A layout with an old childhood photo

A layout with an old childhood photo

Hi, everyone. It's Eunyoung here. Today I'm sharing a layout with an old childhood photo. I cleaned up utility room, I found some my childhood photos.

This is a photo of my younger sister and me. It was taken in an amusement park by my father. :) My parents love to take family photos. They make them go to print in a local photo studio. They often selected their favorite photos of the prints and  wanted one more in a big size.  

At first, this is not a clear photo, so I hesitated to use this photo on my page. But because the photo has been the story of my childhood, so I decided to use it! :) It is about letter paper size.

 1. I sewed the the top of  photo by machine and placed it on top of 12 x12 inch white cardstock with double side tape.

2. I trimmed patterned papers into about 2 inch. I used 6x6 patterned papers from Felicity collection.

3. I did machine stitching on every paper pieces and add them on background using two different glues for 3D effect.

4. I added a title (Puffy alpha stickers & Acetate die cut words - Life Noted collection).


5. I embellished with details.

I used color block wood stickers(Felicity collection), foiled epoxy stickers, wood foil stickers and rubber charm stickers(Life Noted collection). It is a first time to create a layout with a big photo. I've felt that it's not easy to use a big photo on a layout page. After this time, I found the fun of creating a page with a big photo!!! :)

 I hope you'll enjoy it and it'll inspire your creation!!! Thank you for stopping by.

Love what you’ve done on this layout! I’ve never used a big photo because I didn’t know what to do with the small spaces left around it. I see lots of good design ideas here and will be trying them out myself. thanks for the inspiration!
