Happy Life - Like For Ever Kit Club

Hi, it's me again! I wanted to share the first layout I created with the February Beep Beep kit from "like for ever". I had so much fun playing with this kit! All the papers (Shimelle & Dear Lizzy) are so gorgeous, I really had trouble choosing the papers I was going to use for this first layout! My eyes kept going back to the Lil’ Bit Lovely paper (the one with the chevrons), so I decided to go with that one. What helped was that this paper matched the colours in my photo perfectly. I also used one of this month’s sketches (I’m a huge fan of sketches, so I want to use at least one of Laura Rumble’s awesome sketches every month!). Here’s what I created:

And this is the sketch I used:

I did make a few adjustments, like for example at the bottom of the layout … I really tried to keep the space “open”, but I just couldn’t do it, I had to fill it. I started by adding one of those tear strips that are added to all the sheets in this collection, but that wasn’t enough. In the end I used the part of the paper that I had cut off the top; I turned it around and adhered it right above the dark blue strip of paper. I tucked a bit of yellow patterned paper behind it as well, so it matched with what I had done at the top.

The photo I used was taken only last month. The kids were all wearing clothes in the same colour and didn’t even do this on purpose. I made them sit down and pose, which didn’t work of course. I took 20 photos and this was the best, lol. But I’m happy with it, especially because it matches this kit so well! I matted the photo on two pieces of patterned paper and added lots of die-cuts and stickers.

Here are a few close-ups:

ust adore those puffy icon stickers and would love to hoard them! But I realize that that would be a shame so I forced myself to use them. What I also love is that the Thickers come in two colours: in black and in white and you can choose which colour fits your page best.

The Dear Lizzy die-cuts in this kit are so cute, like that camera and the tag with the bike. Just adorable!

After a bit of machine stitching and a few drops of ink (not quite sure about those to be honest) I was done! Hope you like it.
