With Friday upon us, it's the end of Crate Paper's "Sprinkle-Fest" event! We're all candied out here, and getting ready for next month's Creative Weekly! There is one more final presentation of projects, three layouts, each lending it's own unique perspective and prettiness to the subject at hand. Please, feel free to pin them, as we love it when Crate's DT projects show up over there. Help us spread the sweetness that is Crate Paper! Have a fabulous weekend!
When I saw the inspiration photo, it conjured up images of my daughter. She loves cake, and when nibbling on it, she usually has a big smile on her face. So, in regards to this week's theme, I used a photo of my daughter smiling and with it, an abundance of sweet, bright colors. And just like the spreading of chocolate on top a dessert, I misted a sprinkling of different colored mists, too. Why go with only one, when there's so many to pick from these days? I love how the layout turned out - to me, it feels extra-girly!
When I think about sprinkles, I think about a party's inviting atmosphere, and the happiness is generates amongst it's attendees. Sprinkles also remind me of confetti, the kind that is thrown in the air at parties, or tucked inside invitations. As these two thoughts came to mind, I created a little confetti pocket from vellum paper and stitching. Inside the pocket is confetti, punched from matching patterned paper. On the other side of the layout, I used colored mist around the brads and stickers spread though out, and the page's title. I love that the Crate Paper collections work so well together. Here, I used a mixture of Emma's Shoppe, Random and Pretty Party.
When I heard this week's theme was to be sprinkles, I automatically knew I wanted to play with confetti! I couldn't think of a better thing to document than our recent trip to a local frozen yogurt stand with so many options of things to sprinkle on as toppings. For making this layout, I grabbed my hole puncher and mod podge, and went to town with both! It turned out to be such a fun process!!
