Scrapbook Layout - Love This Life -
we are almost done with our complete spring/house cleaning; so there is lot of time to scrapbook and document memories... There are quite a large amount of pictures sitting in my file that are worthy of a beautiful layout... So i will be busy for the next few nights and days...
|This was the starting point for the layout
This layout started with a different idea in mind, and transformed as it progressed. At first I used a free cut-file from www. lovepapercrafts.com to form the title. I wanted a bold and large title so I used 3/4 of the page when sending it to the Silhouette Cameo to be perforated... I then used 3 different shades of blue thread to stitch each word respectively.
|A light coat of white color shine to the inside of the letters gives them a bit of spark.
Here is when I change my design, and opted to cut out the letters and attached them to a blue ombre paper. Once i had place the title, I went ahead and pull a picture of my baby chewing on his blue disk. I layered lots of paper in white, blue and green patterns to add some lift and create a frame for the picture.
|Most of the ephemera was pieces from Heidi Swapp's MInc collections that
were foiled with blue and teal foil.
A few tags and stickers added interest to the piece. I tied in the stitching theme with a little bundles of thread at the corners of the picture. Since the page needed some balance, I added a few banners and a simple tag with to the top left corner of the layout.
|The banners are made up from the backing pieces of the journaling label
used in this layout
I added sequins in different shades of white, teal and blue to complete the page.
I hope you like it as much as I do... See you soon!!
