Welcome back, lovelies!!
I am back one more time to share the last of my projects that I created this month for the Larkindesign Creative Team. I’m sure you have noticed that this month I got carried away crafting with these pretty digitals.
Well, I couldn’t stop until I created a 12×12 layout, of course! I can’t contain it any longer, so here it is:
I just LOOOVE everything about this layout! If you want to know how I created it and what sparked my creativity, keep reading!
So, many of you probably know by now that last year Crate Paper came out with one of the most beautiful collections I’d ever seen called Carousel. This collection was all about fairs, carnivals, and plain old pastel circus fun. I have got every piece of this collection in my stash, but have been intentionally hoarding it, haha. I really think that it’s just too pretty to use, but I finally had the courage to bust out a few more pieces to mix in with this month’s Grow Deeper Roots collection.
For the layout, I started off by using a mix of two pink patterned papers from the past two collections Theresa Moxley has designed. One of them had been trimmed for another project, and I was left with some different sized strips of paper, and I also had about a 6 by 5 sheet of the diamonds patterned paper.
I wasn’t sure where I was going with this layout, so I started by placing them in the middle of my blank page and loved how I put them in a small to large order from top to bottom. This created a beautiful pink base for the rest of my layout.
I then brought out this photograph of me and my son on a very special day: my very first mother’s day with a walking toddler.
I was ecstatic to find that this photo went so well with both the Carousel and Grow Deeper Roots collections.
I then used all kinds of bits of ephemera pieces from each collection and basically picked out a bit of the purple and teal embelishments. I also brought in some of the Larkindesgin florals that I Minc’d in last month’s layout.
I created a total of three clusters around my photo to give your eyes spots to rest. My favorite part of all is how my photo’s focus is in the middle bottom, where I put the glitter frame. BUT, the photo itself still shows in the background and you can see the gorgeous Ferris wheel in the background.
The top right cluster perfectly finished off my “festival” theme by adding that black and white tent plus a mix of both ephemera collections, like I mentioned before. I also brought out the gorgeous turquoise puffy stickers and sprinkled the little stars all throughout.
So, that was how I ended up with this fun Carnival type layout.
My favorite part was how I was able to perfectly mix in the gorgeous colors of the Larkindesign collections into this stunning Crate Paper collection.
I hope that you have enjoyed this 12×12 scrapbook layout share!
I will be back very soon to share more scrappy inspiration with you all.
As always, thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you in my next post, stay crafty!
