for 8 1/2" by 11" sized layouts :) Don't get me wrong, I love my 12 x 12's, but there is something about creating within that smaller space that I really enjoy. I received my Daffodil Hill kit Monday & was so ready to dive right into it, but decided to wait & create one more with that fabulous Lasting Love kit. I headed over to the member gallery & found this adorable design from Cathy Harper to get me started . . .
I loved the single photo shifted to the right of the page and her clustering of embellishments around it. I also loved the diagonal scattering of bits from left to right, on either side of the photo. Here is what I came up with . . .
I found this simple title on (where else) Pinterest - love it!!! You can also see a close-up of how I used splatters of mist, the twinkle, and tiny punched hearts to create a similar "scattering" of bits, as Cathy did.
Below you'll see a close-up of my own clustering of embellishments around the photo & of course I had to add in a bit of machine stitching :) You might notice that gorgeous doily border . . . created with the stamp from the Lasting Love kit :) I just drew a line on the white cardstock showing me where the pattern paper would line up. Then, before I glued the pattern paper down, I stamped the image down the line, top to bottom :)
Have a great Wednesday & thanks for the inspiration Cathy!!
