Hello Today!

Every month, I create a project for the Gossamer Blue blog using the Life's Pages cards. This month's layout is one of my favorites that I've done. I absolutely fell in love with the cards that were designed by Peppermint Granberg in Add On 3. I knew as soon as I saw them that I wanted to create a page with them as the focus. Here is what I made:

I selected my favorite cards and then added a couple of the Amy Tangerine tags. The green one was stitched by me!

Then, I stitched the edges of all of the cards and started embellishing them. I stuck with a pink and green theme.

I tucked a couple of the gold doilies under the cards and flipped them over so that the cream side would show through with just a hint of gold peeking out. To tone down the cord stars, I inked them with pastel pink chalk ink.

This is my favorite card. I added some stitching and gems then finished it off with a heart. 

Since I wanted the cards as my focus, and I had a ton of pics, I created little collages in PSE and journaled directly on them. Then, I clipped all of the photos to the card and adhered the clip to the layout.
 So, I got the best of both worlds...I focused on the cards AND created a layout with lots of pics and journaling.

That's about it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

These are so adorable, Anabelle! I love how they're mostly white and minimal with the vibrant pops of color. I also love that you turned the doily around so that just a hint of gold shows through. So, so cute!
