Sweet Sue: Quilt Blocks and Repurposing


I've got a new layout today to share with you using the gorgeous "Sweet Sue" kit. For my twin daughters' 1st birthday, their grandparents bought them a Norway Maple tree that we planted in our front yard. I wanted to document this on a layout but in the pictures we took, everyone was wearing a different color. I decided to turn my photos black and white and went with earthy shades of green, brown, teal and cream for my layout. 


I pulled out almost every green patterned paper that was included in the kit and decided to make a quilt block collage with them. I love the texture each patterned paper adds. I used one of the Elle's Studio label die-cuts as the base for my title but it said "June" on the top. I used another Elle's Studio label die-cut and some Jenni Bowlin alphabet stickers to cover that up since it didn't go with my layout. 


I used several Elle's Studio label die-cuts for my journaling across the page. 


I adhered a few Sassafras Lass flower stickers and accented one of them with a vintage button in the kit. 


And there you have it! I loved working with this kit and can't wait to create more! 

Until next time,
Jill
