This week's layout began centered around the adorable MME Lime Twist Journaling Tag. I loved the number list style journaling and it made the perfect canvas to add tidbits about my youngest son at 7 months old. A large photo to showcase the milestone and 3 small 2x2" supporting photos along with bright colorful patterned papers and die cuts give a fun feel to this bright page.
I grouped Kerri's die cuts together on my page to make a big impact, starting with (of course) the die cut title. Kerri's titles are one of those things that just make me happy, ya know? I love how they work for almost anything and aren't so theme specific that you use them once and can never use them again. This particular phrase would make a gorgeous card sentiment as well. hmmm.... me thinks I need to make a card with this ASAP!
Here's a list of the digi die cut kits I used (and which design I used from each):
- This & That: Spring [Just Shapes]: kite (I love that it comes with all the elements to put together a kite (all 4 pieces, a solid backign piece, the "t" shaped divider to layer on top and even the kite string bows!)
- This & That Family [Just Shapes]: the title
- Borderlines #1: scalloped border cut from orange cardstock
I also stamped some clouds using some of my favorite stamps from a Studio Calicio kit a few months back (Candy Shoppe). I love, love, love that Studio Calico designs these exclusive stamps for their kits that coordinate with some of the Fiskars Punches. It's a bummer, though, when they aren't available anymore (like these). However, Hero Arts and Studio Calico have teamed up to create some fabulous stamp sets and I can't wait to get my hand on THIS one. New cloud stamps for my Fiskars punches. Happiness!
Here's that My Mind's Eye journaling tag that started this whole layout. LOVE this tag. It comes in the primary colors like you see below and HERE in the 2Peas store. And it also comes in a more "girlie" version/colors HERE.
I added a sticker sub-title right on top of the photo. I love adding elements on top of a really large photo. I think it helps tie the whole design together.
I didn't bother cutting the product tag off the bottom of the journaling die cut. I simply covered it up with an additional sticker and an October Afternoon Tin Pin.
I changed the smaller supporting photos to black/white and resized them to 2x2 before printing and cutting them into a little photo border for my page. Additional stickers grouped together finish the page.
