Hello Scrapbook Circle friends!
Today, I’m here with my Design Team choice layout using the April Our Story kit.
My oldest daughter is growing up so fast. Her 5th grade year is quickly coming to an end, and she will be starting middle school before I know it. I wanted to document this using a quote by E. E. Cummings. I used the exclusive printable this month to create a tag for hidden journaling. I attached a small piece of ribbon to it, so you would know to pull.
I cut out the quote big and bold using my Silhouette machine. I attached it to the ombre Crate Paper pattern paper. I had to glue all the inner pieces of the A, O, R, and Bs…tedious but worth it. I added some machine stitching around the edges. Next, I attached my photos to the layout. I adhered the bigger photo with foam adhesive, making sure to leave a space for my hidden journal tag. I added some stickers from the Pinkfresh Studio alpha stickers (love those sketchy stars). I also fussy cut a couple word washi from the Maggie Holmes paper, and attached it to the bottom right of my layout. To finish off my layout, I added some gold ink splatters.
I absolutely love the look of this layout! For once, I used a colored cardstock, instead of my typical white, and I love it! I also love the bold quote, and it suits this layout perfectly.
I hope I have inspired you to get crafty!
