Love Layout with Lovely Day

Well hello there crafty friends!  I hope you are having a lovely July in your neck of the woods.  The family and I just got back from a getaway in Boulder, Colorado.  We had many adventures, and now I'm so tired that I need a day off - ha!  I haven't printed out or had the chance to scrap anything from our week in Colorado, but I thought I'd share a layout from a vacation hubby and I took in 2008.  Take a look:


 I used the Scrapbook & Cards Today sketch here.

I love the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection!!  The colors are just...muah!  I printed my black and white photos in a grid using the Pic Stitch app, then printed it out as a 4x4 photo.  


Next I cut the Just Nick Studio cut file "Love Actually" from white textured cardstock.  But instead of doing white-on-white, I decided to lightly brush the cut files with CTMH Juniper ink using my ClarityStamp Stencil Brushes.  They are fun to use (you can see how I used them on this layout as well), and you don't need a lot of ink or pressure to see a subtle effect.  My strips got darker as they go down the page.  Here's a close up.

  
Here's a quick look at my journaling strips.  I used the KG Only Human font, and I matched the blue from the collection for my font color easily with a tip I've shared before.


How fun is that gold foil "love" ephemera piece?  I also find it fun to do a diagonal piece along the edges - I think it gives some extra interest to a square layout.  And I love to sew on my layouts - this one has stitching along the inside edge of the white cardstock. Enamel dots are also great to use!


I hope you have had some down time this summer (or whatever season it may be in your area!).  Don't forget to document those fun times!

Have a great week (make sure it includes chocolate ;) ),
