Emma- American Crafts

Play it again Sam.
by Emma Trout

White Bazzill cardstock
Patterned papers: American Crafts, Backyard (Sizzle, Snap)
Teen (Talent Show, Sadie Hawkins, Teachers Pet, Honor Roll)
Baby (Jack Be Nimble, Mary Quite Contrary)
KI Memories Love, Elsie - Roxie (Funky Fun)
Rub-ons- Luxe Designs
Alphas- American Crafts foam Thickers, Basic Grey white chip
Acrylic paint, brads, gems, string pearls, Pearl dabber.

Cut a 2” strip of Honor Roll paper and glue on right edge of layout. Sponge white acrylic paint along the edge. On top of this add a thin strip of Snap paper and a thinner strip of Talent show.
Cut out white swirls from Bazzill cardstock and add on top (I used a Bo Bunny swirl as a template).
Draw a ‘curtain’ from Mary Quite Contrary paper, doodle and glue to the left of the Honor Roll paper.
Cut around the photo and mark the position in the centre of the layout. Paint a green/aqua floor And paint splashes that go around the photo. Add the Luxe Designs rub-on circle.
Cut out a ‘spotlight’ from the Sizzle paper and add to the layout so it goes behind the photo. When dry, add photo.
Create a ‘pelmet’ by adding layered pieces of Jack Be Nimble, Honor Roll and Teacher’s Pet. Glue into place at the top of layout and sponge with acrylic paint along the edge. Add pearl string.
Add gems, brads and torn pieces of Love, Elsie musical notes paper around the layout.
Paint Basic Grey alpha with Pearl dabber. When dry, add to layout with the Thickers.
Add journaling, finished!
