Dads play an important role in our lives. They give us advice, teach us how to do things, make us laugh, protect and provide for our families, grill us delicious steaks and hamburgers, and MORE! Take some time this weekend to capture a snapshot of you with your dad or your children and their father and then create a scrapbook page honoring the dads in your life.
GUESS HOO LOVES YOU by Jana Eubank
While on a recent vacation, I snapped a quick shot of my husband with our children and I couldn’t wait to create a scrapbook page about the special relationship that they share. I used the woodsy setting as the jumping off point for my page and chose to use the cute owl images from the Hoot ‘N’ Holler Lite cartridge.
I grounded the page elements by placing them all on a background shape cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge. The Hoot ‘N’ Holler cuts are anchored on circles and ovals cut from the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge that came with my Cricut Expression Machine. I added machine stitching around a few of the elements to add a homespun touch.
A few gems and dimensional stickers from my scrapbook stash, as well as a ribbon tied add dimension and texture to the page. Forgot to leave a place for your journaling? No problem! Write your sentiments on a few office tags and tuck behind a photo.
QUICK TIP: Don’t be afraid to use patterned paper. Tone-on-tone prints in any pattern work wonderfully with your Cricut cuts! For the green layers on my owls, I used bicycle patterned paper. You wouldn’t think this would work, but because it is a tone-on-tone pattern it blends right in!
Have a Wonderful Father’s Day Weekend!
