Elle's Studio: Stars in Sky

Hi Everyone!

Time for my first official post as part of the new 2018 Elle's Studio Design Team, 
and boy-oh-boy, am I excited!
The January Kit (plus extras) for 2018 have been nothing short of exceptional, and I just couldn't wait to create with them! 
I hope you will feel inspired by my 12 x 12 layout today,

"Stars In Sky"

Oh isn't this something?!!
Nothing like a large, bold title to make your pages 'pop'!
That incredible title, I Love You More Than All The Stars In The Sky, is from the Love You Die Cuts, and is a perfect sentiment for my sweet boy!
As my handsome subject is looking to the right, I have used a right alignment on my layout to ensure visual flow and 'ease on the eye' from a design aesthetic. 
You'll spy those gorgeous XOXO 6 x 6 Paper Stack papers lining the right side of my layout. 
To give the appearance of 12 inch papers, I have used the patterns where you don't really notice the 'join' at the 6 inch mark. Stripes and simple patterns are best for this option. I have also distracted away from the paper join by partially covering it with the cotton floss (from my stash) and paper layers from my photo cluster.  
And while we're talking papers, how good is that color combination?!! 

Here's a closer look......

Crisp, fresh and contemporary! 
The mint, red & white really allow that bold black title to be a standout feature. To add further emphasis, I applied foam tape to my title creating dimension & interest.

I use more of the 6 x 6 Paper Stack papers to layer beneath my photo, as well as cards, die cuts and labels from the January Kit. 

I embellish my photo cluster with Star Chipboard Stickers, Hugs & Kisses Puffy Stickers and a Love You Die Cuts subtitle, My #1. So many lovely layers and details here! 

As my layout is totally inspired by my darling and that title, it seemed only fitting to feature hearts and stars in my background. I took inspiration from Nursery decor, and created a 'mobile' look with sewn lines, Enamel Dots (Family Fun Collection), Star Chipboard Stickers and die cut hearts from the January Kit and Love You Die Cuts. 

I just love how this turned out! So simple and yet, oh so striking!

Beautiful photo, beautiful products = layout bliss!

And there you have it!
My inspirational layout you to get creating with our January Kit!
