Collection Disconnection | Little by Little #3 - Sweet Friendship

Hello again! After a few weeks of pure craziness, I'm back with a new layout using the American Crafts Little by Little collection designed by Shimelle Laine. Today's layout needed to be simple and quick for me to create because I had less than an hour! In times like these, I sometimes like to let the products help me make quick decisions and guide my design choices.

I chose a background paper with a pre-printed design on one edge. It serves wonderfully as an anchor point for my photo and I decided to create a centered layout design. After I trimmed the branding strip, I just added it back onto my background and I love the way it mimics the lines at the top.

I added a title and kept it simple by telling myself I had to choose something from the words available on the patterned paper. "Sweet Friendship" ended up being perfect and hand-cutting these letters is the thing that took me the longest on this layout!

I added my journaling with a white pen and then embellished very simply around the title and at the top and bottom of the page.

A bit of gold color shine splatters completed this quick and easy layout! You can see it all come together in the process video here:

I've linked to all available supplies below and don't forget to check out the other layouts/videos in this series over on my YouTube channel. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!!
