My husband has a busy schedule these days, and so I am grateful when we can sneak away for lunch or maybe just spend a little time together running errands. He is my best friend … so doing mundane things can be fun … JUST because we are together.
The photo on this page was a quick selfie we sent our kids when we were all chatting on a group text … but I thought it would be fun to use on a page about how I love spending time with my guy.
Because I had just one photo, I decided to go with a grid design. Dividing the space up and then decorating each section is really fun!
TOGETHER IS OUR FAVORITE PLACE
I used the ADORABLE Bella Blvd. Mind Your Manners collection for this one. (Can I just mention real quick that I LOVE how happy, bright, and cheery Bella Blvd products are?! Everything I create with them immediately lifts my spirits!)
I used the cut apart cards from the Daily Details paper to make quick work of my grid. I matted my photo on a smaller-scaled patterned paper pulled from the 6×8 paper pad and then added a strip of the blue Be A Good Guest Paper across the top of the page.
To jazz up the blue strip of paper, I added the scalloped border sticker from the Fundamentals 12×12 Sticker sheet. I then used some enamel dots from my stash on top of the orange and white dots of the border sticker to give it some interesting dimension.
This card already had a house printed on it, but I wanted it to have a bit more dimension, so I used foam squares to adhere a house die cut from the Ephemera pack right on top. The “Home” phrase is also from the Ephemera pack.
I accented the green quote card with a flower and mushroom die cuts and then sprinkled on a few puffy heart stickers (McIntosh Mix and Punch Mix) on both the house card and this card as accents.
How flippin’ CUTE are the new felt pennant embellishments that Bella Blvd. have created to go with all of their new collections?! I LOVE these things! I cut a bamboo skewer in half and added two of the pennant stickers to the top, tying together the two sticks with a bit of green grosgrain ribbon from my stash.
Yes… our time together is definitely worth “celebrating” with some pennants! Woohoo!
I love the way this page came together! I forget how fun grids can be to work with!
If you ever feel overwhelmed with where to start on a page, or if you only have one photo, like I did for this page … try a grid design! It breaks the page up into bite-sized sections that you can then decorate and treat individually.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
