Scrapbook Layout - Be You! -
I hope you are doing well; i have been busy with a lot of new projects -coming soon to the blog-. However, one of the nerds at Scrapbook Nerd (Barb -the owner-) had the idea of playing layout tag, though i have never play this before, I enter my name to the long list.
Once i received the e-mail with the layout (I have to scraplift), my first thought was my daughter's recent pictures of her in her graduation outfits and lace.
For this layout I used the Funky Floral cut file from the Cut Shoppe to create this flower cut-out. I also cut some individual flowers and matching leaves. I stitched this piece of paper lace with the sewing machine through the middle of the cut-out, and chose to not glue the edges to the mat.
|The welded flowers in the cut-out remind me of the lace in my daughter's outfits.|
Since the layout i was scraplifting had 3 4x6in pictures, I wanted to scale the pictures down in size, so they fit within the lace cut-out. Thankfully, I took plenty of pictures of my daughter modelling her dresses, and a had a series that worked perfect on this layout.
|I used a larger picture in the middle, as i wanted to anchor the piece and show the real her.|
The layout had banners on both edges of the page, so I went ahead and added banners to the top of the page, along with some ephemera and cut-outs.
|I used a sewing machine to add the banners.|
For the bottom, i added the same banners and a cut out from the Wild Flowers cut file from Scrapbook Nerd. I also added a couple cut outs, and sequin to both corners of the layout.
|I wrote a large part of my journal on the back of the page,|
and a few lines in the bottom banner.
For the title I used wood pieces from Michael's summer collection. Here is the final layout:
|I love the softness of the page...|
I love this layout, it is soft just like the dresses she picked, but shows my daughter's true self at the same time.
I hope you like it, too
See you soon!
