Guest Designer Week 44: Crafting with Cristina Day 1

                                             ***AND HAPPY LABOR DAY*****
It's Cristina here from Crafting with Cristina and welcome to my Peachy keen Stamps Guest Designer week. I am so excited to share some fun peachy projects with you this week.

For Today's project I created a layout, because I'm very very behind on my scrapbook pages (aren't we all??)

The Whole Layout
I decided to create an Easter scrapbook page. Since I only have 1 picture of my daughter with the Easter bunny this year I opted to create a layout centered around the 5x7 print. I am a steadfast believer of making simple quick yet adorable layouts and this project came together in a total of 45 Mins. I don't have much time to craft, so I have to monopolize on what time I do have. :)

For this project I used the PK-44 Cute and Cuddly Faces 1 1/8” Stamp Set along with Lettering Delights Peep SVG Set (for the adorable bunny and hop hop hop title)

I didn't have any “seasonal” Paper so I used what I had on hand an older DCWV All about Girls pattern paper stack because of the fun assortment of colors.

All of the hearts were hand cut using the old fashioned fold-a-paper-in-half-and-cut-half a-heart technique using scissors, I used my Sakura white Gelly roll pen and some Glitter Glue to dress them up a bit

Hand-cut Hearts
The Picture from the Mall orginally came with a horrible ugly border that I couldn't match to anything so the easiest thing for me to do, was just cut it off, and create my own photo mats, which the largest is 5x7 (kraft)

It's pretty simple to see what I did here. I made sure to add entirely too much doodling, I always get carried away once I start... :-P
