Anyway...I've been lamenting the fact that she is growing up and trying to keep her little. I told you that she's been sick right? I have been making good use of the sick girl cuddle. :) I came across an older photo of the two of us that I had never scrapbooked and figured that it was about time. Plus I wanted to use some the Carta Bella Wildflower collection that I just got in the mail...
I seriously LOVE the color combo of the Wildflower collection and it even includes a version of the Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid!
I found that the Maggie Holmes Flea Market collection pairs with it nicely and I layered some chipboard letter stickers on top of some hemp twine for my title.
I created a few layered clusters using some floral stickers from Wildflower, some gold foil stickers from Flea Market, more of that hemp, and a few enamel dots + a dark wooden heart from Studio Calico.
I created a kind-of "messy mat" for my photo with a few patterned papers from Wildflower and Dear Lizzy's Polka Dot Party. I added a tab to each paper layer and I really like the way they look stacked like that!
Here is that other cluster I was talking about. You can see that I made what looks like a little hemp pretzel or something to layer beneath that two peas exclusive flair badge. This is a technique that I learned from a Glitter Girl video and I have been using it ever since!
I created a short little video to show you how I did it. Enjoy!
