Hi guys! Oh I just have to tell you how excited I am to show you today's layout! The photos are from the Beauty and the Beast show at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and I have chosen some fantastic products to go along with. Have a look at my process here:
Ok, here is the layout with photos and journaling cards which I created using products from Sahlin Studio Project Mouse, namely the Princess and Fantasy collections:
I decided to add my Maggie Holmes Bloom transparency in between this layout. So I have two photos of the completed layout:
I don't even know where to begin! I guess I will just show you around the layout as usual, but I admit this is no ordinary layout! I began this title card in Photoshop (I use the Cloud version) and brought in the patterned paper, hearts, and bracket. I created a mask using the bracket so there was a place for text or embellishments, then I added a drop shadow, and then I added the word sentiment. All of those elements are available from Sahlin Studio Project Mouse, and The Lilypad.
Under that card are two 3x4 cards with added embellishments.
I couldn't help but add just the tiniest touches to the photos of the show. Every scene was so beautiful, and my camera captured the stage amazingly well (these were taken with a Canon T3 with a kit lens).
This 4x6 card is another one I made myself using just a tiny strip of the patterned paper and some simple lines. I only added a tiny strip of glitter tape and my journaling.
I thought it would be cute to use the Princess Checklist card to create a checklist of some of my favorite characters. Don't worry, all the beloved characters in the movie appeared in the show, and they did not disappoint!
There were several banners in the Maggie Holmes Bloom collection, this one in the cardstock stickers, so I repeated those in several places on the layout.
Here is a look at this side of the layout one more time:
I love how the colors of this transparency coordinate so beautifully with the colors on the stage and in the costumes, plus it ties in the gold glitter. I seriously love transparencies and use them every year in my December Dailies, and I try to incorporate them into my other albums as well. This seemed like a great opportunity to use this one!
It is somewhat challenging to photograph transparencies, so forgive the imperfect photos. Hopefully you can see how I added a vellum banner from the Project Mouse Princess kit. Layered on that are some word strips and a chipboard flower. When you turn the page you will find the back of the chipboard flower that has been embossed with gold and layered with a floral die cut.
For the left hand side of the layout, I created this journaling card again in Photoshop, printed it out, and then embellished on top. I am particularly in love with these hexagons! They became great layering elements for other little bits and bobs.
More 3x4 cards and layered embellishments here, and a few stamped s sentiments. The roller stamp I used is from Maggie Holmes' Shine collection. Definitely a favorite stamp here!
On this photo I layered the XO banner with a glitter leaf! I wanted to repeat the glitter around the page, you know, because glitter.
Ah, these photos just make me so happy! I remember taking them and imagining the layout I wanted to create, so I kept the drapes in the frame. This glittered label is perfect right here!
More glitter, and a chipboard frame here, layered together. I also repeated the bracket and hearts on this filler card, and then layered labels and stamps on top. I love this so much!
One last photo and a banner layered with a glittered leaf and gold word sticker. Check out the concerned characters in the frame - this was the scene where Beast was pitching his temper!
Here isone more look at the right hand side of the layout:
Oh you guys, this might be one of my absolute favorite layouts ever! It all came together so much prettier than I could have ever imagined! I do hope you will let me know in the comments what you think. Thanks so much for following along!
