Scrapmingle: Superhero with Process Video

It's Wednesday which means it's time for another Scrapmingle: Where new meets Old layout in my Youtube series. This is #7 and we're still working with the October Afternoon Treasure Map collection. I'm going to try and get one more layout done from the Treasure Map collection and then we'll see what's next.

I've had this quote written down in my planner for a long time waiting to create a layout with it. I stumbled upon this picture of my kiddos on one of the last days of their summer kids camp job and thought it was perfect.  I found this sketch from the Boys Rule Scrapbook blog and decided to flip and turn it for my starting point.

Here's a look at the process

Supplies Used
Crate Paper paper pad, Journey Cork stickers
Evalicious Camera puffy stickers

Disney Warm Hugs with Process Video

Welcome back to another Disney layout. This months theme at My Scraps and More is Summertime so I couldn't think of a better collection than Simple Stories Summer Vibes to start with. (40% off with code CLEARITOUT40)

I had the 6x6 pad and decided to do some cuts from the new Artistry cartridge for my title and embellishments. I used a ton of the SS Summer Vibes collection, from the washi tape, sticker sheet, bradz, and ephemera pack.

Here's a look at my process
