Elle's Studio and Gossamer Blue Blog Hop!!

Hey Everyone! This month's Gossamer Blue kits are loaded with adorable goodies from Elle's Studio! I love the colors and patterns on the patterned paper, and decided to hand cut my title after being inspired by an amazing layout by Becky Novacek. I chose a few papers, grabbed my scissors and went to work! I didn't draw the letters before cutting because I wanted them to have an imperfect, hand cut look. With such a big title, I decided to use a simple heart photo that I took last 4th of July while playing around with sparklers, and I embellished with tags and die cuts from Elle's collection and even added some stamps (which is big for me!). Finally, I cut and stitched the white card stock to another brightly colored piece of patterned paper to create a frame for my layout. I love how it turned out!
