Life is Better With Friends - Authentique Be (you) tiful!

Happy Tuesday everyone. I have another Scraptown Lady layout to share today that I created using the Authentique Be (you) tiful collection. This collection is so beautiful with its soft yellows and greys. I knew immediately what photo I wanted to scrap with it. This is my niece and her BFF since kindergarten. This photo was taken by Maris Ehlers Photography in Hanover MN. She does a beautiful job. My sister-in-law has used her for family and senior portraits. If you are a local follower of mine, please check her out :)

I love the diagonal twist here, something different that gives it some extra pizzazz. Let me show you some close-ups of the dies I used.. In this first picture you can see the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish. I used 2 of them, one along the side and one along the bottom. I love the elegance of those swirls.

The yellow flowers were created with a flower trio die from My Favorite Things Die-namics. I layers 2 different sizes for dimension, adding a pearl in the center. Then I applied some gesso to grunge things up a bit. In the background you can see the fence die also from My Favorite Things Die-namics.

I created these flowers with some hemp cord. They are really easy to make. They help to keep the layout airy. In the center of these flowers are a Kaisercraft Sparklets.

The title combines different fonts and negative space. The banner here is the Fishtail Flags die from My Favorite Things. Even though this die only has the fishtail on one end, you can still use them to cut a banner like this. Just carefully place the cut banner back in the die and send it through your die cut machine again.
Easy Peasy :)

  1. Awesome page! I love the yellow and green together and the way you tilted the design elements. The flowers are fantastic! I'm adding some Sparklets to my wishlist! Thanks for the inspiration. =)

  2. Love this layout - the hemp flowers are my favorite. I like how you tilted the picture and title. I am not adventurous enough in my layouts to do that!


I love hearing what you think!
