Hi CVS friends! It’s Anna here with you again with a new layout. The focus of my layouts are usually my daughters, but for today’s project, I decided to use this picture of me and my sister. We both prefer to be behind the camera, but sometimes we have fun taking some selfies.

For my background, I made some mixed media on a watercolor sheet with pink and blue pigment powders. Then, I covered the top half of the page with two ripped papers. I used the B side of the Pretty Bits paper from the Unforgettable Collection and also the B side from the Daisy Days paper from the Daydream Collection.

I framed my photo with this wood polaroid frame from the Daydream Die Cut Ephemera pack and raised it with foam to make it stand out. I embellished it all around by creating clusters of flowers from the die cut pack too. I tried to give some dimension to the page raising some flowers with foam dots.


For my title, I used the word “hello” from the More than words collection chipboard titles. I put it on top of the frame, and below it, I used an old foam alphabet that I had in my stash to spell the word sister. I completed the title with one of the stickers from the Daydream Accessory Stickers.

On the left side of the Hello, I glued a puffy fabric heart from the Daydream collection. I’m so in love with these hearts.

Finally, I cut a strip from the Garden Variety paper and use a scallop border punch. I lifted the edges and placed it on the top of my page to accentuate the romantic look of the page. I also scattered some hearts and butterflies die cuts.

I love how it turned out, so girly and romantic. I hope it gives you some inspiration. That’s a simple design to use when you’re stuck.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! See you very soon with another project!

Anna xx

    Beautiful layout. Could you please share the brand of pigment powders you used for the mixed media background?
