Good Times

hello everyone, i’m dropping in today to share a layout i did last weekend using goodies from elle’s studio. i used a mix products from Cameron, saltwater and Penelope collection. i am amazed how seamlessly the colors and designs work together.  in this layout, i used this photo of ian and ethan to document the boys enjoying the good times, sleeping in and relaxing on a saturday morning.

i started with “endless summer” paper from saltwater collection. i hand stitched a heart as a background and used white thread here to keep the stitching subtle. then i added some mist and sequins along the stitching to outline the heart shape.

i wanted to add a flower to the layout but couldn’t find a suitable one in my stash so i made one using doilies. i layered the doilies on a piece of round cardstock and added a brad to secure them together.  i am surprised how it turned out and i love it! will definitely add this in my future projects.

to create a banner so i cut up the labels and cutouts from saltwater and Cameron collection and layer them under the photo. next, i added a ribbon and embellish it with some buttons, wood veneers and my favourite gold foil heart sticker. to finish off the layout, i trim the sides of  the “endless summer” paper and adhered it on “bows” paper from the new Penelope collection.

thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed this layout 
as much as I do.
