Capture Hope

One of my greatest scrapbooking designers is by far Corrie Jones. Her work is beyond awesome. Each month she completes a layout about herself and what she is feeling. This month I wanted to do the same. Better this month than any of the previous 5! :)

I had fun with this layout and actually completed it pretty quickly. I started with the star background that I cut with my Cameo. The cut file came from the Silhouette store. I used all Studio Calico Print Shop papers for this layout and didn't want to use one of the the 12x12 sheets as the full background so I went to my old stash of DCWV paper pads and found one that matched. I really need to dig into those more often! I am even thinking about using the back of some of them, which is white, to get using them! 


I put different papers from the 6x6 pad behind all of the different sized stars. I layered the leftover pieces behind my photo and found the black and white word paper and used my exacto knife to cut out the word "capture" from the paper. I wrote 5 different facts/feelings about me right now and added some other fun embellishments such as Freckled Fawn stars, new stamps from Elle's Studio, sequins, and those older mistable hearts from Pink Paislee.


I am loving the new "Love You More" stamp set by Elle's Studio! 


Thanks for checking out my layout and your comments. Have a wonderful day!
