Up Close and Personal with Jenny!!

Hey everyone! Jenny here with a few little tidbits about one of the layouts I created with the September TSR kit!

It's back-to-school time around here. My youngest just started Kindergarten (and mama did NOT do well with that!), and my oldest just started 3rd grade. When I saw the colors of the American Crafts "Amy Tangerine" line, I just knew I had to use it for these recently snapped pictures of my son's first day of school!

When I saw the stamp add-on, I definitely knew I was going to scrap these pictures! This stamp is so adorable, and so perfect for those back-to-school pages. I simply added a punched scalloped circle with one of the included stickers on top and outlined them both with a brown pen:

And how lovely are these fabric letter stickers?! I love these and want a pack in every color. hehehe

Lastly, I did a little "dissection" with one of the dimensional stickers in my kit. It originally said "hello friend," but I cut off the "friend" part to where it only said "hello" and added it to the beginning of my title:

If your embellishments aren't working for you, don't be afraid to change them into something that works! Sometimes, all it takes is a little snip with the scissors. ;)

Thanks for are going to LOOOOOVE the new lines and all of the extra embellishments in September's kit!

  5. Jenny, Jenny! Your work amazes and inspires me.

  6. Love your work Jenny! Thanks for the reminder that we can alter our embellishments, I forget to do things as simple as that! Those fabric letters are neat!
