Hey guys, I’m back today with a couple of traveler’s notebook layouts I recently created.
I picked up some of the More Than Words line from Cocoa Vanilla when I was last in the Love is in the Details store and I finally got a chance to play with it. More of this line is soon coming into the store so be watching for Lori to let you know about it’s arrival! Here’s a sample of what it looks like.
It’s a collection suitable for many themes, but especially baby girl pages like I’m sharing today. It includes die cuts (sooo many cute die cuts!), chipboard shapes, puffy stickers and more. As well, I used one of the layered chipboard phrases I designed last summer, “you so cute”. I painted it with plain white craft paint, then stamped it all over with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a lovely gloss. I combined the phrase with pink polka dot chipboard alphabet letters from the Lullaby Girl line from Pebbles.
I framed the photo (of our sweet Ramona babe) with a frame die cut from fun foam. All the puffy stickers and die cut phrases and floral images are from the More Than Words collection.
Besides the Cocoa Vanilla line, I’ve included a blue tag and some gold polka dot pink washi tape from my stash.
Next up, is a layout that uses more of the More Than Words paper and embellishments.
I love that it’s so versatile for baby boy pages too.
Besides the larger papers from the line, I’ve included scraps from my stash to mat the photo – I always love when a piece is perfect for a time like this and totally justifies my having “stashed” it for so long! I used the phrase strips from the sticker sheet and added hand written journaling below.
I’ve layered up die cuts, tags and a chipboard butterfly from the collection to bump against the bottom edge of the layout. The strip of black and white washi tape was too wide and visually heavy for this small size of page layout, so I cut it in half with a wonky scissor line down the center and added it below the patterned paper on top, to help delineate the separation between top and bottom, and create a visual anchor point for the photo to sit on.
It will be a while before I tire of this paper line, but happily I have lots more baby photos and feelings to document. Thanks for stopping by today and I’ll see you soon!
