BasicGrey Blueprint

 

Kelly Noel took this week’s Blueprint inspiration to a whole new level with her gorgeous layout!

Kelly: When I first saw the inspiration piece, I thought “Wow, that’s so pretty!” and then I panicked a bit wondering if I could pull it off since I have all boys and I don’t get to scrap “pretty” very often. I didn’t have any great photos to use of my boys, so I used a photo from a girly photo session I did last summer.

I used the Silhouette feather cut files to cut the same feather in three different sizes. I knew I wanted to use watercolors to dress them up, so I cut them out in watercolor paper so that they would take the watercolors better. Then I used a waterbrush and some watercolor paints to paint each feather a different color. Once they were dry, I stapled them together at the stems and tucked them underneath my photo. I added some of the gold glitter candy buttons (my new fave!) to embellish the center of each feather and I love the detail it added.

Kelly: I’m completely head over heels in love with Persimmon! We don’t get much “fall” here in Florida, but I love that these papers and embellishments match with lots of different themes. With that being said, I was really happy to come across these photos of my two oldest boys at the pumpkin patch a few years ago.

I love my Silhouette and use it often for cutting titles and accents for my pages. It’s also an amazing tool for creating an eye-catching background for your page! I used the Square background cut file here for this layout. I resized the image to fit across a 12 x 12″ canvas in the Silhouette Studio software and cut it out.

Then, I simply cut squares from the 6 x 6″ paper pad (I loved the smaller scale for this project, since only a small amount of the paper was going to show) to fit behind each square and this layout came together super quickly.

Kelly Noel: I love making cards, even though I’m more of a scrapbooker, it’s a great way to use up leftovers and scraps from my pages. I used the RSVP collection for this card. It’s obviously the perfect line for birthday cards! ;) Something I love to do on cards is layer. Everything pops more with dimension, so I love to use foam adhesive to lift some things up. I also layered several of the chipboard pieces here to create a really detailed look for my card.
