Mandy here with you today to share a new layout using the gorgeous Midnight collection! The beautiful soft colours in this collection made it perfect for documenting some super cute photos of my youngest daughter Eleanor. I took these photos when we were out at a playground recently, and I think that they just capture her sweet personality beautifully. I decided to print them in black and white so that they would really pop against the soft colours that I’ve used on the page.
I started my layout off by adding a strip of the Inky Depths patterned paper down the length of the page, which provided a base for me to add my photos on top of. I matted my photos with patterned papers from the 6×8 Paper Pad to help them to stand out from the background, and I adhered the smaller one with foam tape to give it some extra dimension.
Next I got to work fussy cutting some floral clusters out of the Bloom & Grow patterned paper. I seriously can’t get enough of fussy cutting that paper! I tucked the florals under the right hand side of the top photo, and under the left hand side of the bottom photo. I didn’t add any adhesive under the outer leaves of the floral clusters as I wanted them to lift off the page a little rather that sit flat against it. On the left hand side of the smaller photo I also added a flair button and a die cut flower from the collection.
For my title, I combined the chipboard word that says ‘happy’ with some alpha stickers from my stash. Underneath the title I added some strips of typed journaling.
To finish the layout off I added a couple of little word stickers as well as a few more little die cut flowers.
Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope that you’ve enjoyed taking a look at my layout, and that you’ve been inspired in some way. I’ll be back later in the month with another project to share with you. Until then, take care!
