Lovely Day by Sandy

Sandy made this beautiful layout using this month’s featured line, Lovely Day by Dear Lizzy. She started with a black and white photo booth strip from Chuck E Cheese. Then she created all these yummy layers with a few papers from Lovely Day (the bottom of this post shows all the papers she used). In addition to stacking the papers to create layers, she also stitched on her bottom layers and tore one of her papers to create even more dimension. You can tell how much fun Sandy has making her layouts.

Sandy added her final touches with the embellishment pack “fine little day” brad. Then some stickers tucked into the top from the 6X12 sticker sheet and the chipboard phrase stickers. She added some acrylic and rubber words from her stash for her title and added the journaling underneath. She placed a few enamel shapes from her stash that matched perfectly with this line to finish it off. Don’t you just love the colors in this layout? You don’t have to use the “traditional” colors of a specific place or theme on your layouts at all. Use the colors you love and it will make your process so much more fun!

Planner Layout by Sandy

For Sandy, February is all about love. Sandy stuffed her Simple Stories planner full of all these goodies from the Crate Paper Heart Day collection. She designed her adorable February page like a mini layout using the collection.

Here you can find some of the papers from the collection and lots of lovely layered pieces from the ephemera pack. She framed her photo with a frame from the 12×12 chipboard stickers and layered some feathers and a doily behind it all for some beautiful interest!

She used an acetate sheet as a dashboard that so perfectly frames her layout. While this acetate isn’t available in the shop, there are some Bazzill acetate sheets that can be cut down and hole-punched to create a dashboard for your own planner!

I had to include this close up photo of all the goodies Sandy stuffed in here! How fun does this look? Not only does it make it easy to find your products that coordinate with your monthly design, but it’s beautiful! She used a phrase sticker directly on her planner. If you’re unsure about sticking things to your planner directly, you can place your favorite stickers on a tag or card and slip in into your pockets. Here’s a list of the items featured here if you’d like to stuff your planner too! Heart Day Ephemera Pack, Heart Day Layered Embellishments, Heart Day Puffy Heart Stickers and Heart Day Phrase Stickers.

Sandy has put together an unboxing video of this whole line. Watch the video below if you’d like to see this all up close! Find Sandy on YouTube where she does unboxing videos and process videos. She’s also on Instagram where you can see more of her work. You really have to see what she’s done with her Heidi Swapp Instax Album! She’s been sharing her progress with that on her Instagram too!

Frosty Decembrr by Sandy

Even though this collection brings visions of freshly fallen snow, it also has the most soft and light colors that can be used for all kinds of memories!

Sandy used the Winter Wonderland collection to document this gorgeous photo of frost on the trees. The background for this photo is amazing! The beautiful sunrise underneath the perfectly blue sky just draws you in, doesn’t it? Can you believe her Mom took this photo with an iPhone 7? I almost feel like I’m there looking at it!

Sandy used the frosty letters and die cuts from the bits and pieces pack to create this awesome title on her photo, “Frosty Decembrr”. Too cute!

She tore some paper strips from the collection and added some gold stitching to create these awesome layers for her photo to rest on.

Sandy tucked some coordinating tags into her layers for journaling and to hold some phrases from the 4×6 sticker sheets that mirror the thoughts of this image. The painted stars and splatters, with a few dispersed enamel dots and snowflakes, create another layer of interest to this layout.

Sandy added a doily to reinforce the softness of this layout along with my new favorite embellishment, A FEATHER! No way would putting a feather on a layout have ever occurred to me, but now I’m finding myself looking for feathers to add to my own layouts!

I know this layout by Sandy has inspired me to do more mixed media in my layouts and think about what other things I could be adding to my pages! What did you take away from Sandy’s layout?

Winter Wonderland Project Life-Style by Sandy

Even though Sandy hasn’t seen a lot of snow yet, she used the Winter Wonderland line to document the other comforts of the season. Her favorite things about her mom’s house, the holiday cookies she loves and even the tiny bit of snow they’ve seen so far are all documented on this spread.

Using primarily the same line of supplies, and typing all her journaling, Sandy was able to keep her spread cohesive while still using lots of beautiful embellishments. One of the best ways she does this is by using the “white space” in her photos for a few smaller stickers or die cuts. That helps to bring the whole spread together by making it seem like every photo matches, even if the colors in the photos are different. This is a great way to have different photos from different days seem like they were all meant to go together!

Sandy perfectly layered her title on the Momma’s Cookies card using some of the washi from the collection and the letter stickers from the 4×6 sticker sheets. Then she stitched on top of it all just for that extra special detail. I love the journaling on this card and especially how she says, “Home is where the momma is.” The “Cold Hands, Warm Hearts” card from the 3×4 cut apart sheet is my absolute FAVORITE! It’s even more cute with the little added gold heart! The scaled-down versions of the papers in the 6×6 paper pad make it easy to use those lined papers in a smaller format to journal in your pocket size scrapbooking.

Sometimes it’s hard to really love the winter season when I feel like I’m freezing all of the time. Sandy really reminded me of all the beautiful things there are to appreciate even while I’m bundled up shivering in my coat and scarf!
