Life is Lovely Layout

I cannot tell you how many times I looked through all the bits and pieces in the Hazelwood collection, just to get to know it. Does anyone else do that with new scrapbooking supplies?

Sometimes when you love a collection so much, it’s hard to know where to start! I kept coming back to the puffy stickers though, a whole sheet of small floral puffy stickers! And that soon became my starting point in creating this layout!

I grabbed some of the softer patterned papers to pair with a touch of the black & white plaid. I then matched this with a black and white photo of my children – a rare treasure of a photo with them all actually smiling and standing still! This photo deserves to be showcased!

I added a wide (approx 3”) strip of patterned paper to the top of the layout. The plaid strip is actually a branding strip from the paper – it was just enough contrast! Here is where the flower puffy stickers come in: I placed them across the layout, tucking them just under the strip of patterned paper. I love the effect – like a beautiful floral vine!

As a base for the gorgeous gold chipboard title, I added a quick wash of mint watercolor. It really makes the title pop!

I added my photo to the right of the title. Before adhering my photo to the layout, I added several layers of soft colored patterned paper as well as washi strips and a label, tucking a tag in behind. The heart paper clip was the perfect finishing touch!

I stamped the date onto the label sticker using the new rotary stamp in this collection. The stamp does have a stunning border around the date but I simply took a baby wipe and wiped the ink off the border so I could just stamp the date onto the smaller tag!

This is the first of many projects I hope to complete using this collection! I haven’t even explored all the accessories yet! I hope Hazelwood has inspired you as much as it has inspired me!
