Happy Friday, everyone!
Today I’m guest designer with We R Memory Keepers. Have you seen my layout on their Facebook and followed the link here? If so, welcome! Good to have you! If you’re a regular reader, welcome back
I received a lovely assortment from WRMK’s “For the Record” line and was really drawn to this dark paper and the sentiment tag. The photo is of my husband, one of the first I took using the camera I had just bought. As you can see, I used WRMK’s Sew Easy – so easy! I’ve always admired those who do a lot of detail work on their pages, and using these tools made it easy to add embroidery! I layered the photo using some of the other papers and a doily (a staple of mine!).
From the Silhouette store, I got a couple of shapes from WRMK, but ended up using these butterflies on both layouts. I added some sequins to make it even more dreamy.
My second layout also features my husband. We took a two-day motorcycle trip last summer, with more than just a few ferry crossings. For the trip, we brought this classic Norwegian chocolate crackers called Kvikklunsj and he had a few strips every time we caught a ferry, while posing for me and my iPhone! The photos are not from the same crossing, but that doesn’t really matter
There is a lot going on on this page here! I used one of the WRMK papers, but cut out the print on the side. Instead I added it on top of plain white cardstock, but… I cut out the butterflies and added more of those dark papers beneath it, creating a very cool effect. I used the same paper for the Silhouette-cut title.
Once more, doilies! I got some silver and gold foil doilies at Etsy and used those to layers the photos. This made me cut out even more butterflies (well, the ones from the negative space…) and embossed those with gold embossing powder.
I didn’t want the page to be too cute, so instead of adhering the butterflies to the page, I used my mini-stapler.
I really hope you’ve enjoyed your stay on my blog today and that you’ve been inspired. Have a great weekend, everyone!
