Hi friends, it’s Samantha! The title of my scrapbook page “don’t let your dreams be dreams’ is a lyric from a Jack Johnson song Dreams Be Dreams.
My little Menn are getting older every day, and they don’t hesitate to tell me! But when I check on them at night, and they still cuddle their stuffed animals, and dream their little dreams, they’re still just the baby boys I used to rock to sleep!
To create my layout, I started by using the Starry Sky Stencil and translucent embossing paste to create the starry, textured background. Then once it was dry, I used watercolors in blues, mints and greys to create the swoopy background, over the stars! Once the watercolor was dry, I used the star stencil again and using only the largest star in the stencil and white embossing paste, I used added even more texture!
I used vellum, white cardstock and frosted gift bags from my stash to back my photos! Then I popped them up on foam tape, and attached it to the background. I stamped the small letters using Violet’s ABC’s around the swirls! The “dreams” words were die cut out of white cardstock with Cole’s ABCs. I added some grey and gold watercolor and popped them up with foam tape so they stand out a little more!
Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous scrapbook page with us today, Samantha!
