The October Afternoon Ducks In A Row papers can be used for layouts about babies and toddlers but they don't have to be. Which is good because I had something else in mind.
I love this photo of my eldest son using his new-found skills to read a story to my youngest son and thought the Splish Splash paper emphasised the big brother helping/leading the little brother aspect of the moment. I also thought that the Lullaby alphabet paper was perfect for a layout about reading!
It's barely visible in these photos but I used a mask to add some yellow Glimmer Mist to the Sleep Tight paper.
I made the scalloped frame by edging a rectangle of Peek-a-Boo paper with the Threading Water Fiskars Border Punch and then cutting out the centre. The frame felt a bit fragile for my next step so I temporarily adhered it to a sheet of copier paper. I dampened the frame and then crumpled it fairly vigorously. Once the frame had completely dried, I used sandpaper to distress it some more.
I cut the butterflies from felt and transparency using QuicKutz dies. I then embellished the transparency butterflies with Stickles in turquoise. The transparency layer is stuck to the felt layer using Glossy Accents.
I created the bingo card in Microsoft Excel and the little butterfly is punched from card using a Martha Stewart punch and covered in yellow Stickles.
The journalling spot was made with the digital equivalent of a journalling stamp. Papermaze don't have that particular stamp in stock at the moment but this, this, this or this would make a good substitute.
I finished the layout with a couple more butterflies and quite a bit more Stickles which I think just may be my new favourite product!
