A Lovely Layered Layout

Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying all the inspiration so far this week using the brand new collection from Dear Lizzy ‘Lovely Day’! There are so many beautiful colors in this collection but for my layout today, I chose to focus on just a few: yellow, mint and black & white. Oh – with a touch of that gorgeous rose gold too!


I am such a sucker for black and white patterns so I fell in love with the gorgeous ‘Dreamer’ paper with the large black brush lettering! I added a large panel of it to my white background so you can see a lot of the words.

Then I got to work creating my main feature in the centre of the layout.


Starting with a square, black and white photo of my beautiful daughter, I added layers of patterned paper behind it with the mint and yellow patterned papers that I pulled from the collection. I then tucked in a few of the die cut shapes for interest such as the flowers and a couple of tags and tickets.


The rose gold word ‘love’ was all I needed for my title – I added it on pop dots for extra dimension. I also added one of the flags to the right of my photo to balance out that very small touch of dark blue and pink/red.


I have to introduce you to the amazing washi tape in this collection: it’s quite wide and just black and white all ready for you to add color with markers or pencils! I love how you can customize it so I couldn’t resist adding some onto my layout!


I have only just begun to discover all the inspiring goodies that are in this collection! My mind is already ticking with ideas for more projects using all the gorgeous and whimsical patterns, icons and colors! Stay tuned!
