Moodboard Layout by Maija Männistö

Tuesday, September 3, 2019

Hi everyone, Maija Männistö here to share my first layout with the Truly Grateful collection! I am so happy to get my hands on it and loved creating this layout. I used the Picture Moodboard Frame cut file to create this love-filled layout.
 I took the color scheme from the photos that are taken at sunset of my darling daughter. I love how the different shades of pinks, purples, and oranges of the Truly Grateful patterned papers and embellishments perfectly match the photos! I backed most of the squares using the patterned papers from the 6x8 Paper Pad and the 2x2 Paper Pads. For three of the squares I used fussy cut elements from the 12x12 Paper Pad - the flowers, leaves, and butterflies. I love how this brings a little extra texture on the layout as I left them without a backing paper.

I wanted to treat each little square as an individual piece so I added a few embellishments on each of them using the Puffy Stickers, little phrases from the cardstock Stickers, and a few little pieces from the Puffy Phrase Stickers. For a finishing touch and a real ‘pièce de résistance,’ I used the pierced circle from the Ephemera Die Cuts and stitched it with embroidery floss. I love how this turned out and it is just the perfect addition to the layout!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
