You Brighten My Day with Jennifer McMurtrey

Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Jen with you today, and I am eager to share a sweet 12 x 12 inch layout I created using the February 2022 kit and add-ons. Let’s take a look at the finished project that features photos of my oldest and her dad from 1997. It just goes to show it is never too late to document your photos!

Supplies | February 2022 Kit, Bright Heart Journaling Tags, Little Love Label Stickers, White Jane Alphabet Cardstock Stickers, Heart and Star Chipboard Stickers – Warm, Gold Heart Paper Clips, Heart Label Stamp, Love Notes Stamp, Sincere Sentiments Wonderful You Stamp, Love Notes Metal Die, Sincere Sentiments Wonderful You Metal Die

To start this layout, I traced around a salad plate with a fine black marker several times to create the base of what looks like a wreath. To add color to the background, I splattered pink, purple, red, black, and gold inks on and around the circles.

Next, I used red, pink, and purple alcohol inks on yupo paper. Once the inks were dry, I used the heart in the Love Notes Metal Die to cut several heart shapes.

Keeping with the same colors I used with the alcohol inks, I stamped several images with the Love Notes Stamp and then cut them out with the coordinating Metal Die. These, along with die cuts from the February 2022 Kit were used to embellishment the layout.

Each of the photos was backed with Bright Heart Journaling Tags before adhering them to the page. Next, I embellished with more stamped images, die cuts, and a Gold Heart Paper Clip.

The title cluster was next, and I used the same piece of yupo paper with the Sincere Sentiments Wonderful You Stamp and Metal Die. This set was perfect for creating the title. Last, I added the date using the White Jane Alphabet Cardstock Stickers.

The finishing touch was adding the warm Heart and Star Chipboard Stickers along with several of the die cut heart shapes.

Here’s one last look at the photo cluster and embellishments. These are some of my favorite photos and I am so glad to finally have them documented!
