Berry Cute Designs: Little Girl Baker

I have a project share with a file from Berry Cute Designs to submit another sample for their Design Team Call. I was looking through the files when this cute Little Girl Baker from the Kitchen Files caught my eye. I knew it would be perfect for the Thanksgiving pictures from last year. I haven't even scrapped 2012 yet and here I am making a scrapbook page for 2013. LOL My stepdaughter, Sarah, is 7 and loves to help out in the kitchen. This year I let her help me make a pumpkin pie and a chocolate brownie pie to take with us to my Aunt's house for Thanksgiving dinner.

My scrapbook page is 12x12 and will hold 8 (2x3) pictures and my journaling, which I will do on the computer. I only used the girl from the set. It also includes cookies, a rolling pin, and pot holders. I cut the little girl at about 6 inches and inked all the edges before assembly. The title and the little girl are attached to the layout with foam dots for dimension.

I created my own title "baking pies" using the font BaaBookHmkBold. I grouped the words together and then sized them so the word "baking" is about 3.5 inches. I ungrouped them and added the offset. Confession: As I was inking the letters, I lost one of the dots for the "i" so I used some clear bling.

I attached the chef hat with foam dots to add dimension. Since I didn't have any silver paper, I colored the mixing bowl with a silver Sharpie marker before I removed it from the mat. As a finishing touch, I added Glossy Accents to the facial features and the shoes. I also added a few pieces of clear bling to the bottom left corner to go with the bling used in the title. Oh, and the hair bows--the ones that came in the file were impossibly tiny. I used some twine from my stash and just tied them in a knot around the ponytails.

Paper: Core'dinations
Distress Inks: Spun Sugar, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, Antique Linen, Black Soot
