Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday | March 2013

Welcome to the March 2013 Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday!

March's stamp set is called The Story:

DIGITAL MEMORY KEEPER? A digital set that uses these same sentiments is available here: Story Sentiment Stacks

Here's a look at my 8.5x11 layout:

I used RadLab from Totally Rad to adjust this full-page 8.5x11 photo of Anna. I wanted it to look similar to an old polaroid (that would then be framed with the polka dot vellum).

I hand-cut the vellum frame to go around the 8.5x11 photo of Anna. The vellum is from Dear Lizzy's Neapolotan collection. Before printing the photo I added text using Mom's Typewriter font.

When I was adding the vellum as a frame I realized that I had made it too tall. To fix that I folded a bit along each of the sides and adhered it together with rolling adhesive. Ends up looking like a little pleat along either side (they are off-center of one another).

I used two Close To My Heart inks with the stamp.

I trimmed the stamped image, rounded the corners, hand-drew the lines with the little hearts and adhered using foam dots.

Along the top I created a cluster of vertical elements that includes washi tape and chipboard accents from My Mind's Eye. These went both on top of and below the vellum border.

I folded the edges a tiny bit on the washi tape to add a little extra texture. I also stamped "life is good" from this month's stamp set along the printed text. Here's another look at the complete layout:
