I'm finding it a bit sad that this is my last post with Acorn Hollow on the blog! I just love how adorable and versatile this collection is! You can be sure that I'm going to be holding on to everything that I haven't used and you'll be seeing it again in my galleries and on my blog.
I couldn't resist this sweet picture of a friend and her daughter that was taken last Thanksgiving. I wanted to have a place for her to journal herself and her daughter, so the 5 things pocket was the perfect solution. As I was putting the page together, I thought about how cute the shapes and details on the inserts were. I just made sense for me, the ultimate shape lover, to use them in my design as a banner instead of the intended way in the envelopes.
I also layered the 5 things large shape with journaling card and topped it with a few pieces from the chipboard, paper crafting kit and even a clear cut for some added interest to my page.
Because I already had a place for journalling I used the yellow journaling card as an added embellishment and simply added the names and date. You might notice that the white flower is a clear cut shape. I chose to add a foam dot behind it and was careful to chose one that fit inside of the 'stitching'. Popping up clear cuts is a fun thing to do and they stand up beautifully to the test of time in your scrapbooks. They are very tough to bend so they are actually a really great way to add some extra dimension.
Clustered embellishing in the lower right corner completes the balance of this layout. I mixed both the paper crafting kit and the clear cuts to this corner. Another tiny detail is the pop-up center of the white flower. I used a small punch and made the center from the Button, Button! paper. You might have noticed one on the other corner, too. It's a tiny little detail and finished off the centers of my flower with the colors I wanted to add in those small spaces.
