Together Again: Anatomy of a Layout

If you are looking for the My Creative Scrapbook blog hop, please see this post. 

Hi everyone. I'm back today with another project from My Creative Scrapbook's October kit. This cute kit featured the Friendly Forest collection from Doodlbug Design. 

I loved the patterned paper with the words about Fall and wanted to feature it so I made it the base of my design. I layered a few other papers in the collection to make a horizontal photo mat near the bottom of the page. 

The die cut card is from Jillibean Soup. It was white and a bit too stark for my layout, so I darken the card a bit with mist and sewed on a colorful ribbon. I backed the card with purple patterned paper from the kit to make it pop against the orange background. Then I added a couple stickers on top. 

To the right of the large orange photo mat, I added a doily under the photo, a tab sticker and layered a flower on top of a large die cut leaf.

The layout was coming along but I needed a space for my title and I wanted to balance out the heaviness at the bottom on the page.  So I added a shipping tag to the top, colored it with mist then added some stickers, die cuts and my title. 

Here's another look at the completed layout:
