Beautiful You | Wild at Heart | Mandy Melville

Hello everyone,

Mandy here with you today to share a layout using the gorgeous Wild at Heart collection. I’ve been wanting to scrapbook this photo of Abi and I taken on Mother’s Day, but until now haven’t been able to find the right collection. I could have converted it to black and whie, but I really like it in colour, and then I remembered the beautiful deep pinks and blues in the Wild at Heart collection and I knew that it would be perfect! I love pulling out an older collection that I haven’t used in awhile and giving it some more love!

I started my layout off by trimming down a four inch wide strip of the reverse side of the Patchwork patterned paper and adhering it towards the top of the page. This paper provided a nice pop of that gorgeous pink colour, but was not too busy so as to overpower the other elements on the page. I then positioned my photo in the centre, overlapping the bottom edge of the patterned paper.

Next I got to work fussy cutting some of the stunning floral clusters out of the Luscious patterned paper, and I tucked them under either side of the photo. I think the florals frame the photo beautifully!

I created a small cluster in the top right hand corner of the layout using another smaller fussy cut floral piece and a circular die cut from the collection. I adhered the die cut with foam tape for added dimension.

For my title, I combined two of the lovely chipboard stickers to create the phrase ‘Beautiful You’. To the left of the title I created a small cluster to balance out the one in the top right. This one includes a label sticker, a chipboard sticker, and a flair button.

I finished the layout off with a few enamel dots and a couple of little word stickers.

Thanks so much for joining me here today. I hope that you enjoyed taking a look at my layout, and maybe you’ve been inspired to pull out an older collection to use on your next project as well. I’ll be back later in the month to share a project using the brand new Unforgettable collection!
