Good morning everyone!! How are you doing?? I have been crazy busy lately and haven't been able to scrap much and its made me so sad. Now I have a few sick little ones and I feel like I'm getting it too, soar throat and all, ugh. But something beautiful showed up on my door step this weekend and oh I couldn't resist playing with it, feeling good or not! lol
So this is one of the pretties and I jumped in and made this layout of my crazy cute little girl.
I started with the photo this time, I usually start with a piece of paper or something, but not this time. I knew this kit would be perfect for this picture, so I grabbed my pic and started digging threw my kits. I started out with a piece of American Crafts white cardstock from the cardstock kit for my background and a few cut files cut from the same cardstock. I backed my picture with white paper as well, then grabbed the omber wood grain to pink paper from the 6x6 paper pad in the embellishment kit.Then I grabbed the 12x12 sheet by Maggie Holmes-Bright from the Shine collection, and theres a lot of that collection threw out this kit!! This paper was from my main kit.
I cut the cut apart sheet apart and used the back of one of the cards to layer behind my photo and added a circle of it down to the bottom right to start a little cluster there. Then I grabbed one of the beautiful Project life cards created by Kim Watson and used it as a layer behind my photo as well.
I grabbed another piece from the Maggie Holmes cut apart sheet, the pretty little floral, I cut it in half and placed a piece above my photo and then another layered down in my cluster to the bottom right. I added a geometric cut file into the cluster and repeated some of the other pieces I use around my photo too.
I grabber some of the Heidi Swapp Note Pades and used them around the photo cluster and down at the bottom. Oh And I grabbed that pretty washi tape from the embellishment kit by Studio Calico, Seven papers from the Goldie collection. I love this washi!! The cute little saying that are repeated on some of them are sooo stinking cute! And the patterns are great too!
I grabbed some thickers from my stash from past kits, those beautiful gold ones are from Octobers main kit and I love these letters!! They are Dear Lizzy thickers called Desk top and the other pretty blue sparkly alphas are from Octobers Project life kit, they are Heidi Swapp, make pretty stuff glitter stickers.
I didnt have to do this, there were plenty of alphas in this kit but I figured I would add the little blue in there and I'm just in love with those other thickers!! lol The other cute little round stickers are by Studio Calico, Elliot, cute little black and white alpha stickers. I liked the mix of the fonts. I added some stitching before I adheared everything down, added a few thread balls to the clusters and around, than grabbed those cute little Heidi Swapp Confetti rub ons and added some of those scattered around the layout and grabbed my Heidi Swapp color shine, Gold Lame, this came in Novembers color kit, I splattered some around the layout and thought I was done. I looked at it and thought it needed a bit more so I looked threw my papers and decided I liked the way that the Studio Calico Goldie 012 looked great behind the layout, it added just what I wanted. And that was the end of it for me.
