We begin today's layout party with this gorgeous French Country LO by Romy. This LO is definitely a celebration of the seasons. The rich colors of French Country are just perfect for Fall photos! You can see how Romy used pretty paper layering, fussy cut elements and lovely embellishments to create a joyful scene. Graphic 45 Stamped Metal Brads look perfect at the center of those beautiful sunflowers! This is definitely the kind of LO that you could cherish for a lifetime. Here is what Romy had to say about it.
"As soon as I saw the gorgeous ‘French Country’ papers, I knew they would be perfect for scrapping this photo. I decided to print my photo in a rather large size, so it would be the main focus of attention on my lay-out. I further decorated my lay-out with lots of fussy cut sunflowers and some cut out butterflies as well. French Country just makes it really easy to create something pretty and summery" -Romy
Holiday photos are so incredibly special. They capture all the joy and enchantment of the season. What better way to bring your precious memories to life than with a beautiful layout featuring our new 12 Days of Christmas collection! It contains such rich colors and gorgeous vintage-inspired designs that perfectly capture the holiday spirit. Here is Annette's darling 12 Days of Christmas LO! You can see how perfectly she blended the 12 Days of Christmas papers with fussy cut elements and pretty embellishments to bring this adorable photo to life. Here is what she had to say about it!
"I adore the 12 Days of Christmas collection by Graphic 45 because of the deep warm colors, the beautiful vintage imagery, and the vast possibilities with the 12 Days theme. This photo of my daughter was taken many years ago when she was young, sitting with my sister’s dog Nicky. It was a sweet moment that I’m glad I captured. My daughter looked extra sweet with her hair curled and her pretty Christmas outfit and matching headband. It’s gives me great JOY to look back at this time in her life. The layout is a fun mixture of layers and textures, with some of the beautiful images fussy-cut from the papers adorning the upper right and lower left corners. I think this really shows off the gorgeous papers in this collection." -Annette

"In this project, I wanted to show you how versatile the new Mother Goose paper collection can be. It’s not just for children’s projects (although I have to say I’ve had a BLAST creating projects for my little boys with this paper line!) I created this page to commemorate a photo that was taken of me in the courtyard at Castello di Amorosa winery in Napa, California. The color palette of the Mother Good papers compliment the flowers behind me in the photo very nicely!" -Arlene
