I'm here today with another baby layout (see Month 1 and 2 HERE) using the new Hello Baby collection AND....and Kerri Bradford collaboration / giveaway. She blessed me with some of my favorite cutting files and today I'm going to share how I used the Thank My Lucky Stars cutting file.
I chose to super size one of the stars and use it as my bold flagplant on the page. Once I sized it how I wanted it, I sprinkled little clusters of stars in the white space, making sure to leave lots of room for the title.
I backed each of the little stars with pattern paper from the Hello Baby collection and then either stitched around the stars or right over them. I trimmed about 1/4" of the edges where the large star was cut and adhered the white background paper to the subtle music sheet paper. I took the large, cut out star and adhered different coordinating papers in each section of the star and then added it over the music sheet paper. Last step here was to stitch around the outside border of the star and then again right over the inside cut for the star.
Can I just tell you that Kerri's fonts, especially the hand writing ones are INCREDIBLE?!?! I just love how it completes my page and ties everything together.
Thanks Kerri and Simple Stories for the amazing designs and baby collection.
