Scraptastic Club Skinny Love: Not Just a Pretty Face

Remember that on my last post, I said that I created two layouts in one day? That's how much I love the Skinny Love kits from Scraptastic Club and today I'm here to share the second layout with you. 

Because I love these kits so much, this layout came together quite easily. The photo, taken only a few days ago, was just screaming to be paired with the Skinny Love stamp sentiment, "not just a pretty face," as my daughter, at the age of two, picked up a National Geographic in Whole Foods and started browsing. Taking cues from the colors in my photo, I decided on a yellow and teal color scheme, with black and brown neutrals.  The patterned papers, floral from Crate Paper and the butterfly print a Scraptastic exclusive, topped my layout. A yellow exclusive journaling tag from the add-on, along with the die-cut tag which houses my title, surrounded my photo on the bottom, while the exclusive "the bestest" die-cut topped it.

Now for my favorite part - the embellishment - which flanked my photo on the right and left sides. I layered a printable heart circle on top of the Scraptastic exclusive cork ribbon piece and added a puffy "E," my daughter's first initial. I tucked the Crate Paper "today" tag just behind my photo and layered it on top of the ribbon. To the right of my journaling tag, I added the Studio Calico washi tape and topped with a Crate Paper puffy heart and mini letter "A." A felt and acrylic heart and a few gold chipboard dots and a splatter of black mist finished off the right side.

On the left side, I tucked a date tag under my photo at the top. I then used the Studio Calico washi strip again, and topped it with an exclusive "bright" cork circle, then a puffy "2" from the Crate Paper Wonder collection. On my title tag, I tied a thick piece of baker's twine.

I have to say that this layout, in terms of the photo, the product and colors, may just be my favorite of the entire year, and it was created in about 40 minutes. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend. Make some memories to document!
