Does your sister have an awesome sister? I saw this quote and knew it would be perfect for a photo I have of my two granddaughters from Valentine’s Day last year.
I wanted to add some sparkly fun to this layout so I cut an overlay with Silver Glitter Cardstock. It’s so easy to cut using a Cricut. I select Glitter Paper for material and change the default pressure to more. Look how great it cut!
Pretty cool start to my layout, right? Then I cut the quote using Black Cardstock and placed them in the open circles.
I didn’t adhere them yet since I wasn’t sure of the placement, but I also felt like it needed something else. So I created a base for the overlay using the offset feature in Design Space. I chose a solid cardstock since I had already used two patterned papers for the base (see how I changed the base patterned paper from the floral to hearts?). The Wedding Cake Textured cardstock worked perfect for this & now it really pops.
Yes! This was a move in the right direction. Now to mat the photo, add additional embellishments and complete the page. Here’s the final look and some close ups!
Note: The silver glitter hearts came from the cut out and I used scraps from the patterned paper, silver glitter & white cardstock for the banners & tab. Stamped a heart/arrow image with Versamark ink to give a tone on tone effect and added some black splatter to complete the layout!
I love that you did your title inside the overlay…very creative!
Thank you! I knew something needed to be in those circles and the quote fit perfectly!
