Life isn’t just for documenting the serious moments, and today Mary-Ann Maldonado is showing just how awesome it can be to record the funny ones, too, using our April kit and extras! Let’s see what she created!
Hey there! Do you ever think to yourself, ‘how can that possibly be?’ Well, my mom and I had a recent discussion after getting purple blueberry ice cream. We both know that blueberries can be blue, but mostly they are purple. So, we decided they shouldn’t be called blueberries. Maybe purple berries! Who came up with the work pajamas? Or scrumptious? I could go on. It would take all day and with all the amazing goodies in the April Kit and add-ons, we don’t have time for that, do we?!
Supplies | April 2019 Kit, April 2019 Digital Cut File, Days of the Week Phrase Stickers, Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, Butterflies and Flowers Puffy Stickers, Go See Do Acrylic, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – Outline, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die, Large Jane Number Stamp, Large Jane Number Metal Die, Family Fun 12 x 12 Paper Collection, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
I knew I wanted to create a play on colors with the blue and purple, so I made sure to layer both colors every time I used them. Behind the Large Jane Alphabet words, around the entire layout as a base, and under the large heart Cut file.
I only wanted to use the heart part of the “mom” heart die cut file, so I released the compound path and only used the outer part of the heart, releasing it from the text on the inside. I cut the heart three times, decreasing in size by 1/4″ each time.
Along with the blue and purple, I added the beautiful raspberry color that is found throughout the April Kit. The Butterflies and Flowers Puffy Stickers had the cutest florals, so I had to add them to the embellishment cluster at the bottom of my page. Adding this lead me to include the 3″ x 4″ floral tag from the April Kit.
I trimmed the floral tag and tucked it in behind my photo. Then I layered this with the Days of the Week Phrase Stickers for a little more detail to my story. Not only does my title tell the story, but I added journaling to the top left corner of the layout to remember the specifics of the moment for years to come.
