Start to Finish #4: Happy

Yesterday I shared with you one of the 8 layouts that I created this past weekend. Today, I am going to be sharing with you another one that I entitled Happy.

I started this layout by finding inspiration over at 2Peas. I came across the layout below by Jenny Evans and fell in love with it.

I started with a base of 12″ patterned paper from the Basic Grey Kioshi Collection that I had in my stash. I then trimmed down the yellow paper to be 8″ x 10″. I also cut an 8″ x 1 1/2″ strip of the blue from the collection so that I could add the punched border along the edge. The top patterned paper was cut to 7″ x 8″. I inked the edges of each piece with coordinating Distress Inks {Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord}.

I also backed each photo with corresponding cardstock mats to be able to stand out from each other. The journaling spot was leftover from my Making Memories Ledger 8×8 Paper Pad that is no longer in production. The rosette was simply made by cutting a piece teal cardstock down to 1 1/2″ and punching the edge with a Martha Stewart punch. I then scored it with my Martha Stewart scoring board at each 1/4″ before putting it together. The black button was tied on with some Caribbean Twine from The Twinery before being adhered with Glossy Accents. I didn’t think that it was quite balanced or done so I added the brads in the top right corner. The Thickers that I used are an older font called Pajamas. I had never used them but always had them in my stash.

I would love to see your work if you are so inspired by my layouts. I have started a Pinterest Board for all of my Start to Finish Layouts. I am linking the original inspiration and the final layout. I do hope that you will join me. 🙂
