Oh, Hello layout

Hi everyone!  Emma here to share another page I created with the beautiful Lovely Day collection!  I honestly could not pick one favourite from Lovely Day but I can confess I think the layered stickers are just perfect and were the inspiration for this page!  I’m also loving all the gorgeous patterned paper.  I actually started this page without a set photo/theme in mind – I was just creating for the sake of creating and it was wonderful!

Here is the page I finished up with:

The basis of my design is set around the Beep, Beep paper.  How cute is the design?!  I thought the trees and cars would look fun as a layered sticker too so I cut the shapes out using a few of my trusty circle punches (2 inch, 1 inch, ¾ inch) and placed them around my page.  Then I fussy cut a few of the same designs (because there are multiples on the paper) and stuck them on top of the same shape using foam dots.

For contrast I went with the colour yellow.  I love yellow; it’s my happy colour so I used that to add a bit more colour (given the pattern paper is mostly white on white).  The larger circles are the flower pattern (d/s paper, XXX) and the smaller circles are from the 6×6 paper pad.

I machine stitched around a few of the larger circles (because I have to have stitching on my pages)…circles are tricky for me on the machine, they’re never quite right, haha.  But I don’t mind it at all; fits in with my style 🙂

The last process for me on this page was actually picking a photo.  So weird I know!  Usually I’ve got some idea of what photo I plan to use on a page when I start creating; even if I change photo, usually I know if the page is about Zack or Makayla or whatever else, but this time around I really had no set theme!  Was a fun change from the “norm”.  I cut my photo out using my 2 inch circle punch so it matched with all the other circles on my page (I also set my journaling the same way, I just typed it up in Photoshop and printed it out on cardstock and cut it out using a punch also).

I had so much fun making this page.  I think partly because I had no theme/story/photo in mind when starting it; I just knew I loved the layered stickers and I wanted to create more 😉

Thanks for joining me on the blog today, I hope it’s inspired you to try it for yourself.  There are so many other cute paper designs that would look just as fun doing this too  (…the bikes or the foxes!!!)

Take care, Em xo
