Layout - Shine!

Monday, I shared a layout I completed while taking the Bright Ideas class at Studio Calico. Today, I am sharing another layout I made while taking the class. It does not really correspond with any of the challenges (just like my layout on Monday) but was inspired by the video for the class about Titles by Nicole Samuels.

The picture I used is an instagram pic from my phone that I took of my son, Eli, outside playing one day. I love how the light is on the photo and thought it went perfect with the layout. I used a LOT of different letter stickers and such for the title. The paper and cardstock are from the Front Row kit by Studio Calico. I absolutely loved the colors in that kit!  Here is my layout and some close ups:

I first attempted to color the "Shine" with the Gold Lame from Heidi Swapp and it did not work too well - However, it did leave a little bit of Gold and so I added some Mister Huey in Powder Blue - I really like how it turned out...though not what I had planned!

I will try to add links to the products used at some point but if you have specific questions, please let me know...Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great layout! Love the embellishment clusters and the rays!

  2. Lovely layout. The subtle golden rays allow the focus on the bautiful photo. Wonderful design and colors.
