker's Instagram account. I have quite a preference for her sketches and was pleased to see another option for this month. Since I have plenty of photos of my own boy I was ready to play along.
When Si finished his sweater he was rather proud of it. I was proud of him for sticking to the project and for such excellent work. We decided to include a fish wrapped with a ribbon as a Christmas gift from Toothless to Hiccup. Si proudly stood next to the tree for a photo.
~ Si-made ~
 The flowers are die cut from both Jade and Ebony Rinea Foiled Paper. I stacked and glued them then curled the petals with the handle of my craft knife.
 The tree shape is layers of Rinea Jade Glossy Foiled Paper and foam circles Each layer of the tree and the photo mat are at different heights.
 Just a few more wood trees on either side of this layout to match the ones on Pins and Needles. The single photo mat is Rinea Jade Glossy Foiled Paper and the double size photo mat is Rinea Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper.
I used Stuck?! Sketches March 1st Sketch for this second layout. I used a tree shape in place of the circle as the background. The layered die-cut flowers represent the stars. The strips were a perfect place to add some of my extensive washi collection. I DO love that sticky stuff. 😍😍😍
The two layouts together tell the tale of a boy and his hand-sewn sweater. What a cutie!!!
This month the color at the White...with 1 challenge blog is Crispy Lettuce, the very same shade as Rinea Jade Foiled Paper. I thoroughly enjoyed playing along at White...with 1 using both the glossy and starstruck finishes of Jade. Stop by the blog and see the lovely prizes up for grabs!

  1. Oh I love the idea of the ugly sweatshirt - so cool, and the title of your page pins and needles is perfect! Great memory to scrap! Thanks for joining us at White ... with 1 :)


      I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
