Scrap That July Reveal

I am loving the weather in Chicago these last couple of weeks! No rain and low 80's is perfect for me. Most people wish it was a little warmer, but I think it is perfect. It has been hard to stay inside.

Even with the great weather I already finished two layouts for SCRAP THAT this week and it is only Tuesday. This month we were given the BG Porcelain collection to work with. I love the soft colors and designs of this collection. It's so pretty and perfect for these pictures of Frances.

This first LO I have had in mind for a while. Frances isn't a common name so I wanted to do a LO explaining to her why we chose that name.

Last night I was working on this LO and decided the tree needed a little something. So I decided I wanted to heat emboss the trunk. Well my scrapbook room is a mess and I haven't used my embossing stuff in probably over 3 years. So I went on a mission to find it. Oh and I have no lamp in the room anymore because I moved it into Frances's room Luckily I had a vague idea of where it was and found it pretty quickly. It was worth it. I love how the tree came out. I used a few layers of clear embossing powder, heated it and ran a toothpick though it while it was still wet to give the trunk some texture.

That's it for now. I have a few more LO's in the works that I will post later this week. Have a good one!


  1. Those are both so cute and that's such sweet journaling about her name! That tree on the second layout is adorable!

  2. Fantastic layouts, Sarah! I love that tree on the second one. And so many fun details on both layouts, you have a way with little details. Great job!!
