This is Melissa here with you this morning and I'm sharing a layout I made with the Pocket Life kits from July & August! Those kits are packed with so many goodies and I still had a ton left from each one - I decided to use the leftover bits to create this layout.
First, I found a cut file and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the background page out.
I found a photo I wanted to use and printed out two square copies of it using my Canon Selphy printer. I picked out the pattern paper I wanted to use; I LOVED the 6x6 patterned papers that were included in the August kit that were dog themed and used all of those. I cut them down into smaller pieces and backed the hearts that were cut out on my white card stock.
I used small pieces of scotch tape to hold the small pieces of pattern paper down. I kept covering them all until every heart was "filled" with a pattern.
Next, I trimmed my photos down and layered them with some tags, stickers, and chipboard.
I wanted to use that "Summer" chipboard piece that was included in last month's kits and layered it on top of a vellum envelope and another tag. I stitched these down and put it in the lower right hand corner of my layout.
Lastly, I added other embellishments around my layout such as chipboard hearts, stickers, and glitter embellishments.
And here's the final result!
Thanks for stopping by!
