Daddy's Girl - Layout

This is another one of those layouts that I do for my daughter. I will be posting two others the next few days. I wasn't sure how my daughter would feel about the title of this layout but when I showed it to her she smiled broadly and said "I love it Momma". At least I know the few scrapbook pages I have done of her father she will always have and appreciate those few and far between good times and good memories with him.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Elegant Edges Cartridge
Hannah Montana Cartridge
Basic Grey
Stampin Up Corner Punch
3/8" Grosgrain ribbon
3/4" Sheer Ribbon
Diamond Stickles
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Redline Tape

I found the title on Hannah Montana and just fell in love with it and knew I wanted to use it. I only had one picture of my daughter and her dad in this type of pose so I knew it would be the one I would use for the layout.

The large circle is from Elegant Edges. I cut the top layer and then turned the center that cut up since I used double sided paper and ended up with the red trim and then the patterned center. I think by doing it this way the photograph stood out even more.

I wanted to add the date somewhere and found this heart in the Hannah Montana cart as well so decided it would work good for adding the date of the photograph.

To adhere the ribbon I used my ATG gun but I knew the bows would be a little trickier so I used a little Redline Tape since that stuff is like the SuperGlue of the tape world. Those bows won't be coming off anytime soon for sure!

Since this was a layout kit I did for the swarm I did the cuts ahead of time and I also did the glitter before hand because I knew I would mess it up waiting for it to dry at the swarm.


  1. What a lovely LO. I'm sure your daughter will treasure it.

  2. This is a beautiful LO and a true treasure for your DD. It warms my heart to see pictures like these because it reminds me of my DH & DD.

  3. So beautiful Okie! You really have a talent for picking the right paper. That's where I get stuck and stuck and stuck! Picking the paper. I need you here to slap me upside the head telling me just Pick one for God Sake!

  4. I watched you put this together across the table in awe because I thought it was just a fabulously beautiful layout (I am sure you just thought I was crushing on you because I kept staring!! LOL) Who knew you could use your ATG tape on Ribbon???? Oh the things I have learned from watching the great Okie :)
