Lake Life + Bella Besties + Letter Scramble I Heather Cerulo

Hello there! Happy almost St. Patrick's Day! Whether you celebrate, or not, this is the perfect time to think about all those things in our lives that make us lucky!  For me, that is being an auntie to my niece and nephew.



For my (mostly) monochromatic layout, I pulled out all the green papers from the Lake Life collection, along with the Bella Besties in Guacamole and Pickle Juice.  I did pull in an Ice Bella Bestie paper as well, to match the blue in the Lake Life plaid paper.  I started with a 4"x4" photo, and created photo mats with my patterned papers, each a 1/2" larger than the previous layer.



Next, I used a die to die cut lots of small hearts from the patterned paper, and cascade them from the top of the layout, sewing through each vertical line.  I added a few popped up hearts on top of the first layer of hearts, and some Trinket Puffy Stickers and Epoxy Dots, as well.



For the title at the top of my page, I used pre-made phrases from the Lake Life ephemera words.  I did cut off another part of the phrase to isolate just the word "life" to make my title "Family Life".



On the bottom of my layout, I used a large piece of Guacamole Graph and Dot paper, along with a small strip in Ice.  I pulled out some larger heart dies to create the shamrock on the bottom left corner of my photo.  I used the Letter Scramble alphas in White to add words to each of the hearts, before connecting them together to make a shamrock.



Last, I created one more shamrock with another size heart die, and added each of our initials (a for Auntie!).  I added a few phrase sentiments under my photo from the Lake Life collection, and finished off by adding the year.


I hope you are inspired to create today!
