The paper is from a new DCWV stack called Honey Chic. I am really loving the new lines they are coming out with, and you will too. They are really listening to their customers (sending lots of surveys to find what people really want from them, and then trying to accomodate) and also having some very on-trend offerings as well. They have some really great new stacks with nautical themes, blue and coral, outdoors, woodsy and vintage. And you will die for the Gilded stack. Kraft with gold. Foil. It is AWESOME. I will have to post a card I made for my husband with this stack. It was great for a man card because it wasn't too feminine. But anyway, back to my current project!
Lots of fun colors, and I really like the bright colors against the black. I popped up the flags so they would really pop off the page.
I can't even tell you how I am still so excited to be able to design titles like this with my Cricut Explore! It just makes me giddy! So I took one of the 4x6 journaling cards from the stack. It had a cute glitter-y (it's hard to see in the picture) banner element which I thought mirrored well off of the banner I had on my page. I designed the title, and because of the software I was able to adjust where it would cut on the mat so I could cut the title on the journaling card and then back it with patterned paper. I really love how it turned out. I just added some colorful sequins confetti style to fill in the white space a little bit.
The blue paper in the background has a bunch of sweet phrases in a script font. I highlighted one that said "you make me happy" because I thought it was so fitting for this page. The camera is an SVG cut that I was able to cut with my Cricut (!). I believe I got it from 2 Peas. I still love camera images and use them frequently. The darling 'This" paperclip and flair are from Freckled Fawn. They have the best embellishments. Love them.
Lastly I just added some colorful enamel dots and arrows to add just a little more color and interest in the upper left corner.
I hope you enjoyed my project today. Here is a picture of the stack I used if you would like one of your own!!
