A “Good Eats” Story with Tracey Fox

Sometimes a story can come to life because of a new product sitting on your desk, and that’s what happened to Tracey Fox when she saw  the Good Eats Wood Veneer. We love what she documented with it—all of the food she ate on her wedding day!
Don’t you just love it when a product prompts you to scrapbook a story you might not have thought to tell otherwise? That’s what happened to me when I saw the Good Eats Wood Veneer. That fork, knife, and spoon and the “breakfast,” “lunch,” and “dinner” wood veneer pieces inspired me to document all the meals I ate on my wedding day back in 2009.

I knew I wanted to divide this layout into three sections: one for each meal of the day. So, I printed my photos small and laid them out in pairs so they staggered down the page. Next to each set of photos, I added journaling that I printed on clear label paper and cut into strips, and I added the Good Eats Wood Veneer pieces that best matched each story. I also added extra embellishments from the Noteworthy Epoxy Stickers and the Noteworthy Puffy Stickers.

To dress up the wood veneer fork, knife, and spoon, I masked their handles off with strips of washi tape, inked them with Versamark ink, and heat embossed them with silver glitter embossing powder. I love the touch of sparkle this added to my page—especially since it’s about a wedding story.
I used the “on the menu” phrase from the Right Now Stamp in order to list all the food that was served at our wedding. This is something I might never have thought to document in such detail in my scrapbooks if it hadn’t been for the great combination of Elle’s Studio products I used on this layout!

To bring some color and pattern into my page, I cut up scraps of patterned papers from the Noteworthy 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, along with some of the patterned tags from the September Kit, and I arranged them in an angular frame all the way around the page. I love how the red, pink, purple, and black and white papers I chose go with the colors in my photos.
It was especially fun to create the title for the page using bits from the September Kit, September Labels, and some Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers!
