Handy Dude - Wood Veneer Die Cuts

I got to scrapbook this week and decided it was time to scrapbook the pictures of my son and father making a card carousel for me. It was only about 5 years ago. I chose Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie orange to match the drill and a BasicGrey blue to go with my dad's shirt in the photos. Of course it turned out looking very Chicago Bear-ish which was totally unintentionally.

I was really excited to get this page done because it meant I got to use the Wood Veneer Die Cuts I won from Studio Calico at the beginning of the year. I used Mr. Huey's Color Mist in Orchard to color the wood so it would match the drill in the pictures.

I added the title using the Transporting Perfect Alignment technique I posted about yesterday. I went font shopping on which is one of my favorite places to get new fonts. The headline font is Grobold, which I thought was just perfect for the page. I also got a few other great fonts and realized I really like the comic category.

The font for the journaling is Pea Our Best Bites by Kevin and Amanda Fonts for Peas.

Happy Crafting,
