Hi! Cathi O'Neill here today with you sharing a layout for the Sophia Die feature this week. All she wants to do is dance! I have that Don Henley 80s song running through my head now! My daughter is addicted to ballet, and as she goes up grades, her teacher has encouraged her. She wants to be a professional dancer and it is great to see her so passionate about something. It is a competitive world but if she is serious about this, we will be here to help her along. (Though the idea of long distances travelled for all of this is something I wouldn't mind not having to do, lol!)
This layout showcases some of the new Sophia Intricutz Dies. I just love the amazing flourishes in the Sophia collection. I chose to use the Lanvin Die and the Stella Die, cutting them out on white cardstock and misting them with Shimmerz sprays.
I used the Fresh and Fun Magical Embossing Folder for the background paper for the fussy cut image of my daughter. I used the Couture Creations Sanding Block to bring up the pattern.
Next, I took the Fantasia Collection Dazzling Doily Die and cut it out of white cardstock. I cut the doily in half and inked it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink using the Couture Creations Sponge Daubers.
I then started layering the papers for the layout, putting down the embossed cardstock first and the lace, tucking the doilies underneath and arranging the flourish die cuts on top. I then took my fussy cut photo of my daughter secured it to the page using 12mm Foam Mounting Tape.
I added several pieces of ballet themed chipboard from Molossi and a few flowers, and placed the photo there in the scene. I got my inspiration for this type of layout from the gorgeous work of Britt Sviggum and really wanted to try it!
I added some molding paste through a damask stencil, some gorgeous script and crackle pattern stamping and bright mist to finish the page. I had a lot of fun making this!
Thanks for stopping by today!
