Laura Rumble – The Bowling Brothers

Hi there, Laura here today with a 12×12 layout using the Star Border Cut File.

I’ve cut the file on white and kept the cut out stars as well as the 12×12.  I’ve backed the star openings with papers from Sticker Kitten’s Dinosaur collection. I’ll let you into a secret – the backs of my layouts are never neat when I’ve backed a cut file.  They go back to back in albums so no one will ever know.  The first few backing pieces are cut out fairly accurately but as the spaces get filled up I don’t worry about cutting the right shapes… a square/rectangle/chunk of paper is fine.

I added my photos to the bottom right and grounded them with a row of the white stars.

Embellishing was kept simple adding a few stickers that matched the papers and a sprinkling of enamel star stickers.  I added the date, initials and a title using alphabet tiles – the smaller ones are Jillibean Soup and the larger ones are Pretty Little Studio.  I left an awkward gap between the middle photo and the title.  I had planned to step the title along with the photos but it was reading as “the bow  ling bro  thers” instead of “the bowling brothers”.  I moved the alphas up so the title read properly and plugged the awkward gap with a couple of snippets of patterned paper.

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
