We are happy to share another wonderful layout page with our Swoon collection from guest designer Stacey Michaud. But first we have a few more questions to help our fans get to know Stacey a little bit more.
LYB: What is your ‘go to’ embellishment?
SM: I would have to say chipboard. I love the dimension and interest it adds to any project.
LYB: Do you like to go to crops or prefer to scrap alone?
SM: I definitely prefer to scrap alone. I work full time and have two young children so I crave quiet time. Scrapping when they go to sleep is my favorite time to be creative, quiet and calm.
LYB: Describe your biggest scrapbooking ‘mishap’?
SM: I once applied too much mist to a page after my elements were already glued down. I hated how the background looked. I had to cut the page elements off the cardstock and start over with a new piece. It worked out, but it was a pain.
Hi everyone! I am here to share another layout with you today! It is quite obvious that the Swoon collection is designed to celebrate weddings. I decided to use it a bit differently today and go with the idea of love. There are many little elements that can fit more generic themes like the chipboard shapes and the dimensional stickers. I enjoyed fishing for those little touches that fit my layout topic.
I went in this direction because I had this adorable photo of my daughter wearing a full purple outfit. It is hard to find paper to match that much purple so I went with black, white and gray. There is a powerful trend occurring in the scrappy world that involves these neutrals to create a monochromatic feel. Swoon is perfect for that!
I used the Truly Smitten paper as my base here. It has a slight texture on the bottom. I simply added a chipboard border and a stripe of gray on gray from the Kiss the Bride sheet of paper. To connect my journaling to the photos, I used the curved cardstock die-cut and flag banner. I created the flower using the paper flower kit. I cut a piece of the decorative edge cardstock to hold the LOVE title. I finished the details with the chipboard butterfly, heart pins and “Just Because” dimensional sticker.
Have creative weekend!
