I'm back with another layout to share from my guest DT gig over at The Story Matters kit club. As I mentioned yesterday I loved this kit - loved, loved, loved it! One of my favorite things about the kit had to be the Basic Grey Jovial collection goodies that were included because, well, because let's face it I'm a huge Basic Grey fan. This next layout uses mostly Basic Grey with a piece here and there from some of the other patterned papers.
My boys in their holiday best - could anything be cuter? (obviously the answer is no! LOL). I love to mix up the size of my layouts and I thought an 8.5 x 11 canvas was the perfect fit for this one. My favorite paper hands down is the lumberjack plaid. It just sings of all things holiday and winter to me. I thought the colors went perfectly with my boys' clothing so I used a large piece of it on the base of my layout. The journaling breaks things up a bit, but the plaid is still a major player here and I love it! Another love of mine is the micro and mini mono stickers from Basic Grey. I buy them in multiples each time new ones are released. They are the perfect size for longer titles and look great layered one slightly on top of the other. Here's a detail image of my title work ...
And finally here's a detail image of some of my embellishments. I used some punched stars here and there and layered a few of the bigger ones with the "small details" embellies from Basic Grey.
I've got one more layout to share tomorrow (and if you like double pagers you'll definitely want to come back and check it out! wink wink). See you then!
