Always Order the Dessert Layout | Victoria CalvinJan 15, 2018
Hello friends! It's Victoria and I am back with my second layout using the January Felicity Jane Reagan Kit.
Recently, my daughter and I had dinner at a local Italian restaurant. After finishing a healthy portion of pasta, our waiter asked if we would like some dessert. My daughter looked up at me with her big brown eyes and before she could begin her plea for dessert, I asked our waiter if they served cannolis. My daughter squealed "YES" and I finally caved in! While enjoying our dessert, I thought about all of the times my spouse and I have declined our daughter's request for dessert when we are dinning out; sometimes without reason. But on this particular day, I took my daughter's advice, "Always order the dessert mama!
And so we did.
For this layout, I wanted to create a loose grid design with space in between the elements and bit of layering added for interest. I cut and adhered two strips from the Hearts and Stripes patterned paper to serve as an anchor for my photo. Next, I added two 3x4 photos, one printed in black and white and the other in color. This is a great way to draw attention to photos on a layout! To the top of the photos, I adhered a small tag from the Reagan die cut pack. Additionally, to the photo on the left, I added a small rose gold Felicity Jane clip for a bit of texture and dimension.
Next, I created a large title using the Mila and Reagan alphabet stickers. To the top of the title, I created a stamped die cut using the sentiment, "for the record" from the Reagan stamp set and white card stock from my stash. I then added a journaling block at the bottom of the title.
Under the black and white photo, I layered a die cut flower and label. To the label I stamped the sentiment "take the next step", again from the Reagan stamp set. Under the label rests a tiny tag for added interest. To finish this layout, I sprinkled four rubber charm hearts from the Caroline kit around the layout.
I hope you are having fun with the Reagan kit! You can watch how this layout came together in the video below.
