I'm back today sharing another layout that I created for Jillibean Soup using their new Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup collection. I have had these photos of Danny and his family when everyone got together to celebrate his Mom's birthday for nearly 2 years and I have been waiting for the right stuff to use with them. As soon as I saw the Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup collection, I knew I had finally found exactly what I was looking for and the colors matched perfectly!
I began with a simple black cardstock background as the base for my page. I wanted to use all three photos on the same page and so I decided to position them in a vertical column down the center of the page. I then layered strips of patterned paper on each side of the photos and then tucked in some of the white photo frames.
The wire word "family" was of course perfect for the title and I was super brave and stitched over it with my sewing machine.
The final touch was to layer some of the Pea Pod die cuts and add some more machine stitching. The layout has a rather bold look to it, but I really like how the black seems to make the photos pop!
