Silly Faces

Hello everyone! It’s Amber here with my second Design Team project for the month. Today I’m sharing another 12×12 layout featuring some fabulous patterned paper from Lilly Bee Design’s Memorandum Collection and some alphabet letter stickers from Lilly Bee Design’s Persnickety Collection.


I decided to use three smaller photos of our dog Lexis for this layout. As I was going through my photo stash I came across these three photos of Lexis making her usual silly faces so I just had to use them and title my layout “You & All Your Silly Faces”.


I had lots of fun creating the title for this layout. Its pretty easy. Since I don’t own a die cutting machine I try to challenge myself and replicate the look on my own by using templates and an exacto knife. Like for this title…I used a alphabet stencil and traced out the letters for “Silly Faces” onto a scrap piece of card stock and then cut out the letters with an exacto knife. It takes a little longer but you end up with something just as nice as a die cut title in the end.


After I had my title cut out I attached it to a white tag and added some ribbon and stitching. For the first part of my title “You & All Your” I used some colored alphabet stickers and added them above my tag with some stitching as well.
