PLS Feature Friday: Just Like the Fam 6x6 Paper

Friday, September 2, 2016

Happy Friday, y'all!  It's my turn, again, on the Pretty Little Studio blog.  Today, we're featuring 6x6 papers.  I used our brand new Here Comes the Sun: Up in the Air 6x6 Paper Pack and cut four prints into perfect, little, 3" squares for quilting over a 12x12 cardstock background and highlighting pics of my littlest eating his first popsicle.  Although, skipping the cutting-down part and quilting the 6x6 prints themselves would work beautifully as well.  Oh, and I couldn't resist calling attention to the fact that I've used what most would coin a "girl" collection with pics of my little man and just couldn't love it any more!
I started this page by cutting down my 6x6 prints as described above.  Before quilting, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  I replaced one of my patterned, paper squares with a "love you" Shine 4x6 Card, cut down to 3x3 and dressed up with a "LITTLE MOMENTS" die cut.
A clear paper was stitched over the bottom right corner's square to create a pocket for housing a happy mix of sequins, including Seaspray 4mm and Crystal 8mm Sequins from our just-released Summer Vibes Collection.  Don't you just love 'em?!  Another patterned paper square was replaced with the "remember" lined portion of another Shine 4x6 Card, which made it perfect for my journaling and reads, You so enjoyed your 1st Outshine bar, our favorite!  And you more than deserved it today, as we had your 15-mo. well-child checkup this am & found out you had an ear infection.  With you getting your molars, too, we had no idea!  Poor little guy!
The bottom left corner was dressed up with a Gold Metallic Label Tag, which I used to house my May 4, 2015, date, as well as a stapled "Summer is coming" Think Positive Sticker.  A couple of fruit die cuts, popped up with foam tape, work perfectly here, as Outshine bars are packed with nothing but pureed fruit and/or/sometimes veggies.  Another phrase sticker drives us up the left side of the grid...
to a Salt Lake Clear Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, and embellished with a number of die cuts from the Here Comes the Sun and Hello Heather Here + There collections.
Across nearly the entire top of the design and flush with the far right corner, I stitched a "love" Clear Word Art.  It was dressed up with a "Love love love it!" Think Positive Sticker and grounded with a Cameo-cut, from teal cardstock, "popsicles"...
which leads into the "JUST LIKE THE fam" title.  The title itself was created from Gold Metallic A to Z Die Cuts, Noir ABC Stickers, and a Cameo-cut, black, cardstock "fam".
My photos were all matted with white cardstock and popped up, in their respective positions and replacing a few more of those 6x6 paper prints, with foam tape.  One of the quartet was topped with a word bubble die cut, adhered with stacked foam tape...
and the center of all four was embellished with half a Cambridge 4" Doily, topped with a Paradise Phrase Strip, "everyday" die cut, and "little angel" flair button.  A trio of star die cuts, scattered about the design and popped up with foam tape, complete the look.
Thanks so much for popping in!  I hope you all have a truly fabulous weekend!  Hugs!
