Family Love 6x8 Album Spread

Nathalie DeSousa

Posted on July 22 2022

Hello Crafty friends!

Nathalie here with my first post as part of the LDRS Creative team. I am so tremendously honored and grateful to be here to share a bit of me with all of you!

I love documenting my travels and everyday life in smaller formats. For this 6x8 album spread, I am combining papers from the One Fine Day collection with  Ginko Leaves Die, and Floral Scallop Slimline Die set.  

I trimmed my background piece from a patterned paper from the beautiful One Fine Day collection.  Once, I placed my photo at the top half of the page, then it was all about embellishing the page.

Using the Ginko Leaves Die, I cut a few pieces from white cardstock and vellum.   I layered a vellum die cut behind the cardstock one, to add a soft textured look to the diecut.  I used the Floral Scallop Slimline Die set to cut a few of the frilly edge flowers  from white cardstock.  I used LDRS inks (Bali Blue, Dan-D-Lion, Lipstick Jungle) to color my blooms. A bit of foam adhesive behind them, just adds dimension to the page.

For the second part of the spread, I am starting my page with white cardstock (this gives me a blank canvas for my journaling).  I added a 3x8.5" strip of the same paper -this make the spread cohesive-

I am using a few of the  Ginko Leaves die cuts   as an anchor for this page, however these leaves are in an opposite direction from  the previous page, as it helps to bring your eye to the small pictures in this page.  Here, I am once again adding a small cluster of the frilly flowers from the Floral Scallop Slimline die set to the side of the photos.

I love the  Lovely Watercolor Ephemera Pieces, and used a few of the sentiment pieces as embellishments next to the flower clusters. I chose to use  a combination of the Lovely Watercolor Large Puffy Alpha Stickers , and  Lovely Watercolor Small Puffy Alpha Stickers to create the title for my spread.   Finally, I added a few Lovely Watercolor Enamel Dots around each of the clusters and title work to bring it all together.

I hope this has inspired you to use the beautiful LDRS products in your daily memory keeping projects. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Nathalie, XO
