12x12 Layout & Tag
Welcome to my first ever blog post and designer Layout for Scrapping Fun Kits.
When I got the Exclusive Neon Kit, I was so excited that I started this layout immediately. The embellishments were just beautiful and co-ordinated so well. I even did a Tag with the embellishments I didn't use in my layout, which you can see further down the page,
The only way you can get a Neon Kit is if you win the Prize Draw for the Summer Fun YouTube Hop.
With so many great embellishments its was hard to choose which ones to use as I wanted to use them all. I generally start by choosing the position of my photo and then I place the main embellishments, title and papers. I don't usually glue them down at this point so I can move them around a bit. In saying that they never end up in the same position again but the general idea is there.
I coloured the "beautiful" chipboard word with a pink Kaisercraft ink pad just dabbing it until I got the desired brightness.
As I was playing with the cardboard hearts I slipped one into the paperclip hearts already on the page and they added a great effect to the page. I didn't even have to adhere them .
The little neon orange rose and puff sticker flower also found a place amongst this embellishment cluster.
I wanted something in the top left corner and played around with this for a while. I tried to use the butterflies again but sadly they didn't fit (don't worry they get used later).
The Glitter Alpha's, Brads & triangle puff sticker swapped places a few times but eventually found their spots
To finish I added the washi tape and the little puff sticker stars in the bottom corner with a little Journal tag to mark the Date & place of the photo. I am not big on journaling and as most of my layouts are from many years ago, I have forgotten what was happening at the time. I am lucky to remember the date hehe..
I love the result, I think the neon colours bring out the quite plain coloured photo and compliments my daughters beautiful bright smile.
Butterflies in Neon - Tag
After I completed the layout I still really wanted to use the butterflies. I hadn't used the black rose and had so many alpha's left, so after a night of sleep and deep thought I came up with this Tag Idea. With some Neon Cardstock, trimmed with some Pink Kaisercraft Ink, some neon green ribbon and a flower eyelet, this tag was my creation. I lifted the Butterfly wings with some foam tape. I plan to use this one day on another Neon Layout.
