Hello all! Wendy here to share up my first blog post with you as a creative team member on the hybrid team for Amber LaBau Designs! I just love the style and color of Amber’s designs and instantly fell in love as I checked out her designs upon first gasp at The Lilypad. Some product you just artistically connect with…maybe you can relate, yes.
The latest release for BYOC (Build Your Own Collaboration), My Heart Sings, well, makes my heart sing. Literally. The perfect splash of color, happy happy and inspiration all bundled together with good vibes. I don’t know how in the world that girlie said she struggled with designing this collection as it is definitely an energy picker upper. Agree?
My inspiration for my project with My Heart Sings was to bring myself into focus on a scrapbook layout. I’m a full blooded hybrid scrapbooker around here, so I went this route for my project to bring it all together.
By the way, aren’t we normally in the zone behind the lens? Well, it’s high time you bring yourself into a bit of limelight (no shame or ego thing as you have my approval, *wink*) and share a bit of yourself for a change. Old or new, just grab a pic of yourself and make it happen. For my photo, I added the phrase from My Heart Sings | Elements with a bit of color change to white text in PSE directly on the photo.
Major crushing on the My Heart Sings | Papers, so I chose to use several bits and scraps, if you will, randomly on my layout. I also added a card from My Heart Sings | Pocket Cards directly under my photo. A twist of a mini flower along with paint misting and a few sprinkles of sequins and star rub-ons brings a bit of random to my layout.
A finishing touch brings a fun banner to tie into my theme, This Makes Me Happy, from My Heart Sings | Elements.
I hope you enjoyed my layout share!
