34 | Pretty Little Studio

Hey there friends! During the months of April & May I was a Guest Designer for Pretty Little Studio, and I created projects using the XOXO Collection designed by Hello Heather. I’m now going to share those projects here over the next 8 weeks, so today I have my first layout to share with you that I created.

I started with a white cardstock background that already had my journaling printed on the right hand side. I then added a wash of light blue acrylic paint. I positioned the Cross My Heart Patterned Paper and the same design in vellum over the jounaling. I then stitched down the very edge of the patterned paper and vellum to create a flap. I’ve recently turned 34 and this layout is all about my goals for this year. I don’t mind if people read the journaling, but I didn’t want it to be on the forefront of the layout. I also had much more to say than I usually do, so hiding it under the flap was the perfect solution.

I then adhered my photos to the layout-all while keeping in mind that I need to be able to flip this layer up in order to see the journaling hidden underneath. Speaking about the photos, this is only the second time I’ve ever taken a selfie! The first time was a few years ago and I just snapped a quick selfie to text my husband a picture of my haircut. This is also the first time I’ve ever scrapbooked a photo just about me. To be honest, I feel a little vulnerable putting this out there for the world to see!

I added a journaling tag behind one of the photos as a layer, a scattering of a few teal hearts and I also added a flair button. I also positioned multiple Floral Die Cuts by the photo and also peeking out from behind the layers. I felt like the layout needed a bit more texture so I stitched down the white cardstock on the left side of the paper layers. The title “34” was cut using my Cricut on one of the patterned papers included in the 8×8 Paper Pad.

Now you can take a look at my process video to see how this layout came together. I also have an unboxing video of this collection if you’d like to take a look!

 Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me!
