Lovely Layout by Nicolle Kramer using My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy Collection

Designed: Nicolle Kramer
Featuring: My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy Collection

I had to get a picture of my Jolie in her new outfit from her Birthday. She just turned 10. Jolie is the youngest of my 4 children. I love the color pink. The peace sign is one of my favorite symbols and of course love. Have to spread lots of it. She is just so very lovely.

Preparing and Assembling your layout:

This layout requires a lot of fussy cutting, layering and banner pennants. When assembling your layout please refer often to the photos above for placement. I also scissor distressed almost all edges of the papers.

  • Use Be Happy Flourish paper as base and distress all edges. 
  • Fussy cut half hazard around the hexagons from the Striped Pink Paper B side. I cut a shape of about the size of 10"x10". Attach to the center of the base paper.
  • Cut a 5 1/2"x5 1/2" piece from Never Forget Paper. Attach to center of Striped Pink Paper B side.
  • Attach a Be Happy Transparency to the right on the Never forget paper.
  • Cut a 4"x4" piece from Your Song Paper and attach to the left on top of the Never Forget paper and Transparency.
  • Cut photo to 3 1/2" x 5" and mat with pink Bazzill paper 1/4" larger around. Attach on top of Your Song Paper.
  • Fussy cut 6 individual hexagons from Honey Pink Paper and a cluster of 4 hexagons from same paper. Attach the cluster to top left of layout as shown above. The others you will embellish with all over the page.
  • Fussy cut 5 doilies. Four from Happy Doily paper and 1 from Your Song Paper.
  • Fussy cut images  from Be You and Never Forget papers.These will be attached at the bottom of the photo on your layout.
  • Cut 6  little 1"x1"banner pennants from Happy Doily paper B side. Punch two holes and attach them together using bakers twine. I used 3D foam tape to attach to top right of layout.
  • Cut 2 larger  3"x 2 1/2" banner pennants from  Be You paper B side.
  • Cut a 10" piece from both May Arts Ribbons , Satin Grosgrain Coral and Antique/ Olive  Ribbon. Cut  each side to look like pennants. Attach one to the other and add to layout under photo.
  • Cut 5 individual flowers from May Arts Daisy Vintage trim. Add gems to centers and embellish the page as pictured.
  • Attach a decorative clip to top right of photo. Add a decorative brad to the right of the photo.
  • Use a sketch for inspiration.
