Hello scrappy friends!! I hope you’re all having a great weekend!! It’s been crazy at my house with summer coming to an end and school starting in a few weeks. Also, we have decided to list our house for sale. Why not? Let’s add to the stress. LOL
Anyway, I have another scraplift layout to share with you this week and I am excited about this one! I found the layout on instagram on Letitia Guelpa’s account. You can find her on IG as @letitiaguelpa.
I just loved the big title and the patterned paper and use of multiple photos. Isn’t it just a darling layout!! I love it!
Here is my take on it and I am also so in love with my layout:
I have had the Claudia Van R Designs summer collection, called Hot Right Now, printed out for a while now and I haven’t used it yet so this week I decided to use that with my SpiegelMom Scraps products. I LOVE the colors of Claudia’s kit! They worked perfect with the photos I had of my middle son at swimming lessons.
I wanted to mimic the big and long title so I used an Amy Tangerine Thicker alpha set called ‘Other Half’. In the top left corner you can see a green and white diagonal striped paper….. BUT, it’s not a paper!! I fooled you didn’t I?!! lol I decided to use the diagonal striped glassine bags you can get in the shop and cut it up to fit that corner. I really love how it looks!
I used the pretty Spring Blooms sequin mix all down the layout around the big title. This was a happy accident because I spilt a bunch of them on the layout to the right of the title as I was pulling them out of the bag and I really like how it looked so I decided to “spill” them all around the title. I think that’s my favorite part of it! Don’t you love it when an accident happens and it just completes the layout?
The ampersand that I used in the title came with Claudia’s kit. I used my Silhouette cameo to cut out all the embellishments you see on this layout, including the ampersand. I popped it up on little pop dots to make it the same height as the thickers.
My son is on the far right. I really love this photo of him sitting with his class on the edge of the pool. I also love that you can see he is in a class of all girls. That seems to happen a lot with him. lol
I also used a few of the new cork hearts that haven’t been release yet, but they will be soon so keep your eye on the shop! I believe Jody will be adding them to the shop this week sometime!
I also used Shimmerz Dazzlers The Tide That Binds Texturez to add a faint paint look on the edge of the patterned papers. I like how it makes them stand out against the other papers and background.
