Hi everyone! I am just sharing a layout that I made using the new Prima Free Spirit collection today. This is my daughter and her roommate and I thought that this collection fit perfectly with their photo and with their fun outdoor activities.
I started my design by using 3 artist trading cards as my base. Instead of using 3 different ones, I chose to use 3 of the same. I knew that I wanted to use lots of embellishments, so I wanted to have continuity in the base of the design.
It's a lot of fun to be friends with your kids on Facebook and photos like these are one of the reasons why. I lifted this one off my daughter's Facebook page. This generation uses Facebook so often to share their photos and it's a great source for scrapbookers to be sure to include their photos in books even when they no longer live at home.
I used flowers from both the Free Spirit Collection and also included the large yellow flower from the Bloom Collection, which we've already established that I love!
I also like the Hexagon shaped pieces, especially the Live Free piece that I used for my title.
Because I really liked the hexagon shape, I decided to echo it for some additional design by stitching some simple ones in various places on my page.
Tip: I used a couple of my hexagon punches for a pattern for the stitching. Just place, pierce and add simple long stitches.
Scatter some banner pieces, buttons, brads and a touch of ribbon and you're done! Because their is very little cutting in this design, it goes together really quickly!
