Be Real layout: You are loved

Hello crafty friends!

Today, I’m back with a “be real” layout using December’s Everyday Stories kit.  Lets face it…with iPhones these days, we take lots of photos, especially when you have a brand new baby.  However, those photos rarely get printed or even put into a layout.  My camera roll is at 1,503 photos.  Having a squirmy baby, I take dozens of photos to get the right shot, plus she’s just so cute, I can’t stop!  I decided to document this with a screenshot of my camera roll on my iPhone.

To create my layout, I stitched 2 of the Crate Paper pattern papers together.  Then, I created a multilayered mat behind my photo using various papers from the kit, and highlighting the gorgeous marbled paper by Maggie Holmes.  My title was a happy accident.  I had originally planned to have a big hand stitched title, using white thread for a subtle, muted look.  I printed out my title on the computer (the font I used was futura), and cut them out intending to trace them onto my paper.  However, once I had the letters laid out, I loved the bold look of the font in black.  So, I traced the letters on black cardstock, cut them out and glued them onto my layout.  I still wanted a little of the hand stitched element, so I added a little bit of black stitching on the letters.  To embellish my layout, I added some of the freckled fawn washi labels, enamel shapes from the reset girl, and ink splatters around my photo mat.  I also cut a few mini phrases from the Jillibean Soup pattern paper, and added them to my photo.  Then, I added a little bit of journaling to finish my layout.

ahsang-sc-youareloved-2I love the way my layout turned out!  I especially love the happy accident of my bold title; it looks clean and graphic.

I hope I inspired you to get those photos printed and onto a layout!  Have an awesome day!
