Father's Day with Ivy Lane

I have been very busy and pretty stressed with Spring Break and all my kids home and a little traveling thrown in there.  Two nights ago I was inspired by 3 challenges to make a page!  I love the stress relief I feel from creating!  A few minutes of creating and it puts everything right!

The layout I used was inspired by the Grand Diva's Creative Corner sketch challenge!  I obviously changed it up some! Ivy Lane and the Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment to create the layout. The colors from the color challenge on Creating With Paper and More inspired the paper choice!

The banners for the title was inspired by the Scrap Your Stash banner challenge and the Southern Girls Challenge.  I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to design and cut the banners and letters in the Cricut Craft Room.  I used the background and texture paper for the banners and cut the letters out of the banners and backed the banners with the Ivy Lane Purple cardstock.

I created the Day part of the title with the Cricut Craft Room by welding the letters together and then creating an oval that fit around but touching enough to look like it was intended to be there and then welded that!  I have grown to really love the Cricut Craft Room and the capability of changing and creating my own designs to suit my pages and cards!

As a final touch I used the retired Mocha Opaques in between each banner piece.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation as much as I enjoyed creating it!  To see other projects with Ivy Lane go here and to see more with Paper Fundamentals go here!
