Our baby girl will be arriving in just a matter of weeks! When I saw the Be Loved collection for the first time, I knew it would be perfect for scrapbooking Adlyn. I couldn't wait for photos of her in person, so I decided to scrap my favorite shots from a recent ultrasound. Even though I narrowed down my choices, I still had too many pictures (and Be Loved goodies) for a single page layout. So, I designed this double page spread:
Be Loved Devotion Patterned Paper / Be Loved Cool Gray Corrugate Paper / Be Loved Patterned Envelopes / Be Loved Small Decorative Tags / Be Loved Ephemera Pack / Be Loved Button Set / Be Loved Ticket Roll
I fell in love with the watercolor hearts of the Devotion patterned paper and was inspired to not only fussy-cut those hearts as accents, but to also pull out my watercolors to create my background.
After laying out my pictures and embellishments, I used a pencil to trace where the pictures would be. Then, I mixed watercolors to match the Be Loved color palette and painted frames for each picture. I also flicked a few drops of each color near its frame.
I love the sweet designs of Be Loved, but didn't want them to overpower my ultrasound photos, so I kept the page fairly clean and simple. It's hard enough to decipher those black and white shots without patterns competing for your attention!
By placing the pictures together in the center of the spread, I was able to frame out the page with corrugated paper and the b-side of Devotion.
To fill in spaces and draw your eye around the pictures, I added all sorts of delightful embellishments from the Be Loved line - tags, die-cuts, buttons, chipboard tags and envelopes. I love the texture and color they offer the page.
Even after all the fun I had creating this ultrasound page with Be Loved, I can't wait to use Be Loved for photos of Adlyn once she's here. I can't think of a better collection to showcase a little girl who is so incredibly loved!
Thanks for sto^ping by!
