All the Good Things, Homemade Kit

Hi Magpies, Julie back with you again today & I’m sharing 3 layouts using a homemade kit I made using a few collections that were laying around on my desk. I love mixing collections together to get a individual look to my pages.

My first layout ‘Smile’ uses a background paper from the new Vicki Boutin collection & I layered bits of Crate Papers Good Vibes with some brown Kraft, crepe paper, a tag, book paper, a pink doily & an envelope from my stash. A few bits of ripped papers at the top make a lovely area to add a cluster of Vicki Boutin leaves, a sticker from Pretty Little Studio & a embroidered pink heart, again from my stash. that beautiful chipboard bird & pompom frame is from Crate Paper good vibes. My title is an Elle’s Studio perspextive & I finished the layout with a couple of cute bows from Amy Tan.



For my 2nd layout ‘Happy Birthday’ I first added a bit of mixed media to the white cardstock background by dragging some acrylic paint across the page & stamping some frames on using black ink. I used another Crate Paper pompom frame & added clusters of Pretty Little Studio Tales & Dreams collection around both photos. Again my title comes from another Elle’s Studio perspextive & I also added those fab candles which were just perfect for this page



I choose to do my last layout ‘Wowza’ on black cardstock, I love how this really changes the look of the page & makes the colours really pop. I added a small bit of white acrylic to the top left corner, to sit my photo cluster on & splattered a bit around the page also. I punched a strip of black text paper from the new Vicki Boutin collection & added it with a handout scalloped piece from Good Vibes, hand sewing it into place. my photos sit on mats of papers from the 6×6 paper pad from Good Vibes & I clustered around them using Vicki Boutin ephemera. I added a small cluster at the bottom right & my title comes from the Good Vibes puffy word thickers, a few hand drawn white circles finish off the page.



Until next time xoxo
