Hey y’all! Laura back again with a super sweet baby layout featuring the new holiday themed Joyful collection. I love to challenge myself to scrap outside the theme as much as possible to stretch my creativity and get the most of my favourite collections. One of the inspirations for this layout was the adorable animal icons on the Magical Moments patterned paper. I just had to fussy cut them out and create a mobile with them above these sweet photos of my daughter cuddled up with me. To create the hanging lines, I simply free-handed some loops and then hand-stitched them with floss.
I added several fabric stars and wood buttons amid the hanging animals to fill in the gaps and give the impression of a sky. Both the mobile and the night sky are imagery that fits these sleeping baby photos perfectly and really help to set the mood for the overall page. On the top left of the photo, I pulled in a few stickers from 6×12 sticker sheet as well as a scattering of these puffy stars from the puffy titles. Love the pop of gold in this collection, it’s just the perfect addition to the soft color tones.
Along the right and left side of my photos, I added a cluster of florals that I fussy cut from the A5 paper stack, including these teeny tiny ones that I use to add details around the outside edge. To add a bit of definition to this page, I outlined the main photo mat with a pen. The finishing touches to this lovely layout was a puffy gold title, journaling, and splatters. Overall, I think I captured the soft, sleepy mood perfectly with the Joyful collection and I can’t wait to see what other photos I can scrap with it!
I hope this layout inspires you to scrap outside the theme too! If you’d like to see how Our Memories came together, check out the process video below.
