Shine Bright | Hello Lovely | Elodie Lusseau

Happy Monday, crafty peeps!

It’s Elodie on the blog today with a new layout featuring the super pretty Hello Lovely collection that you can find here in the CVS online store. I played along with last week’s summer theme and used a large photo of my little one playing on the beach a couple of years ago.

To go with this cute summery pic, I wanted to create a little scene and decided to make a shining sun on my page. And this design was just perfect for my little miss sunshine!

I started with the background and backed a piece of the Lucky Dip paper with the Flower Patch paper and its beautiful floral pattern.

To make the sun, I drew a circle on one side of the photo using a pan as a template and cut it following the pencil lines. I then handstitched the borders with white thread and placed it on the background with foam squares to make it stand out.

My next step was to embellish the borders of the picture with gorgeous Hello Lovely embellies: die cuts from the ephemera pack, enamel dots and a flair button for the title.

For the sunbeams, I used paper banners from the ephemera pack as well as strips that I cut out in the Delightful, Glimmer, Confetti, Lucky Dip and Flower Patch papers. I stamped the date on one of the banners, I gently folded up the sides of the strips to add a little more dimension to my layout and tucked them under the photo. I love how the colorful embellies and paper strips pop against the black and white photo and background!

I had a lot of fun creating this summer page and I hope it inspires you to go big and use large photos on your layouts! Thanks so much for visiting the CVS blog today! Wishing you a lovely day and a great week ahead!
