Hello friends! How is the weather lately in your neck of the woods? Here in Texas, we have had some beautiful spring weather, but it has already started to get really really hot. We have tried to get as much outside time as we can. We are introducing our youngest to bubbles, wagon rides, and sidewalk chalk. I made a layout featuring her hoarding the sidewalk chalk. It was just so cute. She was trying to hold them all, but when she’d pick up one more, another one would fall out of her hands. Ha!
I was challenged to use layers and fussy cutting on this layout… I love both of these techniques, so I was more than happy to! I will be using the April 2018 Main kit, Cardstock kit, Embellishment kit, Project Life kit, and Color kit.
I fussy cut a bunch of the flowers from the Dear Lizzy floral paper. (I still have a ton left for future projects!) My tip for you is to get a pair of sharp, small scissors.
I layered pattern paper and 2 cardstock colors for my background, I used some of the exclusive Project Life cards for layers behind my photo, and I layered my embellishments by using both flat adhesive (glue) and foam squares.
I thought that rainbow Dear Lizzy paper was perfect for this layout. To continue the rainbow theme, I used different colors of Distress Oxide inks (several from past color kits). I have been putting a lot of these small circles on my layouts recently. I use some sponge ink daubers, and I love how it looks! A couple of the sheets of Shimelle mini alpha stickers are rainbow also, which were perfect!
I really love how my layout turned out. I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!
