Hey everyone, well it’s been a long time between posts for me here on the CVS blog but I am excited to be back creating and sharing projects with you all. My first layout I am sharing with you is using the new Legendary collection. I have both a boy (5) and girl (7) at home so always love when Zoe creates a masculine collection to use to document our stories.
Here is the layout that I created:
I have used white card stock as my base for this layout and framed it with the ‘Total Legend’ patterned paper. I loved the geometric Aztec design of the bside of this paper and thought it added a nice border to the whole layout. My statement piece on this page is the cut file from Cut 2 You which I backed with the ‘wild one’ ‘offbeat’ and ‘all star’ papers. This was added to the page with foam dots to create shadow and dimension against the white background. I wanted this page to feature pops of yellow and compliment the colour in my kids tops so the colours in the ‘wild one’ paper was perfect for this. Stars feature heavily in design elements for this collection so of course I had to feature the, on this page of my two little superstars.
The design of the layout is a diagonal design where the embellishments flow from the upper left corner to the bottom right creating balance. I am a lover of layers so for my portrait photo I have layered multiple patterned papers behind it to add detail and dimension. The final layer I cut fishtail ends into just for something different. That whole layered piece is also adhered to my layout using a foam sheet. To be more cost effective in my craft and because I love to add dimension to my layout I buy foam sheets in bulk packs from stores like Spotlight or Lincraft.
The star embellishments featured on this page are from a couple of different items in the collection; the ephemera pack and fussy cut from the ‘all star’ paper. To add detail to the stars I have either adhered them with a clear glue dot or added machine stitching for texture.
I always love to hand type my journaling and cut it into strips. This particular page features my kiddies love hate relationship… siblings right?!?
Thanks so much for stopping by the CVS blog today. I hope you have been inspired to create, I am so happy to be back.
Sending lots of love and prayers to you all in this scary time in our world.
