Hey there, it’s Kathleen back with you and today I have another layout to share with you that I made with the beautiful Lindsey kit. I really have to say, I can’t get enough of the colors in this kit!
I made this layout shortly before Valentine’s Day, so I was feeling all the love. Plus, the Lindsey stamp set with the coordinating dies (yayy!) was perfect for it! I also used one of the digital cut files from Felicity Jane (available in the Silhouette store) for a focal element on my page.
After I die cut the large love file from white cardstock, I used the colorful striped paper to back the letters L, V and E and my photo for the O. In order to create some depth and dimension on the page, I used foam tape and foam dots to adhere the backed cut file. I made sure not to place any adhesives too close to the edges, so I would later be able to tuck some small embellishments behind it.
At first I planned on keeping the embellishing rather simple and just use the two layered die cut love pieces and a few flowers, but when I started with the flowers, I couldn’t seem to stop. So I finally just went with a “more is more“ kind of motto, haha. ;)
If you’ve been following me for a while and read some of my blogposts, you will know that I love to mix different textures and different kinds of embellishments. So I was really happy that there where flowers embellishments in various forms in the Lindsey kit. The silicone charms and the dimensional foam stickers are my absolute favorites!
You can also see in the detail photos, that instead of white cardstock, I used the light pink dot grid paper from this paper pack as my background and I just love the very subtle pattern this adds. To pull the rest of the colors again, I used the same patterned paper to frame the whole page that I had used for one of the love die cuts.
But what would a love-themed layout be without some hearts, right? And luckily there are plenty to choose from. I used some of the really cute small ones from the die cuts and a few of the epoxy heart stickers.
Finally, to fill some of the empty space at the bottom of the layout, I used one of the Lindsey journaling cards, cut it into a tag and adhered it with foam tape so it would run off the page.
I thought about adding some machine stitching or paint splatters (two things which are usually the finishing touches on my layouts) but I kinda liked the way it looked and didn’t feel like it needed it.
I hope you like this layout and it inspires you to create! Maybe try combining big and small die cut words together or use a photo to back part of a cut file. Whatever you choose to do, have fun! :)
