love you

Hey everyone!  I wanted to share another layout I created as the September guest designer for Studio AE.  For this particular layout not only did I use the September Studio AE stamp set called "Family Is by Ali Edwards" but I also used quite a few of my other Technique Tuesday stamps sets to create a fun and colorful stamped background paper. 


This is my little nephew Kian - isn't he a doll?  To create the background I simply gathered lots of my favorite Technique Tuesday stamps and several different colors of ink.  And then I went to work!  I would love to say there was some great method to this by I honestly just kept filling in and switching stamps as I went along.  I love the "grafitti" look to my background and how you can read the different words and phrases popping out here and there along the edge. 


I kept the rest of the layout pretty simple.  I used papers and stickers from Echo Park - they have some of the best tone on tone patterns around and they are just perfect to use for just a subtle bit of detail.  I printed my journaling on a journaling card (from Echo Park) and added a final stamp (from "Love Always Wins by Ali Edwards" stamp set) for my title.   


Thanks so much for stopping by!  :)

Hi! I love your work - love this layout SO MUCH. I have kind of a crazy question. I made a card with a very similar banner recently. I wanted it to have a bow at each end, as yours does...but I couldn't figure out how to tie a bow on both sides. So I threaded the twine through and just tied it on one side but I didn't love the look as much. So did you do that and then tie another bow onto the opposite side with an extra piece? I always see banners hung with a bow on each end but can't figure out how to make that work. Does that make sense? Please explain! Thanks!!!
