Hello Crate Paper friends!! Lorilei here today sharing a layout I made using the lovely Designer Destination Project Pad of Maggie Holmes Heritage collection found at Joanns!! I love how these project pads are put together; you get a lovely assortment of patterns, solid colour papers and glitter paper, plus stickers and cut-apart sheets! They have so much in them!
I was inspired by the sentiments paper for my layout. I fussy cut the sentiment I wanted “a piece of our history” for my layout and then decided to mix some paint to match the colour of that piece. I added some simple paint swipes with a dry brush and left my background to dry.
Next, I focused on my photo. I chose the solid pink paper from the project pad and two pattern papers. I also added two papers from the 6×8 Heritage Paper Pad and cut them all into layers for my photo. I love that you can see so many patterns and colours peeking out behind the focal area! It is a great way to incorporate papers without committing to lots of pattern!
I used a 3×4 card and a tag from the cut-apart sheet to add beside my photo for interest and to balance the colourful photo. This photo is one of my favourites of my grandma and my great-grandparents and great aunties and uncles! I love that the Heritage collection invites us to scrapbook important family photos!
Once I found the spot for my photo cluster and layers, I turned to the sticker sheet in the Project Pad. The flowers caught my eye, and I used Sticky Thumb foam adhesive to raise the stickers for added dimension. I fussy cut the yellow flower from the same sheet my sentiment came from. I chose a vellum floral die cut from the ephemera pack and to finish off the floral areas, I tucked in a few of the glossy puffy sticker leaves and added the glossy puffy butterfly on top!
For a few final touches, I added some sequins from my Carousel stash and some gold splatters, I decided to add a small pop of pattern at the top of my page by making a small tear and adhering floral paper underneath. I mounted my page on another sheet of white card stock for a subtle touch of dimension.
Thanks so much for joining me! I love having this photo on a scrapbook page, be sure to check out the gorgeous Heritage Project Pad at Joann.com or if you are lucky to have a store near you, you can see it in person!
