Hallo – layout using digital papers

I was so inspired by the free digital Valentine’s papers I used yesterday that I wanted to use them for a layout. I decided on a picture of Signe where the colours are somewhat muted so they wouldn’t compete with colours and patterns of the papers.

Nearly every time I create layouts for very young children like Signe, I struggle with titles… You can only use their names or something like “too cute” so many times. This time I took the easy way out and used Sizzix’ Phrase, Hello #2 die to diecut a Hello from dark grey felt. I used some of the printable embellishments and a few enamel dots to decorate the title with.

As always I needed a way to add a date to the layout and I went with a simple diecut using a Thinlits Basics die stamped with the date.
