Hello Crate Paper friends! Lorilei here today sharing a layout using the gorgeous All Heart collection, featuring a big title with the lovely pink alphas!
I started the layout with a white background and a big white floral cut out. I can tell you that 90% of making this layout involved a lot of shuffling around of super cute embellishments! I finally realized there was just too much white. I slipped a 6×12 piece of the Peace Out paper behind the cut file and that fixed everything for me. The cut file and embellishments “popped” out more and gave me a direction to continue the layout.
It made the most design sense to have my photo in the center seam of the two papers and cut file. When I saw the round shape created by the flower of the cut file, I knew that would be the spot for my title. The pink Peace Out paper and Chill alpha are the perfect matches. I wrapped my title around the flower and added a few stars to break up the words. I love that the Chill alpha has a great mix of upper and lower case letters to make fun titles!
Next up was embellishing, I knew I wanted to use one of the holographic Glitter Hearts since they matched my daughter’s dance costume. The Glitter Hearts are nice and chunky, so I added foam to the back of my photo and popped a cute little pink frame over the focal point of the photo!
Since I had created so much dimension with the heart and stacked photo, it gave me the opportunity to add chipboard embellishments! I chose the Lookin Good banner first and then continued to layer embellishments around the left side of the photo. The camera is from the sticker sheet, and I added foam adhesive to pop it up. I think the hand embellishment is one of my favorites from the chipboard sheet! Super cute!
This is the first layout I have made with a half and half background, I love the effect it creates and the “space” it creates to treat two sides of a layout differently. If you know me, you know I love white space, but I also adore Crate Paper pattern papers, and I can’t wait to experiment more with this simple technique!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy creating with Crate Paper!
