Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to a fabulous 2020! Today I have a new layout to share with you using the gorgeous Unforgettable collection. I chose to scrapbook a couple of photos of my beautiful Abi, taken when we were on holidays recently. I think that the colours in the photo work perfectly with the Unforgettable collection!

I started off with the Garland patterned paper as my background, however I turned it upside down as I wanted the cluster of flowers on the garland to be at the top of the page rather than the bottom. I love that this paper provides a gorgeous, ready-made background, which makes the design process so much quicker!

I printed my photos about 3×4 inches, and then matted them using two of the patterned papers from the 6×8 paper stack. I then positioned them overlapping the larger floral cluster at the top of the page. I also added a couple more floral die cuts into the garland to give it some more dimension and interest.

I added a few embellishments around the photos including a flair button to the left, and a tab sticker and butterfly die cut to the right.

To balance out the large floral cluster in the top left hand corner of the page, I added another smaller one in the bottom right hand corner. I fussy cut this one from the beautiful Glorious patterned paper. I also added a butterfly to the cluster, which I cut out of the Pretty Bits paper. I adhered it just in the middle section so that the wings would lift nicely off the page, once again adding some lovely dimension to the layout.

For my title, I chose the die cut piece that says ‘Living the Dream’, which I think was appropriate for these holiday snaps! I added this over on the right hand side of the page above the floral cluster. To finish the layout off I scattered a few little die cut flowers and some enamel dots around the page.

Thanks so much for joining me here on the blog today and taking a look at my layout! I’ll be back later in the month with another project to share with you.
