studio G Challenge Time SGC6 - Title Piece


On Paper Craft Planet Studio G Collectors group Marti challenged us to create title piece for a scrapbook layout of any size using our studio G stamps.

My husband had asked me a while ago to buy an album to store all the cards I have made for him. I bought an 8x8 scrapbook album in navy blue, his favorite color and placed all the cards one per page. The cards fit nicely in this 8x8 album. I needed to create a starting title page so I got inspired by this challenge to use my studio G stamps to help me create one.

This is my starting page:


The title piece for the scrapbook layout was created using Cricut Design Studio where I welded circles from the Cricut George cartridge and the word Cards from the Cricut Don Juan cartridge. I then used the Cricut to cut the additional circles to frame the images. The images were chosen from various studio G stamp sets to represent the usual four cards I make for him throughout the year - for valentines, for birthdays, for our anniversary and for christmas! :)

Here is a closer look at title piece for the scrapbook layout:

My husband is pretty happy with his album. I am also happy with how this came out, exactly how I hoped - you know how it goes, sometimes what is in your head somehow never materializes exactly as you had in mind. But so far I only have this title page done and need to go back and make background layout for the actual cards - I will keep it simple because they are quite a few now and more to come, so I want to do something to make it easily repeatable.

This was FUN project using my darling Cricut and my studio G stamps - two of my favorite and most noticeable addictions :) !

Thanks for stopping by, have a good weekend!
