Hey Lovelies, You know that beautiful mood board I showed you today? Well guess what! I have a BONUS video for you!! I have created a layout with my beautiful kit that coordinates perfectly with the mood board and I cant wait to share it with you.
For my first layout of 2017, I wanted to make a really girly, frilly and flowery layout. I agonised over what photo I could use that would really let this beautiful mood board shine, and it wasn't until I remembered a photo shoot my sister in law and her family did that I knew exactly what photo I wanted to use.
Tip for the day: don't be afraid to ask other people to use their photos. If it is of someone important in your life, it is worth capturing and using in your layouts. Who cares if you didn't take the photo.. It still tells a story.
This photo of my beautiful little niece Beth is just so sweet and special to my heart. I so desperately want a little girl and whenever I get the chance to buy presents, I always go to the stores and pick out the most frilly, lacy, pink girly outfits I can find for her. This dress here is one Aunty Nae picked out... I know it sounds bad, but I want kids so I can clothe them and scrapbook them.. (ps, I also want to love them like nothing else I have ever loved in this world).
The first layout using the new kit and I have busted almost each and every floral from the Maggie Holmes Open Book florals I had left. I don't mind though, they look beautiful mixed in with those Take Me Away - gold foil puffy stickers and the Maggie Holmes Gather - wreath sticker. Watch the video below to see just how I customised these stickers to suit my layout!
Oh oh oh, I forgot to mention the best part again, the cut file in the background... You all know how much I love white on white on white... Well, this cut file is from The Cut Shoppe and is one of their older floral designs. It is just so beautiful I couldn't use just one, I had to flip it and reverse it!! Love the mirrored image look in the background.
So the last little surprise I want to add in today is that I will be giving a prize away at the end of the month to one lucky girlie who participates in the HND MOODBOARD CHALLENGE! You must be a member of the HND Creatives group to take part but every month I will be giving one lucky participant a happy mail with some pretty goodies and a little letter too!!
I do hope you will join us over on the group and have some fun playing with the mood board challenge. See you all super soon with another fun layout!!
Love you guys,
