Hey Everyone! Thanks for joining me as I share my latest creation. This is a layout using our nephew’s fourth birthday picture. He’s five already!
I started the layout with the sketch over at Scrap The Boys and the stripe challenge from Southern Girls. Both challenges gave me a great jumping off point.
The paper I chose is the Echo Park Birthday Wishes collection. The main reason I chose this collection was that it was out on my desk from two other creations so it was handy. I did however work in elements from other paper companies to achieve the look I was going for.
I have really been working on combining collections to get things used up. For example, the letters in the paper collection were just wrong somehow. Instead of used a combination of tiny letters from Jillibean Soup and Bella Blvd’s Max collection. The stars were also Bella products that I have two sheets of and I’m trying to get used up.
I hope you like my product mash up, and that it gives you ideas of how to combine collections for a seamless layout. Until next time…stay crafty!
