LOOK UP


Oh boy i love it when the mail man shows up to my door with 3 boxes full of scrappy stuff. Especially when it means getting the Maggie Holmes collection, my Studio Calico kit, their new Atlantic collection and a hundred more things! Obviously i had to do a layout right away with all of my favorite items.
It all started with two papers: the constellation one (i loooove it), and the yellow flowery one from Maggie Holmes (it's the 6x6 version). Then i decided i wanted to created some sort of a border around that yellow square, so i picked lots of bits and pieces from Elle's Studio and Story Teller, plus a few elements that where sitting in my scrap bowl. I also liked the idea of using a page from a book (perhaps because i just received my Happy Little Moments kit!), and even though by the end only a little bit of this book page is showing, it's okay because something "wonderful" happened. I realized the last line of this page i had randomly picked ended with the sentence "that's wonderful". Awesome right? I love when that happens!

Aaaand moving on to the embellishments. Same thing here, i picked all of my favorite from my order: circle wood veneer from the Sundrifter collection, cork arrows from Atlantic, enamel dots, punched butterflies. And the new Heidi Swapp transparent letters for the title. Love them (i'm saying that a lot, am i not?). Anyway, that's pretty much it. the layout with all the things i currently love (including the photo!)

  2. Ooooh, scrappy goodness! I love your layout! Those cork arrows are to die for and all those different layers. I must challenge myself to do layering and only show a tiny bit, I really like the effect! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
