"Hello Handsome" for Dlish Scraps

Hi Creative Friends,

Here today to share another layout for D-lish scraps, this one featuring my Ferris Frank the cat.  I rarely get a shot of him in the garden, so when I noticed he had a taken a moment to lie on the grass I snapped it up!!

This page started with a cut file the wonderful Katie Howard designed and shared on Facebook (thank you Katie xo) which featured all those stars running along the top edge of the page.  I combined these with some vellum stars I had from a previous Just Add Paper kit to create a page about the other handsome boy in my life!
To start, I knew I wanted the cut file star shapes to run across the top part of the page so I would need to balance out the design by adding my photo and layers across the bottom of the page. ¬†I started with some layers of yellow and teal paper as my photo mat. ¬†Once my photo position was locked in, I could add my title. ¬†To do this I’ve used Corbett Creations wood words for the “Hello” sentiment and the puffy alphabet stickers for the “handsome”. ¬†I so so love these – Did you see they now come in lower case as well?

 

Next, I’ve used a large teal star from my stash and the vellum stars from a previous¬†Just add Paper kit.¬† ¬†I’ve positioned these so that they flow towards the top of the page. ¬†I also popped one inside of one of the larger cut file shapes, it was the perfect fit! ¬†I just love the kits Amanda puts together, every month there is something new and different!!

 

I’ve also used some wood stars which were also from a¬†Just add Paper kit¬†which I’ve also placed into the cut file shapes, scattered across the page. ¬†To keep with the wood theme, I’ve used some wood beads which you will find in the¬†Clearance¬†section; worth a look anytime you are shopping in the store. ¬†AND…it wouldn’t be a Gwen page without a bow, this time I’ve used a grey one, you’ll find some here.
I’ve combined these with some wood elements from Cocoa Vanilla Studios and a Charm Creations embellishment thrown in as well to round out my layout. ¬†All that was left to do to finish the layout was add some¬†Enamel dots¬†always a perfect finishing touch.
