Hey friends! Today I’m sharing a layout I made for my daughter’s 12th birthday. She’s growing up so fast…where does the time go?!
I really wanted to use the 2×2 paper pad by Paige Evans found in the Embellishment Kit, so I got out my Nesting Heart metal dies, and started die cutting away. I also made a few mixed media pages that I die cut hearts out of. On a sheet of white cardstock, I used the stencil and white embossing paste. On another sheet of white cardstock, I used distress oxides to watercolor and ink splatter. I layered different hearts, and stitched down the middle. I have done this technique before, as seen in the layout on this post, but I decided to keep the threads long, a la Paige Evans, and fellow team members Missy and Jana.
I loved the blue cardstock and pink stitching on my last layout, so I repeated it on this layout.
I also tucked in some hidden journaling under the big photo, since I didn’t really see a good place for it on the layout.
I love making these yearly layouts to remember what my girls were like at these ages. I love how this one turned out!
I hope you like my layout, and I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!
