You Are a Star

I’ve scrapped this photo of my granddaughter before, but the dotted Swiss pattern on the “A” side of the “Tight Fit” paper from Maja Design’s Denim and Girls collection that came in the July kit from Très Jolie made a redo irresistible.

I needed a lightly patterned design to serve as my base and the “Amazing” paper was perfect, with just enough image and texture to provide interest while allowing me to keep the center as my focal point.
I tore two pieces of the “Tight Fit” sheet lengthwise, taking care that the white core shows all the way down. I fastened them down the center of the page, allowing the top sheet to overlap an inch or two from the bottom edge.
Next, I backed my photo with a piece of packaging to give it stability and dimension and glued it down just above the center.

As I was trimming the UPC strip from the bottom of the “Tight Fit” sheet, I had a moment of “Aha!”. Maja Designs backs these strips with patterns that coordinate with the papers and this one, in addition to the pattern of my base sheet gave me the here-to-for undecided title for my layout. I cut the strip to a length that fit the bottom of the photo and then a second piece that I fussy cut at the end. I backed them with packaging and placed them under the photo.

 I went into my stash for most of the flowers. The large navy bloom was centered with yellow stamens, not a good match. In the end, I removed and replaced them with a bit of bling.
That awesome wheel and one of the flowers were included in the July Très Jolie kit.


I took some more of the bling (a gift from scrappy friend Dawna) that I used as a flower center and placed a few pieces around the layout.
Next, I splattered the page with Color Bloom mist, not following any pattern, just a little here and there until the droplets appeared all over.
Digging further into my stash, I found these beautiful stars from ReneaBouquets; I placed several among the flowers and then scattered more around the page.
