So. Many. Embellishments. Am I right? Let me tell you how I got this layout done.
I started off by choosing my photo and then using the Crate Paper Willow Lane pink patterned paper as the main focus in the center of my page. I didn’t measure anything, I just never do, I simply cut so that it would be a very large square at the center of my white cardstock base.
I added a little texture to it by lifting the edges with my fingernails and also adding some “peek-a-boo” tears on all four sides. I loved the pop of color from the underside!
Then all of the embellishing fun began! Since I had such a large piece of cardstock in the center, I wanted to create a look that seemed as if the embellishments were tucked under and coming out of the peachy pink paper.
I layered so many textured and pieces from a mix of the kits. I used the chipboard stickers, the ephemera pieces, and the cardstock stickers, (all Amy Tan!) and finally some black splatters to bring it all together.
The final thing I added was the journaling piece from the Shine On ephemera pack under my photo and three of the little flowers from the chipboard sticker sheet. I thought this to be the perfect touch to this layout as it matched so well with the photo of my sweet family and myself this past Thanksgiving.
This was all I did to create this fun layout that gave me such great use of the Shine On pieces. I hope you have enjoyed this bit of scrappy inspiration today, and I invite you all to take some time from your busy day to get crafty with your September kits. Have a lovely end to your week scrappy friends! Xo
