It's Lina, today sharing this layout of my two babes using the Free Spirit collection.
This picture... this picture melts my heart! The two of them love each other so and I managed to snap a quick picture of the two mid cuddle. Both entertained by the iPad but loving each other none the less! It only lasted about 3.7 seconds, but I was quick enough to take this picture! Ha!
Let's jump right in... I started the layout by cutting two triangles and adhering them to my background sheet. Creating a diagonal quadrants. Then, I sewed around the perimeter and down the sides of the triangles with my little sewing machine. I used plain white thread, I like this look best. The papers I used for the background are Dreamy and Wildflowers.
I chose a variety of papers in the collection for my matting. I think they were all scraps to be honest. I don't think I cut into a new, whole sheet. Pretty impressive, right? I used the corally-orange border in the Accessory Stickers sheet as part of my layering behind my photo.
Working on my title, I fussy cut the word "happy" from one of the cut apart sheets. There is also a lower case one in the Die Cut Ephemera pack but I liked this one better. Well, truth is that I cut out the one from the die cut sheet first and then noticed the other one. It worked out well though because I wouldn't have been able to arrange the letters the way I wanted with the pre-cut one since it was all one piece. For the rest of my title, I used the Alphabet Stickers and then sewed through them with my sewing machine.
To add to my love of tiny words and phrases, I created my own by cutting out some of the type patterned paper from the collection. The wording was perfect!
Hope you liked my layout! Have a wonderful day!
