I also used the frame die cut from the Lawn Fawn #awesome Die Collection, the Spring Showers Die Collection, Hello Scripty Die and Cole's ABC's Die Collection. Lots and lots of amazing Lawn Fawn action going on!
For basically being such a simple layout in design this page and I had major creative differences and it took three tries to get it just how I wanted it. Truth be told, the finished page is close to my original sketch design that I initially wanted to do but I kept trying to not use the #awesome Die Collection since that isn't one of the "new" products that we are using for February Inspiration Week. But after two other failed layout tries, I said "to hell with it" and went ahead with my original plan. I should have saved myself the time and energy and just done that in the first place! ha!
The #awesome Die Collection frames are 2.5" square and perfect for Instagram type of photos! To make my frames a bit more substantial, I die cut 5 layers and glued them one on top of another for each frame creating a thicker more "chipboard style" frame. Of course the awesome Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine Paper Collection die cut frame is the top layer on each. I decided to keep the colors of the frames to the stripe pattern, blues and gray dot for consistency and I'm glad I did. I added in the rest of the colors elsewhere in the design.
I used the Hello Scripty Die and Cole's ABC's Die Collection to create my page title. I die cut them once from the Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine Paper Collection and then once from black cardstock. The black cardstock behind the letters helps make the title really pop!
I used the inside piece die cut from the #awesome Die Collection for my journaling. I simply die cut the rounded square, ran it through my printer and then placed it behidn the frame! Love that the paper has the sun design in the background which really compliments and coordinates with the page!
I used the same technique for the die cut sunshine from the Spring Showers Die Collection and used 5 layers to give it a more substantial look and feel. I added one of the Hello Sunshine Flair badges to the center and used some vellum die cut clouds to finish the embellishment. Some Freckled Fawn wood flags tucked behind the sunshine add a bit of fun and variety.
I love, love, love the large polka dot paper in the Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine Paper Collection but couldn't make it work for my page as it was so instead I used a 1" circle punch and punched out some of the dots and sprinkled them throughout the design for pops of color and to add to the "water" theme! I finished them off with some Hello Shine Sequins!
