Elle's Studio: Today You Are Three

Yesterday on the Elle's Studio blog, I shared a recent favorite layout with a photo that I've hesitated scrapbooking since January- that was until I pulled out my Documented mini collection

This photo, taken on Lizzy's third birthday back in January, just always had me stumped. Because Lizzy was wearing fuchsia, I really didn't have any product that would go along with the photo, and almost made the photo black and white to scrapbook it. That was, until I pulled out my Documented journaling tags

The colors that I found in these journaling tags couldn't have been more perfect with this photo! By layering the Documented journaling tags with Little Moments 6" x 6" papers on a clean, white background, this layout came together so quickly! 

To mimic the balloons that Lizzy was holding in the photo, I punched circles from a Documented 3" x 4" journaling tag, the purple polka dot paper from Little Moments 6” x 6” paper stack, and a die cut from the Project Life Everyday collection. I taped bakers twine to the back before adhering them with dimensional adhesive, then tied them all together with a knot before adhering the knot to my journaling tag to keep it in place. 

I wanted to add some weight to the top and bottom of my layout, and the More Stars paper from the Sunny Days 12” x 12” collection pack was perfect to go along with the Documented supplies. To create my title, I used both the The Story Of stamp and the Documented stamp to stamp "today you are" before adding silver Thickers to finish off the layout. I kept the rest of the layout simple by adding a few acrylic, and puffy stars, and a bit of shimmer mist droplets.
