Good morning, I'm up on the Artfull Crafts blog today with another layout I made with Kaisercraft's new Dream Big Collection. My layout is about my dear friend's little boy (aged 2.5) who came to visit Brielle when she was a few days old. He had a teddy bear for her and wanted to give it to her. She was asleep in the bassinet, and of course I had to capture him giving the teddy to "the baby". So cute!!!
I loved using a more busy patterned paper with a plainer one, and in this instance I paired the orange pattern with the trendy chalk board. A strip of paper and some washi tape across the join, and of course I had to sew around the edges. Not only is this a great way to add texture, but it also saves in adhesive!
I kept this layout really simple, as the photo is so sweet. The cut apart card served as the title, and I just layered some other die cuts, added some twine, sequins and some stars. The photo mat is actually a 6 x 4 cut apart card that I strategically cut and placed with elements over it so it looks bigger than it really is. I trimmed the corners with my exacto knife and tucked the corners of the photo into them. Of course I had to finish my layout with some white ink splatters!
You can purchase Dream Big in the Artfull Crafts shop here.
Thanks for looking!
