Hello everybody, how are you today? Caroli here, and on this Sunday I want to share with you my first project using the fabulous April kit Origins, which features beautiful collection Life in Color by Simple Stories.
I love all the flowers and spring feeling of this kit, as soon as I saw it I thought it would be perfect for scrapping some pics of myself and my little daughter wearing flowers crowns during a pregnancy photoshoot we had last January.
The paper with a flower arrangement on the bottom right was just perfect for the idea I had in mind: using a big pic of us and hide something behind it, some kind of “interactive” layout.
As you can see, I cut a lot of flowers from different papers in the kit and used them to create layer of embellishments on my layout in combination with some pieces of the ephemera set, also included on the kit.
I also used these cute leaves I cut sing the exclusive cutfiles included on the kit. Although the original files was some kind of background, I ungroup it and used just the leaves in my layout, they are the perfect match for the flowers!
As I said, my idea was to hide the journaling behind the big pic, because I wanted to write some deep feelings and thoughts for my daughter regarding my pregnancy, so I used a piece of patterned paper as a base for the main cluster and below it I put another pic and my journaling.
Of course I added few more flowers on the second pic and also more leaves, it’s quite simple but I love the effect of both together.
I love the clear stickers of this collection included on the kit, they come in black, silver and colors and are great for adding tiny details and make your project more interesting. In this case I used some phrases and a heart in black, they are so tiny and so cute! I also used a yellow enamel heart by Bella Blvd., I love those enamel hearts! Good thing they are also included on the kit 🙂
Finally, for the title I used this black alpha by Bella Blvd. included on th kit and silver Thickers from my stash. I love the touches of silver of this collection, I think silver goes perfect with bright colors and spring theme, don´t you think?
I complemented my title with the rounded letters included on the alpha sheet by Bella Blvd. I like the idea of combining different fonts and alphas on the titles of my layouts, this make them more interesting!
Here is the final result, such a simple, colorful and very flowery layout documenting an important memory and expressing all my love to my little girl. These are some of my fave pictures ever and I’m glad I got to document this memory using my kit, it’s the perfect frame!
I hope you liked this simple idea and use it to document a special memory. Thank you for joining us, have a happy Sunday!
