Design by Numbers - Using #3

The Best Memory - Designed by Debbie Budge

This month's Design by Numbers Challenge is to use only templates with a #3 on them! You can design a layout, card or project using any #3 from any DT set you have...or borrow from your friends or family! Remember, you can use any of the photos, mini photos or photo mats, or any of the strips...the number doesn't matter on those. 

I had these beautiful pictures of my daughter, Rachel, that I wanted to scrapbook...and I'm so glad I did! I used My Mind's Eye Nostalgia paper and the following templates: Sunnybrook Lane 3a3b, Abbie Road 3a3b, Floral 3, Sweetheart 3, Tiny Floral 3T, Tiny Sweetheart 3T, Tiny Wildflower 3T, Journey 3, Tiny Shapes 3T, Tiny Brackets 3T, Tags 3, and Tiny Tags 3T. I used two punch-outs from the paper kit for the title and misc buttons, brads and flowers to add a little extra touch.

I layered the Floral 3 and Sweetheart 3 to make an adorable flower accessory and I used the Tiny Shape 3T as the middle. I tucked a little Tiny Bracket 3T below it and then finished off with the layered Tag 3 and Tiny Tag 3T.

On this page I used the tiny sizes of the same flower templates used on the other page...Tiny Sweetheart 3T and Tiny Floral 3T. I love how that balanced the two side of the complete layout. I used Tiny Wildflower 3T as to give the feeling of a leaf. Then I took the Journey 3 suitcase template and turned it into a camera by trimming off the two little feet and adding the Tiny Shape 3T circle to the middle. So easy and so cute! It was a perfect embellishment for these pictures because Rachel just held a camera and snapped pictures of herself.
