Today I am sharing a fun layout I created with Pink Paislee Hey Kid. This collection is so fun and is perfect for capturing childhood.
I have a bunch of pictures of my little guy when he was very sick and had a feeding tube. I wanted to tell a story of happiness and hope. At the time it was hard, really hard. But I can’t tell you how often he was still able to smile. That smile is what got us through a lot of hard days.
I am so blessed.
The background has a few die cuts in it so I layered coordinating papers from the collection to show through. On one circle die cut, in the lower right corner, I made a little pocket of wood veneers and buttons.
I made the frame from chipboard then covered it with red card stock and washi tape. I love using frames. I love using frames even more when they bring attention to an area but they do not frame a picture.
I embellished with die cuts from the ephemera pack and brads from my stash. Speaking of stashes I just love little mustaches! I finished it off with some stitching on various spots around the page.
Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to smile!
Today’s spotlight is on the beautiful Solstice collection by Pink Paislee. The colors is this collection are just beautiful! And there are anchors! I am a little obsessed with anchors and all things nautical. I don’t have a boat, I don’t go boating, and I don’t particularly love being in open water…but I love all things nautical!
First up the layout. I used various papers from the 12×12 and 6×6 pads to add some layers around a photo of one of my little guys at the lake. He just has the cutest face! I used various letters from my thickers stash to create a title that would surround the photo. For my embellishment clusters I used some of the puffy stickers from the collection, washi tape from my stash and a little wood chip. To finish off the layout I flicked some white paint across the page.
Now for the cards…
Two very simple cards. I challenged my self to only spend 15 min on each card. That may seem like a lot of time but I am a bit of an indecisive crafter!
Thanks for stoping by!
