Hi it’s Anna here and I’m sharing a layout today documenting a moment from Easter last year – 2015.
I had made the above card with the intention to make an Easter-y card of some sort HOWEVER when I found the photo you’ll see on my layout, I knew that it would be perfect to incorporate onto that page!
To create the card was simple – I cut some grid cardstock to a 4×4″ square, painted the words ‘happy hoppy’ with watercolours, and added some ink splatters too. When dry, I used some foil letter stickers from Gossamer Blue to finish off the card with the word ‘Easter’. Easy peasy.
The process for the layout was quite simple too – I wanted it to be something I could have finished during the course of a day. All in all – probably took about 30mins to complete from start to finish. Let me walk you through…
So, the crux of the supplies are shown in the above image and then I’ve just added random embellishments as I went.
- photo – cropped to 4×4″ in size
- 12×12″ white cardstock
- 4×4 sentiment card (handmade like mine or something from an existing collection)
- Two 6×4″ patterned paper (mine were from a Studio Calico paper pad)
- Two jumbo letters (mine are cut from vellum using the WRMK letter punch tool. I have chosen the first letter of each of my girls’ names)
- Embellishments of choice ( I’ve used butterfly and bow acetate shapes from Pink Paislee ‘Bella Rouge range, starburst sequins, flair, resin flowers, and silver Color Shine for ink splatters)
1. Take the two 6×4″ pieces of patterned paper and overlap one onto the other (approx 2cm). Position and adhere these patterned papers in the middle of your white 12×12″ cardstock.
2. Add a few ink splatters to the page (I have gone with a diagonal application in top left and bottom right). Add the jumbo letters to either side of the patterned paper (I have positioned them so that the letter of the name is on the same side as that child in the photo).
3. Take your photo and the 4×4″ sentiment card and very slightly overlap vertically with each other – adhere onto centre of patterned paper block. I also cut out some rabbit ear shapes free-hand from some white cardstock and tucked them in behind the two different panels as shown in image.
4. It’s embellishment time! Firstly I’ve stapled the acetate butterfly shapes to the middle of both sides of the photo/sentiment panel.
5. Add some other embellishments of choice. Also stamp (or write) the date of moment documented.
6. To the left side (or wherever it fits best) – add some journalling.
And the page is done!!
A hippety-hoppity happy Easter to you all!
