The Good Life - Imaginisce

Today I had the time to just sit down and create a layout for fun! The kids were away to some amusement park and I had the house to myself. I chose the Heartland Farm collection from Imaginisce and these photos of my youngest and I and got started. Here's the result after an afternoon playing:

For the background I used a sheet of patterned paper with the strip at the bottom still attached and instead cut a strip off at the top of the sheet. I love the playful effect this gives. 

Next I misted my white cardstock with some yellow Mister Huey's while holding the paper upright, so the mist would run down my page. I chose a large cut file and placed a little pile of layered scraps and my photos on top. I carefully lifted the corners and stamped some flower images on the right and left. 

Next I added the title, more stamps, some drops of mist, a few enamel dots, cardstock die-cuts, a wood bottle cap and some silver glam rocks with Imaginisce's I-Rock Tool. 

Last but not least I wrote a bit of journaling and machine stitched the sides and through the word "fun". 

Imaginisce: patterned paper, cardstock die-cuts, wood bottle caps, enamel dots (Heartland Farm), Glam Rocks. American Crafts: cardstock, Thickers. Studio Calico: color mist. Tools: Imaginisce I-Rock tool, I-Rock Jewel Tray and Lighted Tweezers. Other: Silhouette Cameo, digital cut file, sewing machine.

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
