This spread was inspired by one red card that said "All about me." This card was part of the April Studio Calico add-on kit "Tobasco," which I had to have because of this card and some of the cute embellys! Since I could not figure out how I wanted to place the card, I decided to punch a 2" circle around the words and to layer it over an image. I then used the scraps from the punched card to keep the exact color red throughout the layout, contrasting it with blues (I have a lot of blue cards, since its my favorite color!)
I used the red scraps to make small flags and 1" circles. I stamped in black Stayz-on ink with some fun stamps from the new Simple Stories DIY stamp sets.
I also used some cute puffy asterisks, an Amanda Rose "hubbie" stamp, a Red "EEK" flair button from the April SC PL kit (which was perfect since it was both red and pretty much explained the emotion everyone at the table felt when I started playing with the crab legs, HAHA!), and red and blue alphas from Simple Stories and Thickers. All the cards I used were from my stash :)
