Love this Moment Layout

It was back to work for me a couple weeks ago and I forgot or didn't realize how tired I'd be at the end of the night - between pumping, bottle washing, and bagging/freezing milk - that blogging (especially about crafting) hasn't been the highest priority. Being able to nurse is a great thing and I'm glad I'm able to do it without any significant challenges, but it also feels like a ball and chain sometimes.

I did this layout of pictures of Evie from our photo shoot last October while I was still on maternity leave. The letterpress 12x12 paper is one I've had for a while. From maybe . . . 2007 or 2008ish? I think it is by Autumn Leaves. The rest of the supplies are mostly all Pinkfresh Studio.

I used Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist to watercolor a strip down the left side. The "love" words were die cut from pink watercolored cardstock, vellum, and gold acrylic painted cardstock. I also used gold acrylic paint around the edges of the watercolor print card. The "this moment" phrase was dabbed onto the layout with the ink blending tool and Distress Ink over a stencil. I was actually pleasantly surprised at how crisp the image turned out and also wondered to myself why I hadn't tried it sooner (answer: I was afraid it wouldn't turn out well).

SUPPLIES:

Paper: Autumn Leaves
Embellishments: Pinkfresh Studio
Tools: Cuttlebug; Zig markers
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Walnut Gold
Other: mt washi tape

  1. I agree with you about blogging not being a priority. I've been putting in overtime the last couple of weeks at work because we're short of people, so a 50 hours work week is pretty exhausting and blogging was the last thing on my mind too.

    Such a beautiful layout! I love the gold and pink. It makes a pretty combo. I also love the shine from the gold mist on the left side with all the "love" words floating down. Your daughter is absolutely cute! Love the sweet photos of her holding a single flower. Too sweet and too cute!!! What more can I say? Have a wonderful weekend!
