I have a layout up on the American Crafts blog today for Spotlight week!
THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE by Paige Evans
DESCRIPTION: Man I love cutting letters by hand - ransom style :)
JOURNALING SAYS: The big title is also the journaling: the best things in life are the people we love, the places we've been, and the memories made along the way.
HOW TO: Hand cut letters from all the 6x6 patterned papers in the Shimelle line as well as a few of the 12x12 papers. On a gray cardstock layout base, paint stripes of white where the letters will go, leaving a gap for photos. Stitch the letters in place. Adhere a trio of photos to the gap then embellish with a wood veneer banner cut in half and tucked under the edges, chipboard photo corners, a heart border sticker, the date stamped with black ink below the right photo, flower and heart rub ons, and a heart border rub on as shown. Drop black India ink around the layout to draw the eyes all across the page. Place color-on-color enamel dots on some of the letters.
Could the Shimelle line BE any cuter? :)
