The other day I was stomping home from the store in snow + slush and thought "when I get home I'm going to make a layout! And it's going to be colorful!" So I made two. It's been a long time since I shared a layout in a while. I've been making them for classes and other secret projects but being miserable walking in the cold inspired me to just get home and do something fun for me.
My Mon Ami line is now at Two Peas in a Bucket and I used to put together the layout with Laura + me. I punched out lots of those circles from the Rue paper to made a fun patterned on the background then layered over top of it, as always tend to do. White sequins went into the centers of the circles. I added in leaves from the Chez Moi paper and lots of Mon Ami stickers.
Ahhh yellow in the middle of this gray winter was fun to play with. If you've been making stuff with the Mon Ami line I would love to see it!
I could fill an album with layouts just about the Ace Hotel. It's so photogenic and fun to scrapbook. I used the stamps from my Hello World kit and the heart stamp to create the background. The inks are my new favorites from Mama Elephant. I haven't used pigment inks in a long time and these are so vibrant – Ocean and Winter here, Lollipop on the Laura layout.
I hope that you're happy to see some layouts back in action here on the blog… more to come soon!
