So let me share with you my first project- a layout I created with the London Kit. Anyone who knows me, knows I love the color yellow so when I opened my box I literally squealed with joy! I love that I was able to add little touches of yellow throughout my layout.
I started with the white and grey spot pattern paper and then trimmed about two inches from the side and turned it over to reveal the soft pink and white stripes which I then adhered to the edge of my layout. I then trimmed about an inch from the yellow pattern paper and adhered it also too the back of the layout to create my background. I laid down my photo and embellishments , marked with a pencil where they were then removed the pieces and used my sewing machine to create a border for my elements
I then used two of the pieces from the 4x6 cut apart sheet to form part of my journaling and title. I ran the blue journaling piece through my typewriter to add my journaling. I adhered my photo on three sides so I could use it as a place to tuck my journalling card into.
I added the Happy chipboard shape to the side of my photo then fussy cut the bow from the cut apart sheet. I trimmed off the bow ends and added them flat onto my page and then adhered the main part of the bow with pop dots for dimension.
To complete my layout I added some messy stamping with the FJ London stamp set, I love the subtle texture that creates without the bulk.
