June Studio AE from Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Studio AE from Technique Tuesday blog hop.

June's stamp is called Life Right Now:

A similar digital version of this set is available here.

Here's a look at my layout:

Simple white cardstock background. Outline machine stitching. Simple photo (that I love). Simple journaling about her life right now at age 3.

Here's a look at some of the details:

I started out by using my sewing machine to stitch a foundation and then embossed the "life right now" stamp with Zing Brown Sugar embossing powder.

Underneath I cut and adhered a flower accent from Crate Paper's Pretty Party Chipboard Accents.

Above the photo I added the circle three which was cut (with a circle punch) from Crate Paper's Tag Cuts 12x12 Storyteller Paper. I added another line of stitching and some more of those wood veneer stars from Studio Calico (using glossy accents).

Below the chipboard flower piece I embossed "love this" and added stitched lines for my journaling.

In the opposite corner I added a couple words.

On top of the flower chipboard I stapled a letter "A" from the cork alpha is from Close To My Heart.

    LOVE IT! (As usual!) You are such an inspiration to so many.

    I have a question about that Epson printer. I have been thinking of getting one for scrapping on the go and looked at this one and the Epson Charm. There is a big price difference between the two - are the features of the Show worth the extra cost over the Charm? I have also heard that the ink/paper combo is expensive and that the ink doesn't last long. Any comments or suggestions? Do you like it better than the Canon Selphy that you had?

    Wow, I really, really love this layout!! Usually I'm not a huge fan of simplistic layouts, but this one is so awesome!!! I also love the theme of this page - description of what life is like at the moment. I have a few pages that do that and I love them. I just really like being able to come back to them and know what my life was at that point in time and what has changes since then.
    Thanks so much for sharing!!
