Hello! This is Caroli again and today I want to show you one more project using lovely January kit Hey Sugar, which features Crate Paper, Fancy Pants and Simple Stories goodness.
When creating a layout I think a lot about the title and journaling, this is something important because it’s essential for documenting the feeling and stories behind this layout, and music for me is really helpful when deciding what title to use.
I love including parts of my current favorite songs, because this also helps me documenting the feeling of that moment and complements my memory keeping process. Sometimes a song holds a lot of feelings and memories of daily life, so I love to use them in my layout, whether on title or on journaling.
This time I’ve made this layout using the title of this pretty song by Beyoncé, I love you Like XO. I specially love the version by John Mayer, it’s a beautiful song and I used it as my title because I love these two like XO 🙂
I had in mind placing lots of horizontal stripes of different sizes and textures, so I used some tiny circle grids for creating some of those stripes. I loved how this idea came out, I’m certainly using it again in other projects!
I also used some fringes because they are fun and add a lot of texture. I love the XO paper by Simple Stories included on the kit and of course I fussy cut some of the XOs for my title.
I simply adore this hearts with faces papers, it’s just so cute ♥ I used a stripe and some extra hearts and adhere them with foam dots, which I complemented with some puffy stickers of the same heart, arent’ those the CUTEST EVER!? ♥ Love the effect.
I hope you like the idea of using songs in your layouts, let’s treasure those happy moments as much as possible 🙂 Have a nice day!
XOXO – Caroli
