CARTA BELLA – ROCK-A-BYE BABY BOY ‘Dream Big Little One’ layout by Guest Designer Melinda France

Hi Everyone

Melinda here again to share another layout created with the Carta Bella ‘Rock a Bye Baby Boy’ collection of papers and embellishments.

For this layout I picked my photo first as I knew I wanted a cute photo of him sleeping. Twinkle Twinkle was his favourite nursery rhyme when he was tiny so for a long time I was undecided which side of the lovely ‘Sweet Dreams’ paper to use.

I finally settled on the text side, and decided that a torn effect on the papers was the way to go to complement the cloud embellishments I was using.

I typed my journalling up once again, and printed onto plain white cardstock. I then tore the bottom of the paper and rolled it a little before sewing it onto the background paper. I matted the photo on two sheets of patterned paper with the bottoms torn and attached these to each other and the page with my sewing machine as well.

I added a few more torn strips of paper across the page including one I embossed using my cuttlebug, and machine stitched these down. These provided a backing for the title sticker ‘Dream Big Little One’. I also added the safety pin sticker (mounted on foam tape), some other stickers, the chipboard moon and some enamel dots to finish off this corner.

In the bottom left corner I used two of the enamel shapes, one of the ephemera shapes, and some of the enamel dots.

I created a bit of an embellishment cluster using one of the paper fans, a chipboard sticker, some chipboard circles from the decorative brads pack, some enamel star shapes and a couple more pieces from the lovely ephemera packs. I finished it off with a couple more enamel dots.

To finish off I added some more tags, enamel stars and cloud, and some enamel dots in the top right hand corner of the photo.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this second layout I created. I had a lot of fun with these papers and if you’re playing with them too I’d love to see photos in the community.
