LIFE CRAFTED with Nathalie

Hello there!
Nathalie with you today to share a new Life Crafted layout.   This month's THE BEST PARTS kit is probably one that i am enjoying so much, and will be coming back to.  You might wonder how i will be able to return to it, well the answer is: Digital Files and Stamps.

The inspiration for this page was the matching PL card and tag (cut apart elements).  I love the colors and the watercolor feel of the page.  So, using Photoshop, i enlarged them to fit the  page of a Life Crafted album.  I chose to add my story to the bottom half of the PL card, and i wrote ( made mistakes writing, too!) and printed it on white cardstock.

Once printed, i used the empty top space to add my sentiment using This is Life: Good Times stamp and TRUE LIFE 6x8 stamp set with black ink.   The little branches were added to match the look of the tag.

Using Photoshop, i enlarged the tag to fit into a page for the Life Crafted album.  Once i erased the circle from the top of the card, i went ahead and added the "Beautiful" digital ephemera die cut.  I printed this on vellum making sure to leave about half an inch on the left of the print, so i can create the flap for the spread.

My selfie was enlarged to fit to the page, and all i added was one of the Digital tag at the bottom of the picture along with a puffy heart. 

I love how this turned out!  Having the chance to use digital files allows me to size everything to fit the page, and add lots of story content.  Remember to check this month's Digital files.  You will extend the life of your kit and create personalized pages every time!
