For me, it was the beautiful, bright , bold colours that stood out the most so that's what I used as a starting off point for my creation this week.
Made with Love
supplies: cloud stamp, myStamp BOX; patterned papers, Doodlebug Design; cabbage rose ribbon, Tim Holtz; brads, Making Memories; twine, The Twinery; mists, Tattered Angels; cardstock, Bazzill; cupcake pin and buttons, My Little Bit of Whimsy; tools, Klic N' Kut machine; other, thread.
I started off by designing and cutting a penagon shaped puzzle from multiple shades of the super fun Doodlebug Designs "petite prints" cardstock. I had it in a variety of different colours and I knew the bright colours would be a whimsical design to use for my layout. I used my Klic N'Kut design studio to design the pentagon shapes and corresponding diamond shapes that fit in the pattern. I also used it to design and cut my title details too!
A touch of zig-zag stitching added a finishing touch...
I added some fun brads to my cabbage rose ribbon to look like sprinkles... just like the cupcakes we made for my husband!
Those cute little cupcake buttons and the single pin are from My Little Bit of Whimsy! I knew they were a perfect fit for this layout!
I finished it off with a stitched heart wrapped with twine and a single cloud to match the 2 around my focal photos at the top. It's a cute little stamp from the "Wishing You Sunshine" stamp collection at myStamp BOX.
