Hugs & Kisses


I just wanted to share a layout that I made this afternoon, using both this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: creating large frames with smaller frame stamps and this month's colour challenge on the Crate Paper blog:


Here's the layout I made, using some photos that Sage took last summer at Stanley Park, one evening when we were having a wiener roast:


I used Papertrey ink cardstock (Stamper's Select White) & stamp (Happy Day), Bazzill cardstock (dark grey), Crate Paper patterned paper and stickers, an American Crafts ampersand thicker and Fancy Pants & My Mind's Eye decorative brads.

I made the Happy Day stamp taller by stamping half of it twice and leaving a space in between the halves. To this, I added some Crate Paper stickers to create my title.

Here's a close-up of my journaling:


Thanks for looking!

What an interesting group of colors...and no I am not using the euphemistic version of the word interesting either. ;-) They really are eye catching in a very heritage-chic kind of way. I think I am smitten. Your use and placement of the brads is fantastic. Love this!
