Elle’s Studio-You Call Him Dad

Hello again friends Candace here is share a layout using a combination of products from the April kit and the newly released Live Laugh Love collection.  For today’s spread I started with the acrylic Dad piece, this is what drove my story.  I considered what stories I might want to tell about my husband and his role as a dad.

The base of my layout is white 8.5x 11 card stock.  I added my journaling to the left side of the spread and paired it with a full size picture of my husband and all our little guys.  I wanted to add a few pops of color to contrast the black and white photo.  I used the light green 12×12 paper from the LLL collection to separate the photo from my journaling.

For my mixed title work I combined the Dad acrylic with the black puffy alphabet stickers.  I like the contrast of block alpha & script.  To add a little more color to the layout I added some yellow stamping using the dot stamp from the Live Laugh Love stamp set to the top and bottom of my journaling.

For my final embellishments I added a label to the bottom of the spread to act as a home for my journaling date and the “thankful for this” puffy sentiment.  I also placed a few of the wood veneer hearts and puffy hearts to balance color across my spread.

Such a fun and meaningful spread to put together!  These are the stories that are important to capture!

On your next spread give these tips a try:

  1. Combine different types of letters in your title.
  2. Use products from your stash to spark a meaningful story.
  3. Pair a few different colors with a black and white photo to make it pop!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a beautiful day & go tell some stories!

Candace
