Hello SMS fans! It’s Sarah on the blog today with my very last Shake It Sunday. I am so thrilled to have spent more than a year with you all sharing my creative adventures! Today I am sharing an 8.5×11 layout using a bunch of new summer collections and a ton of goodies from the SMS shop! Here it is:
I started my layout with a 12×12 piece of American Crafts Textured White Card Stock that I cut down to 8.5×11. I cut out the new April free cut files from Hip Kit Club on my silhouette and got started.
I used white gesso to prep my card stock for lots of mixed media. I stared with Shimmerz Coloringz in Pretty In Pink and Heidi Shine in Butter. I used the packaging technique and gave it a few splatters. I made an embellishment cluster with a die cut flower from Oh My Heart, a puffy heart from Chasing Dreams and a couple of stickers from the Oasis sticker sheet. The puffy dark green heart is also from Oh My Heart.
Next, I used Red Tape to adhere my cut file to the paper. I sewed around the sun with my sewing machine and filled it with some of the gorgeous Pocket Full of Posies sequin mix. Then I sewed it shut along the cloud edge to seal in the sequins.
I printed my photo on my Instax printer and layered a tag from Chasing Dreams, a Small Glassine Bag and half of a 4″ White Lace Doily behind the picture. I embellished around the photo with a banner from Lovely Day and a die cut flower from Oh My Heart.
I used some older Thickers called Holly Jolly for my title along with a new acrylic word from Bella Blvd. I embellished with a die cut flower from Oh My Heart, puffy stickers from Oasis and Cashing Dreams, and some old resin flowers from Dear Lizzy. I finished the whole thing off with a good splat of Heidi Shine in Gold and a roller phrase stamp from Gather.
I hope you have enjoyed my last Shake It Sunday! I wish the new SMS Design Team a great creative year! A huge thank you to shop owner, Jody! It has been a pure pleasure working with you and your fabulous team! I can’t wait to cheer you all on in your creative journeys. You can see the Youtube video for this layout here:
