Gossamer Blue: Hooray for 3

Good morning! Today I wanted to share one last layout with the December Gossamer Blue kit and it's the two-page layout I created this month! Birthdays are probably one of my family’s most photographed events – we can easily take hundreds of photos to mark the occasion. Going through so many photos can be daunting but two-page layouts can be the perfect way to showcase a lot of those photos. The colors in this month’s kit matched perfectly to the tea party themed birthday the girls had nearly two years ago for their 3rd birthday. I have documented a lot of their birthday photos already but I had not yet created a layout of them opening their gifts.

I am just in love with Basic Grey’s RSVP collection – the die-cuts and transparency pack is a favorite. There are so many options to embellish with them – here I used the “Hooray” die-cut as part of my title. These can be found in Add-on Kit #2 this month.

I cut the “3″ out using my Cameo with the Carta Bella patterned paper. I adhered the Allison Kreft transparency (from the Main Add-on Kit) behind the cut-out.

On the second page, I used a couple of the exclusive Life Pages 4×6 and 3×4 cards behind my photos. I love how well these coordinate every month!

Finally, the wood veneer card was used as a photo mat. A key to using the large cards is to adhere with a very strong adhesive so it won’t bend.

I am very much looking forward to 2014 - how about you?! 2013 wasn't exactly the greatest of years in my life for a variety of reasons and I always look forward to a fresh start. 

Happy New Year! :)
