So bright and cheerful, isn’t it? Let’s take a look at this week’s layouts, brought to you by the Design House Digital Decorators:
Jennifer says: “I loved the bright colors, but for this layout I chose to go nearly monochromatic in blue — I selected many of the blues to go along with a photo of my daughter in blue on Easter. I layered some of the different papers from Karen and Sara to get a variety of textures and shades, and added some yellow elements for a pop of contrast color. I love the neutral paper for the background; the worn spots add some fun texture and visual interest without being overwhelming.”
Jen says: “I loved all the bright, vibrant colours of this Collab! There were a lot of fun patterns and elements, so it was pretty easy to put this one together! I used the cute bows as anchors for some of my elements and found the banner bound all the pieces together perfectly!”
Sarah says: “I am using a lot of Kraft backgrounds lately, so Karen and Sara didn’t disappoint! I love the bright colors on the neutral background. I chose to use mostly blue and red, with a few pops of yellow. The happy coincidence is that the cake was also mostly blue. I loved using all the patterned papers behind the photos- they look like pieces of ribbon. I had to play with some masks and layers to get the tag to thread onto my ribbon- and I really like how it turned out. As usual, I played with the shadows to give the page a bit more depth.”
Arielle says: “I have been into neutral backgrounds lately, so I loved that this bright kit had a kraft paper, too! The papers were all so yummy, I happily used Audrey Neal’s Banners Galore Template so I could show off as many of them as possible! I reduced the size of the tags from the template. I also decided to try to make the numbered “flair” look a little transparent, so part of the birthday banner and washi tape were layered (I also lowered their opacity) over the flair. The stitching was added for a little extra detail.”
Who’s birthday will you be celebrating next?
My husband is turning the big 38 in a couple of months, which is the next one in our family. I’m totally his much-younger trophy wife.
Be sure to stop by this weekend when Karen’s and Sara’s shops will be on sale. You can score some good deals on all their products, and even grab a few freebies and dollar kits! Don’t delay, though, everything goes back to regular price on Monday.
