I love to layer and this layout is no exception. One of the big trends in scrapbooking right now is to add strips to the top and bottom (or the sides) of layouts. It usually consists of unevenly cut paper strips with labels or embellishments anchoring the page together but today, I decided to put a twist on that trend. I used the Fresh Verse cardstock stickers and added banner sticker and wooden button.
I carried the wooden elements throughout the layout, adding the stick pins to the layering and the "Happy" clothespin to the pull out journaling card. The mix of the various word elements (wood embellishments and stickers) just tells such a great little story and ties everything together.
The clear cut embellishments that I used on my layout have a nice iridescent glitter look and feel but without the mess of glitter, by the way. I added a little Stickles iridescent glitter to the wood elements as well. You can see it on the stick pins above and the clothespin holding my journaling above.
Oh and see that photo, I had them printed from Origrami. The prints are incredible and they come with all the details printed on the back, like when the photo was taken, how many likes it got, where it was taken. And it comes in the coolest Instagram box.
