Happy Girl

Good morning! I've got one last layout to show you from Scrapbook Simple's January kits,  Only You and You and Me.  Somehow this one slipped through the cracks. Ooops

My efforts for this page were about creating a fun base on the left side of the page that takes advantage of the variety of tapes, garland and patterned papers in the kit.  I started by using the star mask from the Stars Were Gleaming December add-on. I then printed a polaroid style version of my photo.  Then it was a matter of layering strips and tapes together.  

I love that I'll be able to use the tapes included in the kits in the months to come, don't you!

Have you learned to layer and cover up what you put down first, so just a bit peeks out?  I've found that is one of the secrets to effective layering.  When I first began, I was loathe to cover up my favorite pieces, but I've since found that doing so is what makes a page intriguing.

What have you layered lately?  Do you enjoy layers, find them intimidating?  Tell me your layering experiences.


  1. I am just learning to let go and layer ... I used to be like... I NEED to see the paper I am using and not cover it up ... but now, I just go with the layering flow :) I loveeeeeeeeee your lo!! LOVING the photo, the masking and all the hearts!! BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  2. Loves of beautiful elements. Love the masking and the garland. Great treatments for such a happy photo. I like to layer but I'm not as adventuresome with it as I want to be. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Gorgeous layout...love the little banner!

    I like to layer. Sometimes I am cautious about it and others I go at it with reckless abandonment and see what happens.

  4. This is adorable! I rarely do any layering. My style is very simple, so I find it hard to layer. I like the look when others do it, but it doesn't always look right on my own pages.

  5. I love this layout, the colors are great and the layering is amazing. FANTASTIC

  6. I really like how you used the star stencil and then the banners. Cool

  7. Oooo, I really like your style! Love the stars and the banner. Very cool!!


I really enjoy your feedback, so thanks a bundle for taking the time to leave it.
