Hello! Today I am over on the Elle’s Studio blog sharing my very first design team project. I am so excited to be spending the next year with you sharing how I document my family’s memories using the fabulous Elle’s Studio goodies!
For today’s project I wanted to focus on the adorable coordinating stamp set available this month, the All My Heart stamp set. I adored the script “Love You” sentiment and wanted to use it as a title on my layout.
Instead of just stamping on my layout I wanted to add a little dimension so I decided to create a cut file out of the stamp. To create the file I simply stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with black ink. Next, I took a photo of the sentiment and opened the jpg in Silhouette software. I traced the stamped image and cut it out normally on black card stock six times. I layered the cuts on top of each other to create dimension and adhered it to the center of my layout.
To create the interactive flaps on the layout I created a box in Silhouette then erased the top cut line. I cut the flaps out of the beautiful woodgrain paper from the Sunny Days collection and adhered it down to the 12×12 white base.
I used the tag die and Celebrate stamp to to make flipping up the boxes easier and a little more cute! Under each flap I used the Malia numbers to document my boys age and then typed a few of their favorites right now.
I added a photo of each of my boys and embellished the box with one of the cute wood veneer Love Ya circles from this months add-on.
To bring a little more color and interest to the front of they layout I stitched an acrylic star with yellow and green thread right above the title.
On the front of each flap I punched out a 1 inch circle from white card stock then used the black alpha stickers to place my boys first initial in the center. I added a little heart stamp in the same color of card stock that is backing the journaling on the inside of the flap.
I love the final spread! I love adding interactive projects into my memory keeping, (my boys love it too)! Thanks so much for stopping by today. Links to all the goodies I used are below. Have a beautiful day!
