Fun Times This Way – 2018
First up is the layout above ‘Fun times this way’ and documents places where I stayed away during the year of 2018.
The time line border strip from the 4 x 6 Journaling Cards paper and was the inspiration behind the layout. I trimmed down the gorgeous Bon Voyage paper, distressed the edges and stuck it at an angle on Bazzill Basics kraft cardstock. Then I mounted little photos on foam pads on top of 1 3/4″ squares of patterned paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad. Each one is connected with twine from my stash to the time line which I raised up on foam pads.
Each of the little photos is embellished with either chipboard pieces, die-cut ephemera pieces, stickers, ordie-cut frames and tags. The number thickers are from the Shimelle collection ‘Sparkle City’.
Flower Fest 2019
My second layout focuses on the floral elements in the collection with a page about helping my college (I’m a floristry student) put together some floral displays at a local flower festival. It was such a cold, windy and rainy June day, the only sunshine was in the form of sunflowers!
I added a border sticker across the page and mounted the photos on the b-side of the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper. The florals came from the sticker sheet and the two chipboard packs; chipboard accents and chipboard phrases. I popped up the edges of the stickers with foam pads, this makes them more dimensional.
The frame is from the sticker sheet, I just raised it off my photo with foam pads. The puffy letter stickers are from the Dear Lizzy ‘It’s All Good’ collection. I have to say that they don’t stick very well, so I used some liquid glue to adhere them.
The fab tag is from the Die-cut Frames & Tags pack and the twine is from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by, see you next month!
