Home is Where the Heart is Layout | Mandy MelvilleAug 30, 2018
Mandy here with you today to share a layout using the beautiful Jeana kit! I’m loving creating with this kit – the colours are fresh and pretty, and the florals are so gorgeous! For this layout I used mainly the greens, yellows and peachy pinks from the collection. I also wanted to focus on the home/family theme in the kit, so I decided to document a photo of me with my three kids, taken on Mother’s Day earlier this year.
I started my layout off by creating some layers behind my photo using patterned papers from the collection. I also added a doily from my stash, just to soften the layers a little, and I adhered the photo with craft foam to give it some extra dimension. You can also see here that I added a couple of die cuts on the bottom right hand corner of the photo to create a little cluster.
I added my title to the right of the photo, using a combination of different FJ alphabet stickers. (You might have noticed that the creative team have all been focusing on alphabets this week!). I used a puffy sticker from the Jeana kit, as well as black foam alphabet stickers from the Joy kit, and the Willow pink-ish puffy alphabets. I love mixing different fonts to create my titles because I think it adds lots of interest! Underneath the title I added my strips of typed journaling.
The florals in this collection are so so pretty, and I couldn’t resist using the floral patterned paper to do some fussy cutting! I added one of the floral clusters at the bottom of the page, and another on the right. Across the bottom of the page I adhered two of the branding strips that I trimmed off the patterned papers, and I also added a scalloped branding strip across the top.
To finish the layout off, I added a few of the chipboard hearts down the right hand side of the page. I also added some machine stitching across the top and bottom of the layout, which give the page some nice texture.
Thanks so much for joining me here today! I hope that you enjoyed taking a look at my layout, and hopefully I’ve given you some inspiration!
