Final Moments // 12x12 Layout Share

November 14, 2017

Hello friends and welcome back! Today I am sharing a really fun and bright layout with you all. This has been the first 12x12 layout in what seems like months that I haven't filmed. Sometimes it is important to take a step back and just create to have fun. Although, I often find that I wish I had filmed the process for you all when I create layouts like this one! The daylight savings has been kicking my butt for filming. I can only film on the weekends now with my work schedule, but nevertheless I have been bulk filming to make up for it.

This layout is about the final moments of my role as a college student (on campus that is). Some of you know that I finished college early, but to do so, I took summer classes after my graduation ceremony. Even symbolic moments like these are really great to capture.

I started this layout with a cross patterned paper from Simple Stories. I matted my two photos on some Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss 6x6 papers.  My color palette for this layout was inspired by this die cut floral piece from American Crafts. Pieces like these are great starting points for layouts. They are easy to build color palettes off of. I paired this die cut piece with two large wood veneer butterflies. I also included a die cut key by Shimelle to go with the theme of the photos.

I wanted to include a cluster on the right hand side to help balance out the left hand side. I used a little die cut from Kaiser Craft that says "enjoy the ride" as a base. I also used a Pretty Little studio cut apart label. I used a heart flair from April Lilli, a resin flower, and some pearls to decorate. All over my entire layout are adorable tiny stamped hearts. This stamp is from Pink Fresh Studio and adds a lot with a little work.

My title for this layout is "final moments". I decided to hand stitch it and I plan on making a video tutorial soon on how to create a stitching pattern using your own hand writing! Beneath the title I used a Simple Stories die cut that says "real life" to bring in more pink and a Studio Calico vellum arrow to bring in another pop of yellow.

The hand stitching is really simple to do. I will also include in the video tutorial how to make a template to stitch any shape that you want. So definitely look forward to that! I sprinkled some other pearl stickers and resin flowers throughout the page as well.

Stitching the dot of the "i" was a little tricky. I actually ripped the paper, but to fix it, I simply added a mini wood veneer as the dot. Simple fixes like this are easy ways to skip the stress of a little layout mishap.

This layout again, was a great break from videoing layouts. I took my time and found it very easy to put together. I hope you enjoyed this layout share and hope you look forward to the stitching tutorial. Thanks for stopping by!
