The One with the 2Peas Milestones-Themed Layout & Video

Thursday, April 3, 2014

I have a milestones-themed Garden Girl layout and video up at Two Peas in a Bucket today! It started with the official April moodboard:

So spring-y and colorful and happy and fun and lovely. The clouds spoke to me as I just bought a Fiskars cloud punch! Perfect!

Here is what I made:

Description: A moodboard with lots and lots of colors! Woohoo! Goodness knows I love using lots of colors and patterns on my layouts! I just got a Fiskars cloud punch and was so happy to see a whole bunch of clouds on the moodboard - it's like my punch was just begging to be used and sent subliminal messages to the designers :) I punched clouds from all of the colors that matched the moodboard from 6x6 paper pads from brands like American Crafts, BasicGrey, Crate Paper, Pebbles, and Studio Calico.

Journaling says: Happy first birthday sweet Jane! It was so fun to watch you devour your cupcake and make a huge mess!

How to: Punch a cloud from all of the colors that coordinate with the moodboard from 6x6 paper pads. Arrange the clouds into piles of like color: red, pink, orange, yellow, green, aqua, blue. Starting at the top of a blue cardstock layout background, begin placing the clouds in rainbow order down the front. Use a glue dot to secure each cloud in place. Add a trio of photos to the bottom right corner. Embellish the clouds with buttons and decorative paper clips (placing like colors on like colors). Design and die cut a title from white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo machine. Adhere the title above the photos and journal with a white pen on the left side. Drop a rainbow of spray mists around the layout. Stamp the date on a darker color of cloud so it blends in a bit.

Here is the video so you can watch how I made this layout from start to finish:
