What a great way to start off my Friday post!  I love giving away goodies to our awesome hoppers!  So fun!  Ok, for today’s post with my super Study Abroad kit I used nearly all the black and white papers in the kit.  I added a few of the A sides with a few pops of yellow scattered around my layout.  I also printed this Instagram photo of our girls in black and white to create a mostly black and white layout.  I started with a 12×12 sheet of American Crafts card stock (new in our school store) and dug out my Heidi Swapp 12×12 inch hearts stencil.  I laid the stencil over my card stock and sprayed some Sunshine My Huey’s mist at a 45 degree angle across the cardstock.  This allowed for there to be a gradual fade of the spray ink across the card stock.  After the ink dried, I started playing with my placement and used many of the smaller pieces of paper from cutting into my fabulous kit last week!  I also included a few little Heidi Swapp stamps I picked up last week and a couple fabulous cut files from The Cut Shoppe, 3×4 Flash Cards.



Another fun little design element I added to my layout was some stamping with the Lawn Fawn Wish You Were Here set, which is on sale in our shop right now.  This fun stamp set has some great arrows, cute little heart and sweet sentiments included in it.  I stamped multiple arrows throughout my layout, all pointing towards our daughters.  I also stamped up to three times without adding additional ink to the stamp. Erica does this too and I always love the look of it!

Did you happen to notice the little phrases throughout this fabulous Studio Tekturek map paper?  There are a bunch so take a closer look at yours!  I cut of this little section that says I Love You and added it for another pop of color (shown in the lower right of the photo below).



Alright, that wraps up today’s Locker Room post.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my mostly black and white layout with the pops of yellow!  Now it’s time to use up my sweet Study Abroad scraps and whip up some cards!

  5. fun layout, jody!! you play with all the patterns so well!!


  6. I really, really, really like this page. They aren’t patterns and colors I often use together and there is something about your layout that is really soft and fun. I love layers so off the bat I was drawn in. And I suck at using stamps so the way you stamped the arrows…genius!
