Who would have thought that I would start to really enjoy these one and two photo layouts? Not me, that's for sure!
But really, this one was just SO much fun to put together.
This is this week's Elle's Studio sketch, and I'm also going to link up at Paper Issues, since I think this kind of qualifies as eclectic, at least eclectic for me.
I wanted my paper patterns to line up with that diagonal from the layout, so instead of cutting the paper on a diagonal and just fitting it onto the page, I cut the papers along the lines of their patterns. Consequently, they don't extend the full width of the page, but I like how it creates kind of a frame around the piece.
It was lots of fun choosing the elements for the layout. That doily stamp is an Elle's Studio exclusive, that I fussy cut. Layered on top of it, is a great embellishment that came in a Polka Dot Whimsy kit. Its from an etsy shop called Citron Faire that is no longer open.
Those flat red sequins also came in the Polka Dot Whimsy kit.
I used the Trinity Alphabet stamp set, and cut out the letters. Those, the doily stamp, and even those red sequins were run through the Xyron machine - makes adhering SO much easier.
I added a little line of Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine at the top, and paired some Cranberry grosgrain with an Elle's studio pennant below.
And what do you think of those chevron stamps? Like them? I've been carving again! I actually have a whole set, that I'll share with you soon.
Thanks for coming by!
