Annabelle You and Me Layout

Hello once again Anna’s friends! Melinda here with you for my final share for the month featuring more Annabelle acrylics, here is my Annabelle You and Me Layout!

Annabelle You and Me Layout

I’ve created this page with the You & Me title piece paired with some of the Pink Fresh Studio “Just A Little Lovely” collection.

Annabelle Acrylic Title You and Me White W 300x300 - Annabelle You and Me Layout by Melinda Sweetman

This page come together pretty quickly once I worked out title and photo placement. Using the horizontal centre of the page to run my photo’s and title along I added a little texture to my background paper, “Around Here“, using some texture paste and a stencil. And splatters, of course!

Annabelle You and Me Layout

Once my background was dry I started layering up my pieces starting with the photos and the “You & Me” title piece. I’ve added in some ephemera pieces, a layered sticker from the Mixed Embellishment Pack and a few florals fussy cut from a pattern paper.

Annabelle You and Me Layout

I love the way the title, subtitle and photos all nestle into one another. I’ve used a combination of tape, wet glue and foam to stick all the layers together.

The finishing touches were some Annabelle acrylic hearts. The ones I used were an exclusive to this years craft day but you can find another set here and another here that work as well! I added in some of the gold glitter enamel dots from the Mixed Ephemera Pack and my journalling. My very final addition were some tiny word sticker strips.

Annabelle But First… Coffee Layout by Melinda Sweetman

Annabelle But First… Coffee Layout by Melinda Sweetman

Annabelle But First… Coffee Layout

Hello and welcome once again to the Anna’s blog. Melinda here with you sharing my third Annabelle feature with my Annabelle But First… Coffee Layout.   Annabelle But First… Coffee Layout

Annabelle But First... Coffee Layout

Creating a layout about myself with a birthday gift totally calls for all the pretty things! I reached for the Vicki Boutin Wildflower & Honey collection for this layout.

Annabelle Acrylic Title But first Coffee White W 300x300 - Annabelle But First... Coffee Layout by Melinda Sweetman

I trimmed out both of the floral clusters on the 12×12 Blossom paper before I did anything else.

Annabelle But First... Coffee Layout

The papers in this collection are gorgeous and I just couldn’t decide on a background so ended up with white cardstock lol

Annabelle But First... Coffee Layout

Since I was working with a more feminine collection and a photo of myself I grabbed some pink Lindy’s Starburst Sprays and Magical shakers to create my background. I applied a quick coat of clear gesso and got messy!

Annabelle But First... Coffee Layout

Using a combination of Lindys Starburst Sprays and Lindy’s Shakers I added colour to my background. I’ve used a paintbrush and a little of the packaging technique along with simply tilting and turning the page.

Annabelle But First... Coffee Layout

 

While my background dried I added a couple of layers behind my photo using the 6×8 paper pad. I also started to work out placement of my photo tucked into that gorgeous floral cluster. My title was perfect to go straight on top of the florals as the white really made it pop off the page!

Annabelle But First... Coffee Layout

At this point I felt like I needed a little balance to the top right so I added some mixed media and a couple of the same embellishments to that corner.

Adding in a label for my journalling and a couple of word phrase stickers finished off my page. If you’d like to see this come together just click below and you can watch my process video! I do hope you enjoy!

That wraps up my share for today, thanks for stopping by to view my Annabelle But First… Coffee Layout ! I will be back again in a couple of days with my final share for the month using some more Annabelle pieces! I can’t wait to share!
Until then, happy scrapping!

Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout by Melinda Sweetman

Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout

Hey again Anna’s fans! Melinda back with you today with another Annabelle acrylics share my Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout!

This one is titled “Sprinkles & Fairy Dust” and I just love, love, love how this turned out!

Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout

I had these fun photos of my oldest boy from July this year with his new “Unicon” shoes and thought this “Sprinkles & Fairydust” title was perfect! So did he 😉

Annabelle Acrylic Title Sprinkles and Fairy Dust White W 300x300 - Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout by Melinda Sweetman

I started this page with a cut file that I had my Cameo draw onto my white cardstock. Using the sketched lines I pierced holes all the way around the design. This way I I could hand stitch onto my background. With the holes pierced but before I stitched I grabbed my favourite Lindy’s Magical Shaker in Black Forest Black and some clean water and got to sprinkling powder and water onto my background.

Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout

To get this super fun look I was careful to not mix the powder and water too much. When you active any of the Magical powders you really do see the magic happen. In all of the colours there is a rainbow of coloured powders that mix together. Adding more water and mixing well will get less of the rainbow look that I achieved on this page. Isn’t it so fun!!

Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout

I continued to add powder and water in sprinkles all around the cut file, not completely covering the design until I was happy with the result. I also added in some sprinkles using some pink and yellow mist.

Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout

After that was completely dry I did a simple back stitch where I had pierced the stitching holes. In order to easily follow the design I flipped over my card stock and did a dot-to-dot with my piercing holes!

Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout

With that big design in the background the page didn’t really need much more so I grabbed my title piece from the Annabelle designs and stuck that down. I added a pocket behind the bottom photo on the left for a tag for my journalling. Then my final touch was 3 of the gorgeous Annabelle White and Glitter Silver butterflies.  Oh and a sub-title using some thickers from my stash. No, I didn’t misspell in case you were worried. “Unicons” is on the box and I just HAD to include that on the page lol

Annabelle Sprinkles and Fairy Dust Layout

All that’s left is to add some twine to my tag and my journalling and then I did some white splatters to finish off. You can see my process in my video below! I hope you enjoy!

VIDEO COMING SOON

That’s it for day 2 of my shares, I will be back again very soon with my next! I can’t wait to show you!
Until then, happy scrapping!

Annabelle You Have My Heart Layout by Melinda Sweetman

Annabelle You Have My Heart Layout

Hello my scrappy friends and welcome to the Anna’s blog this week! I’m super excited to be up sharing my creations using lots of the gorgeous Annabelle pieces. My first share is my Annabelle Title You Have My Heart Layout.

Annabelle Title You Have My Heart Layout

Back in September when I was working with the Bella Blvd Squeeze the Day collection I had pulled out this photo. I thought it worked beautifully with this collection but ran out of time. When I saw this Annabelle “You Have My Heart” title piece I knew immediately I was jumping back into the Squeeze the Day collection and creating with this photo!

Annabelle Title You Have My Heart Layout

I’ve used a lot of paper layers starting mostly with the pieces I had already cut into. With no rhyme or reason I simply cut down all the pieces to rectangular shapes and started layering them. Some were chopped a bit more, some were strategically placed and others had banners chopped into the end. The papers I have used (from background to photo) are as follows Sweet Skies, Fruity Hearts (both A & B sides), Fruit Salad, Lemon Fresh (both A & B sides), Slice of Life and Borders. I have linked to any that are still available but if you want them ALL follow this link to the collection kit 😉

After all of the layers were decided and the edges were distressed I added in that gorgeous Annabelle title piece. Seriously, how perfect is that title with that sweet photo of my oldest child with our (then new) bunny rabbit?!

Annabelle Title You Have My Heart Layout

And of course I had to add another of the bunny rabbits from the Annabelle 2019 Easter Collection. He fit perfectly on the corner of my photo and into my title!

Annabelle Title You Have My Heart Layout

Now I had all of my main elements in place it was time to add extra into my layers. I have used a few of the ephemera pieces along with some of the stickers from the Doohickey Sticker Sheet. That sticker sheet is not in the store but if you pick up the collection kit you will get ALL the papers plus the stickers!

And here are a few more close ups!

Having gorgeous pieces like the Annabelle titles to add to layouts makes the process so easy! I love how this sweet page turned out! To completely finish it off I added in some black splatters and my journalling below the photo. As usual, I have process video for you to enjoy so grab a cuppa, hit play and I hope you enjoy!

Until next time, happy scrapping!
