Sweet Blessings with Faith

Today I am sharing my "Sweet Blessings" layout with the beautiful "Faith" collection.


I love collecting vintage pics. This sweet little girl and her baby doll are just perfect paired with the "Faith" collection.  The soft colors and delicate patterns are perfect for projects featuring baby, weddings, or those lovely black and white vintage pics.  Even though there are a lot of textures and patterns in this layout, its easy to keep the focus on the photo with this soft palate.


First, I layered a paper doily, various sized paper squares, and diecuts.  Next, I added my photo and framed with flowers, stickers, and diecut leaves.


I added light brown ink to the edges of each piece to emphasize the vintage aspect of the layout.  Don't you love the many sizes and shapes of the sentiment stickers?  They add so much interest to this project.  This layout actually makes me think of opening a old desk drawer and finding some vintage postcards and notes, stamps, and tags with a sweet pic of a loved one sitting on top.  


My final touches: anchoring an inked tag with plaid ribbon and lovely pearl swirls.  I really like the pop of red and green with this soft collection.

What are you inspired to create?
