Tree House of Dreams and Overzealous | Shimelle Never Grow Up | Niki Rowland
Hey everyone, this is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) with two layouts using the newest Shimelle Never Grow Up collection. This collection was perfect for documenting my crazy children who are spending a lot of time outside at the moment.
I started off by making a double layout – something I don’t do all that often, but the Treehouse Dreams paper was MADE for double layouts of course, so it would have been rude not to! I had two sheets of this paper so I matched them up to create the background and then I added lots of photos of our new treehouse and my boy using the monkey bars.
I used journaling cards, fussy cut elements and the library cards to add layers to my photos. I fussy cut ‘life is a daring adventure’ for my sub title. I also used a few of the Let’s Go Phrase Thickers too.
I finished off with twine, gold thread and a title using Amy Tangerine Thickers. I also added buttons from the Mini Mixed Embellishments pack and some cute puffy stickers – that line of ants is so adorable!
For my second layout today, I’ve used that fabulous rainbow paper: Enchanted Sky. I cut it down and then cut it into a starburst design and distressed all the edges.
I’ve used two photos of my girly and journalled about her lovely sunny personality. From the remaining piece of paper I fussy cut some of the elements and layered them over the top of the same elements on the starburst design.
I loved that foam phrase Thickers sticker that says ‘you brighten up my rainy days’ a sentiment that went beautifully with my layout. I added loads of sequins to the background to make it sparkle.
Around the photos I added a layer of the Speciality Silver Foil acetate, and embellishment clusters on each side of the photos. I’ve used multiple pieces from the Floral Ephemera and added wooden buttons, I also added gold thread twiddles.
I finished off with a title using Amy Tangerine Thickers and a few acrylic perspextives.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these two layouts using Shimelle Never Grow up…I have really enjoyed making them!
