Hello Spring - DT layout for Paige Evans

Hey there crafty friends,

I'm back with a new layout for the Paige Evans Design Team today!

I know I've already used this paper as background, but I can't help it, I love stripes! The colors are so gorgeous too, it's one of my most favorite papers in the Bloom Street collection!

Now, I don't usually scrap color photos because I find it hard to work with them, especially when there's blue sky or greenery on them. However, I really wanted to use this beautiful Hello Spring cut file (Design ID: 321572) and I do have many photos from our quarantine walks, of the nature awaking, everything in full bloom!

I also don't use two different size photos on a layout, but my printer is often playing tricks on me and doesn't recognize the photo on the SD card in which case I can only send the photo directly from my PC and that way I am not able to print the same smaller size as you see on the right. But I wasn't going to throw either of them away, so...they both ended up on the same layout, ha!

I backed the flowers in the cut file with a few different patterned papers that matched the colors of the background, purples and pinks. I then glued the wreath on the background, making sure I left space for the photos to be tucked under. I added foam dots to the white letters and added them back in place.

For embellishments I used a few butterflies, diecut flowers and foliage as well as some phrase stickers. Some of them I glued down with liquid glue, others with foam adhesive, so I have a bit of variation and texture.

Last but not least, I added a teeny tag behind my photo, wrote up my journaling and stamped my date. That's it!

I hope I could inspire you with today's layout in one way or another!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have an awesome day!
