I made the following layout for a Lift Challenge LIFT40 for Soul Scrappers- it's a private chat group, but has a lot of challenges and inspiration. New members are always welcome and you can tell them that I sent you! :)
Now for the details of my layout! I used Colorbok Primary Pizazz Textured 12 x 12" Paper- green- as the background paper and K&Company Que Sera Sera Patterned 12 x 12" Paper- cut it with my Recollections Paper Trimmer in 20 rectangles to make the pattern. It was hard to put together after cutting it up, but luckily I have the entire K&Company Paper pad and there's 2 other pages of the same design to follow like when putting a puzzle back together. The photo mat is also from the Colorbok pad. I wish I would have taken a close-up picture of the flower I used, but I didn't want to pick my layout apart any more than I did! The flower was a RAK and is from Webster Pages Pinwheels Fleurettes. The title, True, is from Carta Bella Cut-Outs- True Friends- Forever Friends Cards.
A close-up of the date. The date cut-out is from Authentique Classique: Elegant Components 6 x 12" sticker sheet- it is retired, but you can view it in the gallery. I have the 6 x 6" paper pad. 5-7-16 was the date of Haylee's college graduation from UNCW.
This is a close-up of the journaling- Haylee and Nikki- I wrote it with a black ink pen so it's a little hard to see. Haylee and Nikki are true friends since high school is why I chose the word true. I also included a Hallmark Peanuts Graduation sticker- Look Out World- just so there would be something graduation to go along with the picture. I must say this is totally out of the box for me since I'm used to covering the page with embellishments! The hardest part of this layout was putting the patterned paper back in the correct design order! TFL! I'm planning on making a birthday card or 2 this afternoon so I may have another blog post by the end of the night! :) Oh, I forgot to mention the LIFT challenge is open until September 21 if you'd like to play along!
