Hey everyone, it’s Raquel here, back on the blog today sharing my latest layout using the new Legendary collection. I always use the release of a more masculine collection to get some layouts of my little man Jack who is five years old completed.
Here is the layout that I completed:
The main design element of this layout is stars and it was created to scatter across the layout in a diagonal direction.. I used main card stock as the base of the layout and bordered the layout using the ‘Wild One’ patterned paper. The photo and focus of this layout is my little man. Over the new year period we head away as a family to a coastal town. It is just so beautiful there and we spend our days together exploring the town and in the afternoons at the beach. The kids love it so much and brings so many happy memories, ones I know that they will have and look back on as ‘good times’ when they are older.
The star elements on the page are from a few places, the ephemera pack, fussy cut from the ‘All Star’ patterned paper and also from the clear stickers. I loved the yellow in the background paper and was able to add pops of that yellow throughout the page in the form of the stars.
To create the title of the page ‘Super Awesome’ I used the clear sticker sheets. I adhered the words super and awesome into white card stock and fussy cut around them. This process was a little fiddly and did take a while but the result was so worth it. I was able to use foam adhesive dots to adhere the title and give it some dimension.
The journaling is typewritten, my usual approach, and quite short and sweet in detail. I adhered the journaling on a slight angle as that is how the title was adhered also.
I was really wanting a red patterned paper to mat my photo and luckily I noticed that the cut apart paper ‘Total Legend’ had a red 3×4 card in the design that fit my photo perfectly. That was a crafty win!
I finished the layout with some super tiny fussy cut stars from the ‘All Star’ patterned paper and some machine stitching around the border.
I hope this layout has inspired you to create today.
Take care and stay safe,
