I don't know about y'all, but sometimes I can get lost when I try to start a layout. I try to come up with new arrangements but I seem to keep going back to doing the same old thing! That's where this sketch came in really handy for this layout!
I found a sketch on Citrus Twist Kits' blog and it inspired this layout. I loved the grouping of several small photos together with all the embellishments around it.
I started by pulling out little bits and embellishments from my stash that would work on this particular sketch. I used some paper doilies for the big circles in the background, and some little scalloped punched circles for the little ones. I layered those behind some polka dot paper, and some Canvas Corp burlap.
My base paper is from a Heidi Swapp paper pad that was so pretty I just had to pick it up. I found it at Tuesday Morning. They have some great prices there!
I used some pink tags behind my photos, as well, and I tied some black and white ribbon onto them.
The photos I used I printed in wallet size and in black and white. After I figured out what size I wanted them to be, I trimmed them down a little more and matted them in their places.
The biggest photo I framed with a glittery gold Heidi Swapp Memory Planner frame. These frames are made to fit in your planner's pocket pages, but I thought it looked perfect on this layout so I went with it!
The title for this page I created by using a stamp and stencil set from Heidi Swapp, as well. I brushed on the heart with some Spun Sugar Distress in and then stamped the sentiment over that.
I also added a few embellishments like the heart sticker and the paper bow I cut with my Cricut.
I know this layout turned out very girly, so I plan to replace my son's photos with some photos of a little girl. Im sure he will thank me for it later!
Maybe I can recreate this layout in a more boyish theme?
Anyway, I had a fun time creating this layout and photographing it with my toddler trying to get his hands on it as you can see...
So thanks for coming by to take a look!! I hope you enjoyed the layout and if you want to watch the process, I made a video!
