I hope you are having a great week! I’m back with a page using the October Craft with Heart “Homegrown” kit. (Click here to find out more information about the Craft with Heart subscription kit, or contact your Close to My Heart consultant.)
I decided to create a single page layout with my supplies to document how I transitioned when my daughter went away to college. (Butterflies always make great page accents on layouts about learning and growing … Don’t you think?!)
THIS IS ME
I used the left page of one of the two page layouts for the base of my page. The strips criss-crossing the page were already printed on the paper, I simply added stitching using my sewing machine and black thread.
The used the gold grid scalloped die cut to house my photo, and then added the gray 4×6 journaling card behind the yellow grid paper as an additional paper layer.
I then combined the flowers and butterflies from both of the layout kits onto this page in a diagonal line across the design.
The title stickers for this page were “This is Us.” I ommitted the word “us” and added the word “Me” using chipboard letters from my stash (these are some oldies-but-goodies by BasicGrey).
For additional dimension, I added layered punched flowers and buttons on top of the flower die cuts.
The page had black spray mist already printed on the background paper, but I added more mist in a light gray along the diagonal line of butterflies and flowers to tie everything together.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
