I used Bazzill Lime Crush as the base for the layout (I gutted out the centre to use for matting the photograph). I cut the Sugar Cream cardstock to 11" x 11" and adhered this to the Lime Crush cardstock to make the base of the layout.
I layered up using the Green Gingham and Wallpaper patterned paper and used a Journal Card under the photograph (cut to fit both sides of the photo). This will be used for journaling as well as adding to the overall layout. A die-cut lace border was added using Green Gingham paper. The banners were cut from left over pieces of patterned papers. I added faux stitching and some gems to complete.
My version looks different from the original as I used different patterned papers and embellishments making the layout my own. Using layouts from magazines as inspiration is a quick way to kick start your own designs - give it a go.
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment and I will enter your name into the draw (if you qualify).
