Designer’s Choice: You Are My Happy

Hello! It’s Claudia here and today I’m sharing a layout I made using the gorgeous April ‘One Fine Day’ kit and the ‘Stay Cool’ Add On. Did I mention how gorgeous the kits are? It was hard deciding what colors to use because they are all so pretty. I finally decided on what I wanted to create and went for a color scheme that, in my opinion, is perfect for spring; yellow, green and pink.

I’m a huge fan of split page designs where one half is white and the other half is covered with patterned paper; I find that this is especially useful for papers that would be a bit too busy to use as a full background. On this particular paper I didn’t cut off the branding strip because the shade of pink was perfect for the color scheme I wanted to use.

I added some of the Pinkfresh Felicity Adhesive Puff Sequins to create a little cluster. They are also perfect to add a pop of color.

I love the Maggie Holmes Bloom Fringed Hearts that came with the ‘Stay Cool’ add on – they are a great way to add some interest and dimension to your layouts. I added a sticker from the Dear Lizzy Happy Place Mini phrase sticker sheet that came with the kit and an ephemera piece from the Elle’s Studio Little Moments Bits and Pieces pack to decorate the heart.

I always like to do a lot of layering on my layouts, so I selected some papers from the kit that matched my color scheme. After that I started placing some embellishments between the layers to make them stand out a bit more. One of those pieces was the grey tag and I added some twine to it because I think it’s always great to have a lot of different textures/materials on your layout.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope that I was able to inspire you in some kind of way. Have a wonderful day!
