Let’s welcome Becki back for her second guest post with us! Becki is a pro at mixing patterns and layering on her layouts in such an effortless way. We love how she combined so many different patterned papers from the Little Moments collection. Let’s take a look at how she did it:
Hello Elle’s Studio friends, it’s Becki here and I am back with another layout using the beautiful Little Moments collection. The thing that I scrapbook the most is the little moments we have in our home, so this collection is perfect for me. I love all of it!
The project I created for you today is a layout titled, “She Loves,” which simply documents the things my daughter loves right now. I used a couple of photos that were taken of her when we had our family photos taken last summer and matted them on two patterned papers from the 6” x 6” paper stack.
I added some typewritten strips to a 3” x 4” card from the Highlights cut-apart paper for my journaling, and placed the card to the left of my photos.
I used two papers from the Little Moments 6” x 6” paper stack to create my title, cutting the words, “She Loves” using my electronic die-cutting machine, using two contrasting fonts and patterned papers, so that the title stood out against my colorful background. After adhering my title, I outlined the edges of the die-cut words with a black pen to make it stand out a little bit more.
To balance the bold title at the base, I created a banner of at the top of the layout highlighting a few of my daughter’s favorite things, using black alphabet stickers and hearts that I fussy cut from a 3” x 4” tag in the Little Moments journaling tags.
I thought it would be fun to share a few random things about me: I love a clean house, a good book, and a really great cup of hot chocolate (in the winter) or a glass of raspberry lemonade (in the summer). Oh, and chocolate, don’t forget that I love chocolate. I also love a great find in a thrift store. My most favorite things to look for are books and dishes…a girl can never have too many dishes, or books.
My passion for scrapbooking started when I was given the assignment to create a scrapbook in my high school home economics class. I really started to be passionate about the hobby after my son was born in 2001. I have had the opportunity to work with many amazing companies and have made lifelong friends through this amazing hobby.
