Life Crafted with Marsha

Hey, CTK friends!  Marsha here with a Life Crafted layout using the gorgeous new October kits.  For my layout today, I used mainly the Scrapbooking Add-on kit, along with a few ephemera pieces and the stamp set from the Life Crafted Flourish kit.  

Here's a look at the spread:

The Add-on kit this month is FULL of the Crate Paper Marigold collection.  It is beautiful!  To begin the layout, I trimmed a patterned paper to 5x8.25" to fit as a full page in the album.  This gave me more space for adding lots of layering.  I chose several pieces from the Marigold ephemera pack (included in the Add-on kit) to create a large embellishment cluster.  I love that the ephemera includes vellum and cardstock pieces for a bit variety.   I also added a few ephemera die cuts from the Life Crafted kit to the edges of the cluster.  A gold bow puffy sticker and a few other puffy stickers from the kit finished off this page. 

Because the left side of the spread was a patterned background, I chose to use white cardstock as the base for the right page.  I trimmed it to 5x8.25" to fit as a full page.  I layered a patterned paper and some ephemera pieces behind my photo.  I loved the green floral die cut and chose to use it to frame the photo.  I used a gold puffy phrase sticker as the title for my layout, layering it over the edge of the photo.  The Marigold puffy stickers were perfect little embellishments for this page.  

I cut out a tag from a patterned paper and added it to the bottom of the page.  I handwrote my journaling on a label and adhered it, along with a vellum floral ephemera piece and puffy butterfly sticker, to complete the cluster.  I trimmed a small piece of the lace trim, included in the Add-on kit, and added it to the tag.  To finish off the spread, I added some stamping using the LC kit stamp and did a bit of machine stitching with black thread on several areas of the page.  

I love how this Life Crafted layout turned out using these amazing kits!
