Hello Unity friends! Today I’d like to share with you the scrapbook layout I did for the Unity NSD sketch challenge. I used two of favourite Unity Stamps on this one: the banner from the March Kit of the Month and the “Smiles” sentiment from the Donna Downey Insightful Meadows set (along with a few others). All of the papers are from My Mind’s Eye (LOVE LOVE LOVE this line ---- must.buy.more LOL!) with the exception of the doily in the background which is from Wilton.
I hand cut out some of the Polaroid type frames from one of the sheets of paper in the collection and then printed my photos to fit inside (that was no easy feat let me tell you!!). I also used some Photoshop Actions from The Pioneer Woman to make my photos look aged to blend with the paper. I also modified the sketch a little and used some hexagon paper under my photos instead of the scallops like in the sketch.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
