Every month Kathie writes a letter to her son, detailing what he’s been up to, and his latest favourite activities, movies, toys etc. These letters often provide the journaling for her layouts, as in this example.
Kathie’s used a neutral paper from Paper Loft’s Slug Bug range as the background for her page, and written her journaling straight onto it. The big monogram Slug Bug letters form a wonderful focal point title for the page – to give them even more impact, Kathie’s outlined around the edges with a black felt tip pen.
A series of photos have been placed onto strips of patterned paper cut from one of the border sheets in the range. Circles, flowers and leaves cut from the Slug Bug patterned papers embellish the photo mat. Finally, Kathie’s stamped some images of helicopters, cars and trucks using Sassafras Lass Gas Hogs stamps, and added them to the layout for some boyish charm.
Even though at first glance, Paper Loft Cosmic may appear to be suited to young children, Jaimie chose to use this range for her sons t-ball page, and the soft neutral colours would acutally lend themselves to lots of different themes. Here clustered embellishments create interest as well as keeping with the theme of sports.
This next layout was created by Teresa Manchas, who lives in Washington, United States. Teresa has used just two sheets of Paper Loft paper, from the Grandma's House and the Now and Then collections, to create a layout of infinite intricacy and dimension.
All the embellishment on the layout has been created using stamps - Teresa stamped all the flowers and leaves and cut them out before attaching them to the layout. Even the photo has been printed on the Paper Loft paper, to give it an aged look. Thanks for letting us share your layout, Teresa!
This layout is a sad topic for Sheri Beersman who recently lost her Grandfather, however she tells me that this is her therapy for dealing with the loss - I'm sure many of us can relate to that. Sheri has used the Well Worn range so perfectly for this special layout. She has also used Basic Grey letters for her title. Many thanks for sharing this special layout with us Sheri.
Here are some more inspiring creations using Paper Loft and this time it's the Grandma's House range. Michelle Gutierrez has created these fab canvases of her children and I think you'll agree the Grandma's House range has really made these canvases look stylish. Thank you for sharing Michelle!
