12×12: So Fun

So Fun 12x12 Layout using Maggie Holmes Carousel Collection - Lydia Cost

This layout was such a breeze to create, and when I sat down to create it, I really needed the outlet to create!  We had these cute pictures taken some time last year, and they just make me giggle!  I knew that chipboard “So Fun” piece would make the perfect title!


This page was inspired by a Suse Fish layout that I loved!

After aligning my squares in the center of the page similar to how she did, I left a space for layering around my photo in the left-side corner, but I wanted to create a little shaker pocket on the left side.  Using my Confetti Punch, I punched a sheet from the 6×8 paper pad, and stitched them inside a little glassine piece.  I really loved the simplicity of it!


I chose to save the corner for my photo for last because it had the most layering.  I played with all the papers in the Carousel collection and also some embellishments from the line.  I chose to hide my journaling in a little vellum envelope behind my photo to stick with a clean layout.


I finished off my pages with a few paint splatters from my new favorite watercolor set from Vicki Boutin!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you are having an amazing week!
