Crate Paper’s Toy Box and Our Beautiful Boy


Crate Paper’s Toy Box Full Collection is now available at AC  SUPER fun collection.  The embellishments were my favorite part of this collection.  There’s just so many fun things to play with as you can see in the above layout of our beautiful boy, Raiden. 

Raiden is my little man of the house and he always has something to say that makes me think and warms my heart. He has the best perspective on life. People are always complimenting him on his good attitude, manners, and politeness. I think he takes after his daddy. He’s a very kind, caring, and beautiful boy. We are very proud of who he is now and who he will become.

On this 8-1/2-x-11-inch layout, I used my Silhouette Portrait to print-and-cut the embellishments and wordart on this page.  This time I wanted to use the rhinestone feature of the software to add a border template around my picture.  Instead of using rhinestones, I used embroidery thread in the template instead.  Another tip, I added one of the kit’s buttons to a real-life white button and tied a bow in some bakers twine for a fun little embellishment. The journaling above the picture was attached to a popsicle stick.  To do this, I scanned an actual popsicle stick into my computer and used it as a template in Photoshop Elements 11 to insert paper from the kit and the text shown.  Then I retrieved it in the Silhouette software and processed it as a print-and-cut that I adhered to the popsicle stick.  I love that you can make templates from real-life elements by scanning them.
