Have you seen Crate Paper’s blog this week? If not, you’re missing out. The design team is selecting various color families to create a project. I’ve selected yellow! I love the color yellow – for clothes, home decor, and just about anything, so I made a layout…yes, a layout! Can you believe it?
The photo was taken in New Haven, a part of Copenhagen that is much like a port with beautifully painted houses. I loved this part of the city. We had dinner in one of the restaurants and it was the best fish and chips I’ve ever had (don’t tell England I said that)!
I used Maggie Holmes’ Crate Paper fabric polaroid-inspired framed die cuts. I layered some patterned paper behind the frame and added some vellum over top. The vellum mutes out the design a bit. Love that effect! Next, I added the photo and a the tabbed cardstock “hello” sticker. I “taped” the embellishment to the patterned paper.
For the title, I glitzed it up with these gold sparkle Thickers. I think these are my all-time favorite Thickers…ever! I need to order more…lots more just to have!
To embellish the frame, I layered an oval die cut with a gold chevron glittered tag and a fabric floral element.
I also sprayed some of the layout with some Mr. Huey’s white mist to mute out the sunburst pattern on the paper.
So, what do you think about my first layout in at least two years or so?
That’s all for today! Don’t forget to take time and enjoy yourself and don’t sweat the small stuff! Take care!
