Dad is 60 by Marina Khong

Hi there fellow scrappers! Marina here! This is my first Scrappin Studio post and I’m working with the delightful Elmwood Park and Capture the Flag, Studio Calico’s July’s main kit and add-on kit. Both are simply adorably playful and fun ... they make me think of playgrounds and carnivals in the summer! And gosh those wood veneer tweety birds are to-die-for!

I'm going with a more classic theme with this post as I decided to scrap this photo taken with me dad and brother last December at dad’s 60th birthday. As you can see, at 60 (centre), he is still more fashionable than me and bro together!
Slightly rustic layout with a touch of cute with the wood veneer tweets. I added emphasis to the photo with some stenciling using distress ink (Tea Dye) and punchinella. (Lace ribbon, sentiment rub-on, cream prima bloom, ink, sticklers and liquid pearls not from kit)

I placed the tweety birds on a piece of paper that came with the graph stamp! *recycling*
Adorable mini envelope from Capture the Flag add-on kit. 

The toothpick flag stickers are so awesome!
The wonder of the SC kits are that they works in many ways, I usually scrap with monotones with max of 3 to 4 colors so it works for me as well! 

In addition to the gorgeous SC kits, I’m experimenting with my new Sizzix Eclips... I created the layout title and the 2 layered flowers using SC papers and the Decorate Your Life cartridge. Guess what, you can also get the Sizzix Eclips from Scrappin Studio here *wink*
Satmping with the graph texture mini stamp, then alphas cut using Sizzix Eclips. 

Flowers are cut using Sizzix Eclips, distressed and layered and decorated with buttons from Capture the Flag add-on kit. I sneaked in a Prima bloom as the last layer.
Check out these gorgeous kit here! And stay tuned for more scrappy inspiration from the SC team.
Thanks for dropping by :) Hope you like this and have a splendid Sunday!
