Life Crafted with Marsha
Hey friends! Marsha here again today, and I'm excited to be sharing a spread in my Life Crafted Album. I used this month's Life Crafted "Make It a Venti" kit and the Life Crafted Stamp Add-on to create this layout. I just love the colors and designs in this kit! I also love that even though it is coffee themed, this kit can be used for lots of other types of documenting.
To begin the layout, I chose one of this month's exclusive cut files, "Retro Heart." The best part about using this cut file is it's already sized to fit perfectly in the Life Crafted album! I resized one of the traveler's notebook digital papers using my Silhouette Studio software. By doing this, I was able to cut the entire file using patterned paper. I then layered the cut file over a white cardstock base.
For my journaling, I chose one of the labels from the Make It a Venti Cut Aparts. I layered the label over an ephemera piece from this month's kit. The tiny tile alphabet stickers were perfect for adding the date. To finish off this side of the layout, I added a chipboard heart sticker from last month's Life Crafted "Life Chapters" Kit.
For the other side of the layout, I printed another digital TN paper and sized it to fit in the album. I layered a piece of white cardstock down the center of the paper, so that the heart pattern was peeking out on both sides. Next, I trimmed a few of the kit papers to layer behind this cute photo of my niece, and used some of the ephemera pieces from this month's kit to embellish this area. I hand cut a heart using the woodgrain paper and added it to the cluster. Using a border punch from my stash and the pink patterned paper from the kit, I cut a scalloped border piece and tucked it behind the photo. I saved another scalloped piece to add to the bottom of the page. I love how this mimics the scallop from the heart cut file!
For my title, I chose the ephemera "THIS" die cut and added some of the puffy alphabet stickers from the kit.
To finish off the spread, I added some machine stitching to a few areas of the layout, and I used the Life Crafted Stamp Add-on to stamp a couple of sentiments around the page.
Thank you for stopping by today. I can't wait to see what you create using this month's Life Crafted "Make It a Venti" kit!
