I Don't Think So! | Simple Stories Say Cheese Magic

Monday 17 June 2024


Well aren’t we being spoiled with all the new Say Cheese collections! For this layout I have used the Say Cheese Magic collection.

I had a photo of me with Mrs Incredible…now all mums are superheroes and I’m a mum, so I fully identify with Mrs Incredible! I decided it would be fun to re-create the Incredibles logo in Say Cheese papers! I started by printing a picture of the logo onto letter paper, and then I used this as a template to draw around and create the elements from different patterned papers. I added a sheet of Color Vibe paper in Tomato for the red outline, then used the black Say Cheese Magic paper for the middle, and a yellow gingham for the ‘i’ from the 6x8 Paper Pad.

Once the logo was assembled, I added hand stitching in coordinating colours around the outlines. I added a ‘glow’ of red ink behind where the logo would sit on my layout and then stuck it in place, raised up on foam pads! I love how it turned out!

I then added my photo and picked out embellishments in reds, yellows and blacks. Because the logo was so big I wanted to keep my embellishments fairly minimal so I just created two small clusters: one next to the photo and the other at the bottom left corner. I used a mixture of Chipboard Stickers, Bits & Pieces and Foam Stickers.

To create my title I used an Elastigirl quote from the movie: ‘leave the saving of the world to men?’ ‘I don’t think so’. I made this by printing the first part of the quote in a typewriter font just on my normal printer. The second part I made with the alpha stickers from the Say Cheese Magic Sticker Book, which I stuck onto strips, then cut into words. I could then position them easily and also raise them up on foam pads.

I finished off with Decorative Brads, and a few splatters of black paint. I also wrote my journaling around the edge of the logo.

This was such a fun layout to make!

Happy scrapping
