Mandy here today to share another layout using the gorgeous new Unforgettable collection! I’ve used a lot of the beautiful bright pink on my layouts so far using this collection, so this time I decided to focus on the coral and mint colours, along with that lovely woodgrain patterned paper. I love this colour combination, and I think it works perfectly with this selfie of Eleanor and I!
I started by trimming down the Natural Beauty woodgrain patterned paper to about 9 1/4 inches square, and adhering it to the middle of my white cardstock background. I then added some machine stitching around the edge, and distressed the edges a little as well to give it some additional texture.
Next I fussy cut a couple of the floral clusters out of the Glorious patterned paper and I arranged them vertically down the page to make one large floral cluster. I chose clusters that had more of the coral and mint colours in them, and then covered any of the pink flowers with floral die cuts that matched my colour scheme. To bulk out the cluster even more, I tucked some additional die cut leaves and flowers around it, and I also added some leaves that I cut on my Cameo using the Unforgettable Cut Files.
I matted my photo with the reverse side of the Natural Beauty patterned paper, and I also tucked a 3×4″ piece that I cut out of the Pretty Bits patterned paper under the left hand side. To add a little bit more interest to the left hand side of the photo I also added a little flag banner sticker under the side of the photo and I adhered a flair button on the edge.
For my title, I once again couldn’t go past using the awesome Foam Title Stickers. I love the contrast that they add, and the scripty font is so pretty! I also added a couple of the little foam black hearts around the layout to create a visual triangle with the black title. Above the title I adhered an aqua phrase sticker which I cut in half to make it two shorter pieces rather than one long one.
To finish the layout off, I added a couple of die cut butterflies, a sprinkling of white enamel dots, some gold ink splatters, and lastly, my typed journaling strips.
Thanks so much for joining me here today! I had so much creating this layout, and I hope that you’ve been inspired by it!
