Scrapbook Layout - Most Favorite Smiles -
My goal for the next few weeks is to put a dent on my stash, so i can make space for all the new goodies that are coming my way. One of my fave collections so far this year has been Paige Evans' Pink Paislee Fancy Free, and i have to use what i was able to get my hands on. Since, I am always finding ways to document multiple pictures in a layout (it is not my favorite way, I rather focus on a single picture), I think that i found a solution by shrinking the pictures and creating collages of them. Here is a layout I created with some of my favorite pictures of my kids a few years back...
|I used 2x2.5in photos to create this photo strip.|
For this project I am using all Fancy Free collection to back and layer the picture as well as the cut file (May Mash-up) from the Cut Shoppe. I added some dimension to the cut-out by backing some of the spaces with vellum, while others are backed up with a layer of foam between the paper and the cut-out.
|i love that shadow the foam dots create behind the cut-out|
I attached the figure to one of the papers from Simple Stories Heart collection, and added ephemera clusters around the figure and pictures. For the title, i used stickers from the Fancy Free collection and Thickers to complete the word "smiles'.
To complete the project, a hand stitched frame was created in two same-toned embroidery floss around the page. After adding the date, and the journal lines along the figure, the layout was complete. Here is the final layout:
I love this layout, it is simple, delicate and features my babies...
As always let me know if you have any questions about this or any of my layouts.
