Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Do you have special photos that are sitting and waiting to be scrapbooked? I certainly do! Every season brings me more special memories to record. For today’s project, I am participating in the April Scrapbook Sunday blog hop. Many other crafters and I have linked our blog posts together to enable readers to “hop” from one project to another. Most of our projects will feature the same layout design as well, in hopes of giving lots of ideas for you to craft.

All Good Things Come to an End
The 2018 Occasions Catalog is chock full of fantastic products, some with a wonderful discount. Magical Day Bundle and Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle are two of my favorite retiring bundles. So glad I got the 10% bundle price when I bought them!
I love this photo of my oldest son, Trip. He was always one to give Mommy a big camera smile and I’m thankful to have captured this one here. I remember his baby smell too… okay I’m back to reality. I did not really design the layout this month, I asked Trip what he’d like to see on the page. No surprise to hear “Unicorns!”, since I have been crafting with unicorns lately. And nice puffy clouds. I knew at once which products to turn to.
At the end of the video tutorial, Trip helps to arrange the page, be sure not to miss the video!
Pastel Unicorns and Puffy Clouds
To achieve the large clouds, I cut strips of white card stock to pair with the cloud edgelit dies in the Rainbow Builder Framelits dies. I curved around the edges to make it look cloud-like and they worked wonderfully to take up a good amount of space in the page. Trip wanted puffy clouds, so I also used the cloud die from the same set to die cut from white felt. This was great to create a stacked cloud effect, where he can feel the texture with his fingertips. The unicorns were the most fun to create. Basic stamping was all they need, with a touch of shading from a coordinating Stampin Blends marker. To give a background atmosphere, I “flicked” the alcohol markers around the page. It’s also demonstrated in the video.
