My Girl Baby Layout with Guest Designer Karla

Hey there crafty friends! Karla here today, and I’m super excited to be Guest Designing here today- what an honor! Today, I’m sharing a layout that I made of my youngest daughter, Erica, when she was just a year old. Wow – time flies – she’s now almost 5!

I started off choosing a sketch and layered on papers and stickers from the Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Lori Whitlock. I just love these lovely bright papers, and the pretty sequins from the Pinky Pie, Spring Blooms and Let’s Be Mermaids Sequin Mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop were the perfect embellishments! I love using a sketch as a starting point, then choosing my photos, papers and embellishments.

These wonderful Cork Chevrons are so awesome for layering! I pulled out some paper ephemera diecuts from a My Mind’s Eye All Things Girl package to add to my layout. I love the vintage feel of these diecuts!

I used the tiny silver stars from the Pinky Pie collection on this pretty crown, which I layered over a sticker from the EP collection pack. I added some handwritten journaling and stamped the date with an Amy Tan date stamp. I love that a lot of the paper packs come with coordinated journaling cards in them. Even if I choose not to use them in a pocket page, they are great to use on a layout!

These sweet little flower sequins in the Pinky Pie Sequin Mix were just perfect to layer on the flower sticker. They are subtle and add a pretty shine! You can see some of the stitching that I added across my page. Erica was very excited to #1 – have another layout of her own baby pics and #2 – help me with the stitching!

I love to take bits and pieces to create a cluster which helps draws the eye in to the title area. As you can see here I have felties, cork, string and papers which adds a lot of texture without a lot of bulk, which takes up less room in albums.

To give the embossed cardstock this shine I applied a thin layer of the Dazzlerz. I came across a cool technique the Dazzlerz can be used in. It can exactly be used as an adhesive for foil sheets. Apply a thin layer of the paste to the cardstock, let it get to the tacky stage, maybe five minutes, rub the foil in the area you want and remove. You should be left with something that looks like this.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this fun technique in how to incorporated the Dazzlerz into your crafty work.
