I have two layouts to share today, and they each have a few things in common with the other. For one, they are both created with Scraptastic's February kit, Everyday Is Like Sunday. Secondly, they each feature a large heart as an embellishment. And finally, the photos on both pages are of my mom, with two of my sisters in one, and with three of her grandkids in another. Here is the first page:
A sweet color combo was created with papers from the kit. A gallon of pink combined with a quart of cool turquoise and a pint of yellow, are placed on a clean background of white. And yes, I've actually followed a design principle, the gallon, quart, pint principle! I also left white space on the page, really white "white space", without feeling like I should fill it up. Instead, I filled up a little vellum baggie and placed it behind the photo. Using a small manilla coin envelope as a guide, I was able to make my own little envelope and fill it with colorful confetti punched from leftover paper scraps:
A tear strip from an Elle's Studio paper is the source of all of those little horizontal word banners:
The large heart, cut from a sheet of the patterned paper, was outlined with baker's twine to give it nice dimension:
And now on to the second page and my second heart embellishment. This one is pieced from the kit's patterned paper scraps, meant to resemble a quilt. Pen stitching everywhere gives continuity to the elements:
It was quite fun creating with pink for a change! That's what I love about kits...they stretch my creativity and keep my pages looking fresh and different. As usual, this Scraptastic kit had plenty of the latest and greatest to inspire me!
