We loved welcoming Elizabeth Heinz to the blog last week, where she shared how she’s documenting her summertime favorites, and today she’s been inspired by a shape in our June kit and extras to create a lovely 6″ x 12″ layout about best friends. Let’s take a look!
Hello friends. I’m back to share my second project using all kinds of goodies from the Elle’s Studio June release, a 6″ x 12″ insert that will be placed into my 2019 pocket page album!
Supplies | June 2019 Kit, Summer Phrase Stickers, Hazel Alphabet Stickers – White, Summer Puffy Stickers, Wood Veneer Stars, Best Friends Acrylic, Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Summertime Stamp, Mini Dated Stamp
My design was inspired by the cute hexagon shapes included in the June 2019 Kit die cuts. Since I needed them to be larger, I placed one on my copy machine and created a template. Then, I simply outlined it with pencil on my background to build my pattern. (Pretty old school but effective!)
Once I was happy with my pattern, the fun began. I flipped through the Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack to find a variety of colors and prints to use.
I knew that I would cut three hexagons in half to hold my journaling. I almost always do things in ODD numbers. After printing my words on white cardstock, I reassembled the shape. I added a white Hazel Alphabet Stickers numbers and stamped black stitching.
I used the whole hexagons to add embellishments, including Wood Veneer Stars, Summer Phrase Stickers, Summertime Stamp and Summer Puffy Stickers. Then, I used dimensional tape to pop up three of them for added interest.
Next, I added the 4″ x 6″ photo of my son, Joshua and his girlfriend, Emma. On the left of the photo, I created a flag to hold the date. On the right, I added a pink puffy heart sticker from the Summer Puffy Stickers.
I hope I provided some insight and inspiration. Happy crafting!
