Hello, Crafty Internet! Today I’d like to share another scrapbook layout I created using the Lush kit from Crafty City. As stated in this post, I love this kit so much I can’t stand myself. I sometimes struggle with how to put things together and this kit is so inspiring the layouts pretty much make themselves. If you aren’t inspired to create with this kit, you may be dead inside.
Here’s the kit contents in case you don’t remember:
Here is the layout:
This is my father and I when I was around a year old. My father is my most favorite person in all the world. The Hubs has understood this since the beginning. He is okay with the fact that I am a card carrying member of the Daddy’s Girl Club and that will never change. As he is his mother’s favorite child, he doesn’t kick up a fuss over it.
So anyway, onto how I put this scrapbook page together. I cut the heart from a template I made with printer paper, distressed the edges and inked. My father is a fabulous musician so the music paper was perfect for it. In my stash of chipboard I had some chain link pieces so I thought it would be cute to make it look like the heart was hanging so I added it to the top. I layered some of the ephemera that came in the kit under the photo and added a doily. The flowers and butterflies came from the kit as well. I still cannot get over how gorgeous the flowers are that came with the kit…and so many! The sentiment chipboard came from my stash. I gessoed over the letters before using a Prima edger in pink to color it.
Here are some close ups:
And once more for those in the back:
I am very happy with this layout. I kept it simple and didn’t add too much extra. I like letting the papers show through and letting the extra bits make a splash.
