Mandy here with you today, and I’m super excited to be sharing my first layout using the brand new Unforgettable collection! I’m totally loving everything about this new collection, especially those gorgeous colours and the stunning florals! I decided to scrapbook some candid photos of my youngest daughter Eleanor on this layout. I just love the way they capture her joyful and carefree personality, and I think this collection was perfect for documenting this happy memory.
I started my layout off by trimming about half an inch off the top and bottom edges of my white cardstock background, and I then tucked a strip of the Pretty Bits patterned paper under each of those edges. Next I chose four papers from the 6×8 Paper Stack and I layered them together to create a matt for my photos to sit on. I didn’t add adhesive all the way to the edges of the patterned papers as I wanted to give the layout some more interest by lifting the corners of the papers up a little.
I also used a couple of the patterned papers from the 6×8 Paper Stack to matt my photos with. I adhered the bottom photo using craft foam to give it some extra dimension.
There are so many gorgeous pieces in the die cut ephemera pack, and I used a few of these to create an embellishment cluster to the right of the top photo. How pretty are those florals?! You can also see here that I added a flair button to the cluster as well.
To balance out the first cluster, I created another one to the left of the bottom photo. This gives the layout a diagonal flow, drawing the viewer’s eye from the bottom left to the top right. This second cluster includes some more die cut ephemera pieces as well as a sticker from the accessory sticker sheet.
I LOVE the new Foam Title Stickers in this collection, and I couldn’t resist using one of the foam words as the title for my layout. It’s a quick and easy way to add a gorgeous eye-catching title to a page!
I finished the layout off with a sprinkling of enamel dots as well as a few little word stickers.
I love how this page turned out, and I can’t wait to create some more projects using this stunning collection!
