Mandy here today to share another layout using the GORGEOUS new Unforgettable collection! I’m totally loving the beautiful butterflies and the florals in this collection, and I knew that I wanted to feature them on this page! I documented a photo of my eldest daughter Abigail taken earlier this year, and I used this layout as an opportunity to journal about how proud I am of her.
I started by trimming down my white cardstock background and matting it firstly with the Natural Beauty patterned paper (reverse side), then with the Unscripted paper (reverse side). I also added some machine stitching around the white cardstock to give the layout some texture.
Next I matted my photo with one of the papers from the 6×8 Paper Stack, and then I created a pretty floral cluster to the right of the photo. I used one of the larger floral die cuts as the base for the cluster, and then I tucked some extra leaves and smaller flowers into it. I finished it off with some more leaves which I cut out of white cardstock using the beautiful new Unforgettable Cut Files. These are designed by our very own design team member Gwen Wruck, and they’re available to download for FREE here.
As I said, I knew that I wanted to feature those gorgeous butterflies from the collection on this layout. I cut the larger ones out of the Pretty Bits patterned paper and the smaller ones were from the Lacewing paper. I arranged them so that they look like they’re floating from the bottom right up to the top left, giving the layout a diagonal flow. I adhered them with glue just in the middle, so that their wings would lift off the page, giving them lots of dimension.
I also created another smaller floral cluster in the bottom right hand corner of the page. Once again I used a combination of die cuts, along with leaves from the Unforgettable cut file set.
I’m LOVING the addition of the Foam Title Stickers in this collection! They make it so easy to add a title to your layout, and the scripty font is really pretty! Plus I love the contrast that the black adds against the bright colours!
I finished the layout off by adding some typed journaling strips, a few little word stickers, and a couple of the little hearts included in the Foam Title Stickers pack.
Thanks so much for joining me here on the blog today! I hope that you’ve been inspired by my layout! I’ll be back later in the month to share some more inspiration with you!
