Hi Creative Friends!!! It’s Jennifer here today for new Main Kit Only layout featuring the stunning January 2022 kit which you can find right here.
I absolutely wanted to use the beautiful “Expectation” pattern paper for this layout, so I tore it in half to use only half that I glued on a white cardstock on the left. I added a piece of the “Dream” pattern paper underneath, making it protrude only a little bit to create a limit.
I then sewed with white DMC thread a few arc lines of the “Expectation” pattern paper to bring texture. I then coated the other part of my page with clear Gesso and then added shimmerz Inklingz Plum Crazy ink to the center forming a destructured circle.
As it’s the week of love, I added a photo of my husband and I in black and white so that it stands out well from this very colorful background that I stuck in the center after adding under a piece of purple patterned paper. And then we also needed hearts, of course, the symbol of love. So I made three hearts with the help of the Fancy Mixed Metal Dies that I used with the other half of the “Expectation” pattern paper.
I placed the hearts around the photo and sewed their centers to have hearts that lift and bring volume and movement. I used three small Wood Chipboard hearts that I glued to the center of the other paper hearts. I used the Puffy Alpha Stickers to add the words “Him” and “Her” above and below the photo and on the right I ingested Die Cuts “Be Amazing”, a heart and two trios of heart as well as the number 2 Puffy Alphabet Stickers.
I finished this layout with splashes of black ink to bring contrast. I hope this layout will inspire you today in one way or another. I really had fun making it. I love the play of texture with the seam and volume with the hearts. This is really the page I had in mind for this week place under the sign of love.
