Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a layout inspired by the Hip Kit Club May 2018 mood board, and I am also incorporating colored cardstock.
I was inspired by the Mood Board in several ways. The first thing that jumped out at me was the wreath- the circle, the flowers, and the natural elements of the wreath. I was also inspired by all the florals and colors of the mood board.
I am using some of my favorite photos of Ruby when she was a super chunky 4 month old in her jumper. These photos are already more than a year old. Where does the time go?!
I started out by machine stitching a big circle over and over on my cardstock to echo the wreath. Then I added some stamping using the Vicki Boutin stamps from this month’s color kit and Distress Oxide ink. I watered down some of the VB paint from the color kit and splattered it across the cardstock.
Next, I backed my photos with some pattern paper and adhered them to the layout with foam tape for a little dimension. I embellished the photos with the floral Simple Stories chipboard stickers, Amy tangerine clear butterfly stickers, and Bella Blvd puffy hearts. Since most of the elements were on the top right portion of my page, I wanted to bring something to the lower left side. I added a small embellishment cluster, and I backed my cardstock with pattern paper, but only on the left and bottom sides. To add a bit of the natural element of the wreath, I tied some natural twine on the Amy Tangerine tag.
I love how my layout turned out. I hope you do too!
