My Layout for today is a really fun project and the way it came out made me so happy! I will show you today how a sequin mix intended for one theme or holiday can be used for more that just that!
My layout started with a piece of white American Crafts textured cardstock. I splattered Hot Fudge Vibez, Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz and Gold Heidi Swapp color shine on the cardstock and then trimmed 1/2" off of each side and mounted it on a piece of garnet cardstock
I was so excited to really dig into my autumn/fall stash and pulled out my Pumpkin Spice collection from Simple Stories a few years back. I matted my photo on a piece of vellum, and then used various pattered papers to make a large photo mat. I adhered the photo and mats to the upper right side of the splattered cardstock.
After I mounted the photo, some of the same papers I used as mats were cut into strips and mounted on the left edge of the white cardstock. The bits and pieces pack still had some great pieces left and I added foam tape to the back of a few and added them to the photo area and the sign piece at the bottom of the paper strips.
My title was from the letter sticker sheet and it fit exactly the way I wanted it to!!!I added some more icon pieces to the area to bring some interest to the area. Then I found the cute banner was still left and I connected the paper strips and the photo with it, LOVING the way it made them feel connected and pulled everything together.
Then, I was able to get to my sequins! I was very excited to use the new Holly Berries sequins, a Christmas mix, on my fall layout! The reds and greens are just so different and played so nice with the colors in my papers. I also mixed in some of the Autumn Joy sequin mix, the chocolate and caramel ones were a great compliment to the colors of the new sequins as well as the paper.
A few finishing touches, such a a tab on the photo mats, as well as some Tim Holtz tiny word stickers, Occasions set, and my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on some of the pieces finished this page off and I am in LOVE with the results.
I hope you enjoyed my layout today, and hope you will look at a certain theme product and try to think outside the box.
