I used the Fancy Pants Be Loved line from 2013. I am loving the trend of hand drawing letters onto patterned paper and then cutting them out. I roughly drew the letters of my daughter's name in five different papers and then went over most of the background with white gesso. I added some gelatos in teal and pink and then added some gold Color Shine splatters. Next, I machine stitched over each letter with different colored thread.
These soft colors are just gorgeous together...and the gold really accents it all. I added gold stitching in various places, and I also added gold Color Shine to three of the smaller fussy cut hearts. I pulled some word and phrase stickers from my stash to add around the page.
My "something small" was the tiny title. I used the alpha stickers from the collection. I also added some tissue paper behind the photos as well as some tangled thread.
I fussy cut these chevron arrows from one of the 12x12 patterned papers and then stitched through them. I brought in some grey and white striped washi tape from my stash to add a bit of interest to the sides of the photos.
Here's another look at the fussy cutting and beautiful gold stitching. I love mixing up the straight and zig zag stitching.
The last thing I added to the layout was flair. I gave them each a little gold next to sit in. I love doing this to add texture, interest and a pop of color.
You can check out my process video if you'd like to see how I put this page together from start to finish. I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
