i'm so glad that today is wednesday, and it's my feature day at kerri bradford designs! because i don't think i can sit on these layouts any longer. lol! i was SO excited when kerri asked me to be one of her special guests, for her one year anniversary celebration of launching her own designs.
i hope you're checking out kerri's sales, going on this week! today is a good one. those are some of my favorite kits, and i used a few in my projects for today.
i have 3 projects to share with you today. 2 layouts, and a card.
i love this photo of my girls, and printed it out just a few days after taking it. finally decided it was time to scrap it. all the papers are from lily bee. they were sweet enough to give me a pack of paper at winter CHA, which was 7 months ago. i'm glad i finally got around to using it, because i love the colors and happy patterns.
i used a flower border, from the borderlines #1 kit, and cut it from 3 papers. a aqua dot paper, a yellow dot paper, and some brown cardstock. on the left side of the layout, i layered together the aqua dot flower and the brown cardstock flower. i used pop dots on the top piece, and offset them just a tad bit from each other. i added a little chipboard flower embellishment to the flower center to finish it off.
for the right side of the layout, i felt like it needed a little something to fill up some space. i didn't have room for a full border. so i simply cut off the stem of the flower, and used just the flower by itself. i layered the yellow dot flower, on top of the brown cardstock flower, using pop dots. and a chipboard flower embellishment to finish it off.
i thought the "hello sunshine" title, from the this & that: summertime (just shapes) collection, cut was perfect for this summer photo of alyssa and sarah. i cut the "hello" from red cardstock, and the "sunshine" from aqua pattern paper and brown cardstock.
i try and cut a few extra shapes, when i'm using my silhouette. if i'm sending a piece of paper through, i like to try and use up the space and get the most out of that piece of paper. which is why i cut these shapes out, thinking i could use them on a card. i also managed to use scraps of paper from my layout, along with some ribbon and the extra chipboard flowers i had left.
a new favorite layout of mine. all the products on this layout are from my mind's eye. the die cut paper, pattern papers, cardstock (from the reverse side of the pattern), and adorable buttons. the buttons are what i started this entire layout off of. and a secret about that die cut paper. it's got tons of glitter on the backside. and those that know me, know i'm not a huge fan of glitter. i actually adhered a piece of cardstock to the back, to cover it all up, but i'm still finding glitter everywhere.
i was trying to choose a title from the say what #1 kit. i knew i wanted to scrap some photos of either haley or nikolas, from when they came to visit me in june. i was debating between the "this girl" title.
and the "that boy" title. and then i remembered THIS LAYOUT, that i did a few years ago. and i knew right away, that i wanted to use them together, on one layout.
i did the same thing on my titles here, that i did on some of the pieces in the first layout. cut them from different papers, and then layered and pieced them together. i printed out 3 wallet sized photos (2x3) of both haley and nikolas, and adhered them randomly down the sides.
i added some glitter letter stickers, in denim, to spell out their names. and then i added some treaded buttons in a few random, but well thought out and methodically planned places on the layout ;)
i love this little loopy border strip. i cut two of them, from brown cardstock, and adhered them on either side of my pattern paper strips.
