Hi Pebbles friends. Heather Leopard is here with a layout featuring one of my favorite phrases. This one is about the special bond between siblings, specifically sisters. While I don’t have any siblings myself, I see how much these two adore each other and I just fell in love with this quote.
This quote means so much to me. Obviously about their bond but also about my hopes and dreams for them, that they will be each other’s rock as they share life’s adventure. I chose to dominate the page with the quote and a single black and white photo zooming in on them holding hands. I will walk you through the steps on how to recreate something like this.
I knew I wanted to use a large phrase but I also knew I wanted some sort of grounding factor to it so I stitched layers of the same paper to the left 1/4 of the page. I also sewed a small black border (not pictures).
First, select a phrase and then cut the words. You have many options – hand cutting, die cutting using dies or your electronic cutting machine. I chose the latter. Just type your words in the software. Since I had the border on the left side of the page, I drew that out in the software so that I’d know just how big or small to make the letters. Once I liked the size, I cut the letters out of three different patterned papers.
Next, adhere the letters to the background paper. Make sure to leave room for your photo, embellishments and journaling, if you want to add additional comments.
I added little flower clusters around the page and the photo. I just fussy cut flowers that fit int he space I had available!
Some of the embellishments were tucked behind the layers and photo while others were adhered with foam squares for added dimension. So there you have it – a favorite quote of a favorite photo of my favorite girls. Now I will add just a bit of journaling and the date to finish it off.
