Hello everyone! Enza here, and today I'm sharing my very first layout featuring the new, gorgeous Wild Heart collection by Crate Paper. I love the vibrant colors and fun patterns of this line; it is versatile and perfect to document your everyday moments.
The first thing that caught my eye when I opened the box was the stamp set. So many possibilities with it. I really like the mix of big and small leaves, as well as the lovely sentiment in the same handwritten font you find throughout the collection. Here is the layout:
I decided to heat-emboss some leaves with copper embossing powder as I wanted them to match the warm colors of the other elements. I also stamped a few in a light pink color ink, again to coordinate with the rest of the collection. In order to create a cluster on one side of the photo, I layered the fussy-cut images with die-cuts and stickers. Everything was adhered down with foam dots for dimension. A fun rosette ribbon completed the cluster.
For the background, I cut the Planted patterned paper somewhat in half, following along the lines of the design and placed it in the top portion of the page. I love all the fun and colorful die-cuts that come in the ephemera pack. Here I layered a few of them behind the photo; I also arranged stickers and the “love” paper clip to form another cluster on the right side.
The glitter foam stickers are perfect to add sparkly details here and there on your page. I used the “Favorite” sentiment as my title, and added the big butterfly at the bottom to give a “finished” look to the design.
To balance the layout, I layered a few more elements in the opposite corner of the page; a mix of stickers, die-cuts, foam elements that bring in lots of texture and interest.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my process and will feel inspired to start creating with the new Wild Heart collection.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
