Love Always Layout | Desiree Lamar

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a layout using The Best Day collection. My goal was to keep it simple and use two of my favorite patterned papers from the collection. To keep the focus on the papers, I used the Floral Square cut file available in the Pinkfresh Studio Fan Facebook group.

First, I made a pattern for my background by smudging a little Slumber Premium Die Ink over the Diamond Plaid Stencil. I did this for the bottom right corner of my cut file and the top left corner.

For my base paper, I used a coordinating patterned paper from the Keeping It Real collection. To back my cut file, I used this "Home Sweet Home" and "Loved This Day" patterned paper that are both available in The Best Day 12 x 12 Paper Pack. I placed my cut file at an angle to add a little interest to my page.

Next, I made a cluster where my photo would go. I used the Curvy Leaves Die Set to give the feel of leafy bundles flowing from each cluster. Then, I framed the photo of my husband at our local natural history museum with this lovely blue and green floral frame from The Best Day Chipboard Frames to make the picture pop. I couldn't resist adding a little piece of chipboard flair to my cluster.

To make the "Love Always" title, I used the deep blue The Best Day Puffy Alpha Stickers. These alphas are definitely a favorite of mine. Not only do they come with upper and lowercase alphas, but the alphas include curls and lines that are perfect for titles.

Last, to help balance the layout, I added this deep blue puffy heart. As usual, I completed the layout by sprinkling The Best Day Enamel Dots throughout my page.

I hope you enjoyed this layout as much as I did. This spread came together in a breeze with this dynamic collection. I love the color combination that my favorite patterned papers made for this page. Thank you so much for joining me today!
