Hi lovelies! Back to share another layout using the gorgeous April kits from CTK. Lots of love for this one for a few reasons... One being cupcakes. Which is self-explanatory really. And two; I combined a few of my favourite designers onto the one page and I think they coordinate so well together!
I love Paige's new line, Oh My Heart (clearly I went with alot of pink here but it's not all like that ;)) and I added in a little from Maggie Holmes and Dear Lizzy. Plus the CTK exclusives = Love!
To be honest, I've been in a little creative funk for the past few weeks - I think mostly it's just due to work being busy (so I'm tired at night) plus I'm obsessed with this crotchet blanket which means not a lot of time for scrapping. I've actually been going back and using older layouts I made for inspiration and noticed that grids are a favourite go-to when I'm stuck.
Although I guess once I decided to cut out a few of those frames (Maggie Holmes, Portrait - from the Main kit) putting them in a grid layout just made sense too ;)
Do you ever make a page and there is one particular part that you love more than anything else? These two sections at the bottom part of my page is that for me. The green stripe paper with frame ontop and then the layered flower sticker, plus the cork shape with my journaling printed on the vellum (which came from my stash) and the b&w stripe paper ...I don't know why but I really love it ha.
The cork shapes included in the Pocket Life kit this month as so fun. I added another one (the XO banner) at the top of my page as well to help balance those colours on my page a bit.
I added a foam dot behind the sticker on the top RH corner and the bottom LH die-cut so give them a little more dimension (like the layered flower sticker that I love!).
Love to hear if anyone else uses their own pages as inspiration when creating new ones? I try not to scraplift myself (ha) but there are some older layouts that I just love the look of, so I figure why not use them again?! ;) Especially if you're in a funk and finding the brain-power to come up with something new seems a chore..
Hope your week is a great one. Have to confess I'm really looking forward to the long weekend (4 days of no work, wohoo!). Thanks so much for stopping by!! Take care, Em xo
