Summer Survival Spotlight: Kim Kwan!! Week 4

The Apple WonThe Inspiration behind the Layout
After watching my youngest daughter, Olivia, try to eat an apple the other day without her two newly missing bottom teeth, I knew the October Afternoon patterned paper would be perfect for a layout about my tooth-less sweetie pie! While this layout is certainly far more “linear” than my normal style, after adding a few simple cuts with a deco scissor and a little bling, I’m already excited to add this one to her scrapbook! Designer Notes!
I love using scraps to create my own embellishments and accents, and quite frankly, I love finding uses for all those little bits and scraps!

For this layout, the simple act of hand-cutting one of the cute little apples from the patterned paper then popping it up on a stack of scrap circles really dressed up the layout.

Adding some cardstock strips cut with a deco scissors and gussied up with a little bling was also an easy way to accessorize.

Also, if you can’t find “just the right” alpha sticker or rub-on for your project, why not just print it out on your computer? For this layout, I simply typed my text into Microsoft Word, printed it onto white paper and snipped each letter out individually. Cheap and easy custom text!
