Welcome to some Cutting Cafe Inspiration! This time around it's Anything Goes! Regina let us pick any file we wanted to work with and I chose the Polaroid and Camera Fun Template and Printable Set.
I decided although this is a layout from a Santa Train Ride, I wanted to use these Jack papers and complements... I mean ... Santa is kind of lumberjacky isn't he?...lol!
I used the cutting files on this two page layout using pics from (so) long ago! The cameras, the hearts, the flash and all of those black arrows, the filmstrips and the awesome polaroid frames that frame some of my favorite pics are all in the cutting file!
Along with some ephemera I had, some extras on my desk from previous projects, and a few diecuts I love the way this layout came out. When I decided to do a layout, I went to one of my favorite places for inspiration, Yvonne Yam's blog Do More With Less and one of the many gorgeous and fun layouts in this post here! Can you tell which one?
I'm playing along with the Heart2Heart Challenge, Picture Perfect! I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to Add A Sentiment.
Don't you just LOVE those cameras??? So cute cut from patterned paper. There is also a polaroid camera in the cutting file and two larger ones that are shaped cards! Not to mention a bunch of really cute printable sentiments. That Happy die has been sitting on my desk for months... MONTHS! It ended up being too big for the card I wanted to it for and I'm so happy because I love using it on this one!
So yeah... that's me with my two boys.. they are 28 and 23 now!!... and that smile of mine...lol... that's what you get when I try to smile for a picture and why most of the time I prefer to be behind the camera...lol!
I had originally cut the polaroid frames from white paper, but with all of the white in the background they got lost and then I came across this cool print in the paper pack and knew it would be awesome... I think I was right. I layered them over the white ones because it made for a thicker frame. Most of the snowflakes were leftovers and the cups of cocoa are from MFT. And yes, I'm missing some journaling, but I'll add that before I put it away... maybe...lol!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll try out this Polaroid and Camera fun file! It did make for a lot of fun on this layout.
