I’ve been making a point to dig into my stash lately and put a few older supplies to good use. Today I am sharing a layout with a 2017 Jillibean Soup collection called Farmhouse Stew. The warm woodgrain planks combined with the bright ‘B’ sides were perfect for this layout of my husband and I staying at the Wilderness Lodge and Disney World for our 20th wedding anniversary.
I wanted a collection that had the bright colors of Disney World, but the outdoorsy feel of the Wilderness Lodge. This Jillibean Soup collection fits the bill perfectly! I focused on using the ‘B’ sides of the paper, for the base design of the page.
After selecting the collection to work with, I shopped my stash for embellishments with the same colors. I used chipboard frames from Freckle Fawn, teal puffy phrases from Elle’s Studio, and wood veneer hearts.
I dug deep into my stash for the letters for my title. This Heidi Swapp chipboard set is one of the very first alphabet sets I ever purchased when I started scrapbooking and it’s high time I got them used up! I used to use brown A LOT when I first started scrapbooking, but now I only reach for it occasionally. The brown letters look great with the woodgrain background on this page.
I added a brown cardstock scallop across the top of the page to repeat the brown color of the chipboard letters.
My favorite part of this page was fussy-cutting the floral clusters, then adding die-cut flowers and leaves over the printed design to give it more dimension. The flower comes from the Spellbinders ‘I Dance’ set currently on the market. I added a brown-orange gem to the center of each flower as a sparkly accent.
I added a sprinkling of wood veneer hearts around my fussy-cut butterflies. The hearts work well since this is an anniversary layout.
I matted each photo on its own patterned paper, simply because I liked how each photo looked with those colors.
I used up these bright Freckled Fawn chipboard frames from my stash by cutting them in half and tucking them behind the floral clusters. I love the pop of pattern and texture they add!
This page turned out so pretty and it was so much FUN to make. I especially loved adding the die-cut flowers and leaves to the fussy-cut floral clusters to make them feel more ‘alive’ and dimensional. Flowers are ALWAYS fun to work with!
Wishing you a happy day!
