The One with the 2Peas Children-Themed Layout

Saturday, March 8, 2014

I have a children-themed "inspired" Garden Girl layout up at Two Peas in a Bucket! It started with the official March moodboard:

Lovely, right? So many ways it can be interpreted and used on layouts!

Then I printed and die cut the amazing files by Lisa Dickinson and Wilna Furstenburg.
Neeeeeext I pulled products from my stash that coordinated and picked a couple of cute photos of my kids to scrap.
And then, bada-bing, bada-boom, this is what I made!:

Description: Honestly I was a bit intimidated by the moodboard at first! Green? Blue? Pink? Not very many colors, and goodness knows I love lots of color! Although really, I could add more colors if I wanted, so it's not THAT big o' deal. But I like a good challenge and wanted to stick to the moodboard as much as possible, so I started to pull green/blue/pink patterned papers in different tints/tones/shades and I actually really ended up loving the colors! Funny how that worked :) The lovely leaf die cuts by Wilna made fun photo backgrounds and pops of Lisa's printables finished it up!

Journaling says: As my mom, your grandma, used to always say: How did I get so lucky to have the best son and daughter in the entire world?! I must have done something good in heaven to deserve you two sweet angels! I love every day isn't sunshine and roses from sun up to sun down, but I wouldn't trade a single second because I love you two so much!

How to: Trim 3/4 x 2" pieces from patterned papers then stagger them across a light blue cardstock background. Sew diagonally down the paper strips. Die cut leaves from white cardstock. Layer two photos, a pink printed die cut, an aqua "lucky" printed die cut, an ampersand printed die cut, and the die cut leaves on the bottom of the layout. Place Thickers on the photos to make the names of the kids in the pics. Hand stitch through the ampersand using white floss. Scatter buttons around the photos. Stamp the date and add "ME" mini alphabet stickers on the "lucky" card to finish the title. Journal in three of the open spaces on the background using a white pen. Drop light blue spray mist around the layout to finish.
