Hi crafty friends!

It’s Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a layout inspired by the awesome Grab 5 challenge from interNational Scrapbook Day set by fellow designer Michelle Stokes. I created my layout with the gorgeous new Sunkissed collection and documented a beautiful photo of my eldest niece.

The Grab 5 challenge needed to include:

Patterned Papers
Stitching
Something Gold
Stickers
Ink splatters/sprinkle

Patterned papers – I used a patterned paper as the background at the back of my page, the wreath is cut out from patterned paper and there is also patterned paper behind my photo. Stitching – I have stitched the wreath down with machine stitching. Something Gold is the foam gold glitter hearts. Stickers – I have added accessory stickers, puffy stickers and clear stickers and Ink Splatters I have added in gold.

I took the Feeling Fine patterned paper and cut out the gorgeous wreath from the Happiness set of free cut files. I love how the pink side of the Feeling Fine paper pops against the white of the cardstock. I then machine stitched the wreath and took a pack of the stunning floral ephemera and arranged lots of these around the wreath, I bent up some of the leaves and florals for some dimension. I trimmed down the cardstock to measure roughly 11′ x 11′ and matted the cardstock to another piece of the Feeling Fine patterned paper.

The Love You title is a cut file from the free Unforgettable set, I cut this one out from white cardstock and then hand painted the just the bottom section with some watercolour paints. I placed my photo and the layers over to the right of the wreath and added the title to the bottom left corner of the photo. I popped the title up using foam dots, I love the dimension the title gives on my page. Some of the embellishments I added to this layout include some stickers, some heart die-cuts and some gold foam hearts.

I added some journalling to one of the cards from the Fun in the Sun paper I then tucked it into the left side of the photo. Lastly I added some sprinkles of gold Heidi shine and stamped the date stamp of the date the photo was taken.
