Hey everyone! I hope you’re having an awesome day! Today I’m sharing a layout featuring photos I took of Ruby’s first taste of lemons. I have to admit that I took these photos specifically for this layout. I bought some lemons, got my baby dressed in a coordinating outfit, and had a photoshoot in our backyard. Do any of you crafters create photoshoots just so you can use a particular product in a layout? There were a few lemon themed products in the March 2018 Hip Kits that I wanted to use, like the Maggie Holmes pattern paper. Needless to say, the photos I got of Ruby tasting lemons were priceless! Ha! I love them!
Here is my layout:
Look at that face on the photo on the left! LOL!!!
I used the March 2018 Hip Kits for my layout: Main Kit, Color Kit, Cardstock Kit, and Project Life Kit. The chiffon cardstock was perfect for a lemon layout, and of course the Maggie Holmes pattern paper.
I used several techniques on this layout. I did some fussy cutting (the pink butterflies), I altered the “smile” chipboard with heat embossing, I did some machine stitching, I created some depth with layers and foam adhesive, and I added some paint splatters using the Vicki Boutin watercolors.
I love the way my layout turned out! I’m so glad I got another page done for Ruby’s album! I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!
