Tags Layout by Amber Mitchell

 Hello crafty friends! Amber Mitchell here on Paige's blog today to share with you another layout using the beauti-FALL Bungalow Lane collection! After making my first ever layout a few weeks back, and realizing it's not so scary, I decided to try my hand at making another one. This time around, I used some tags to make a large cluster.

To create the background for this layout, I first took four separate patterned papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad and tore the ends of them off to create texture. Then I layered these one on top of the next, with each segment getting smaller and smaller. The statement piece of this layout are the tags, so I tried to add as much to them as I could without over-embellishing the page. First, I hand-stitched along the edges of all of the tags with embroidery thread in coordinating colors. Hand stitching is becoming a favorite element of mine to add to projects and I love the extra flair it brings to this layout. Behind the tags, I added a speckling of white acrylic paint to make things pop a bit more. I then staggered the tags across the page and added a few embellishments to each one in matching colors.

 I pulled embellishments from the Epoxy StickersEmbossed Puffy StickersChipboard StickersBird Paper Clips, and the Stitched Leaves. I added a sweet photo of my brother and my nephew from our 2019 Pumpkin Farm trip. I added this photo to the bottom of the pink tag and framed it using a polaroid frame from the Ephemera Die Cuts. I then added a sentiment from the 8-Page Sticker Book on top that reads "Sweet Memories". I also added a "grateful" title using a wooden piece from my stash. To dress this layout up and to frame the photo even further, I added large flower clusters to either side of it. I used pieces from the Floral Die Cuts and a piece from the Layered Stickers to do this, along with a mix of other embellishments like leaves and butterflies. To finish I machine stitched along all of the edges.

I had so much fun making this layout and experimenting with more techniques! Thanks so much for stopping by my post today. I'll see you next time with another fun project!
