Happy NSD everyone!! I hope you're taking the time to sit down and enjoy your favorite hobby today…I know I have 🙂 I wanted to share a layout I made using bits & pieces from the new Hello Sunshine line from Pink Paislee…it is full of great phrases + trendy accents, and I love every bit of it!
When sifting through the 3×4 Journal cards that were designed for this line, two of them jumped right out at me and I knew exactly which photo I wanted to pair them with. Don't you love when that happens?! 😉
I scrapbook 80% of what my family is up to these days using pocket pages…so it should be no surprise that I am a sucker for a grid design, lol. I stuck with that and just offset the grid a bit by pairing 3×4 cards + photo with 3×3 squares. You aren't breaking any laws if you 'think outside the box/grid' and move things a bit, lol…I promise.
I love that vellum has made a comeback (especially colors like the teal squares and pink stars!)…and 99% of the time, just layer it onto white cardstock to allow the color to stand out. Gold seems to make it's way onto every page I make these days, and the glitter cardstock definitely fit the theme of this page. I layered it underneath 2 of the squares I cut from the die cut files available on the SCT site (for free…awesome!) so it wasn't too overwhelming. Then I added more gold with washi tape, stamps directly on my photo, spray ink and even a Sharpie marker…the sun die cut was a bit too yellow, so the Sharpie came in handy. 😉
This line comes with an awesome set of chipboard stickers, and I used a few here and there…love the word bubbles. The black & white chipboard alphabet is trendy as well, and I LOVE the graphic feel it adds. I hope you'll join me on the last Wednesday of each month right here on the SCT blog and check out my first article on Pocket Style Pages in the spring issue of SCT!
I hope you've enjoyed the day! Thanks for checking in!
