Hello Lovelies, today is a bonus layout and process video for you as I am participating in Sara Scraps’ YouTube Hop, Learning Is An Adventure! I hope you will follow along with the other ladies who are participating in this Hop over on YouTube today and have fun! You can see my video here.
I still had the die cut paper from Paige Evans Whimsical collection, so today was all about using that paper and adding some fun embellishments from my stash! My photo is from Natalie’s first day of 4th grade, so this layout will go in her personal album.
I backed the die cut paper with a pink patterned paper from Paige Evans Truly Grateful collection, and lifted up the flowers and leaves and butterflies so that would show through. The centers of these flowers make just the most fun places for embellishments, so I just brought out everything I had and started having fun! Anything that was pink, mint, yellow, or coral was fair game.
I find it so incredibly satisfying to use up embellishments like this, and it definitely adds so much interest to the page. I have used chipboard from Ali Edwards, flair from Dear Lizzy, wood buttons and floral die cuts from Truly Grateful, and acrylic star + butterfly from Dear Lizzy as well.
My title is the 4 from Felicity Jane and the -th grade layered on top of a die cut journal spot from Truly Grateful. I added my journaling once everything was in place by writing in a curve to follow the embellishments around the page. How fun!
I just love seeing the back paper peaking through! As final touch I stamped my date and called this one done.
Thanks so much for joining me today! If you’d like to learn more about my processes for our kids’ albums, I invite you into the classroom. In My Pocket Kids Album Edition opens this week and is already available for pre-order right here: In My Pocket Kids Album Edition.
