Best Friends Forever with Aimee Mertell

Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Aimee here with you today sharing a travelers notebook-style layout using the new October kit and add-ons! Let’s take a look at what I’ve got for you today.

I really wanted to focus on the new Sincere Sentiments products that were released earlier in the month. This release was geared toward cardmakers, but I wanted to showcase how they can be used on a traditional scrapbook layout, or in this case in a traveler’s notebook. The stamps and dies are totally universal and absolutely adorable!

To start, I created a big, bold title by die cutting the words “best friends forever” from the Sincere Sentiments Best of Friends Stamp, popping them up on foam dots for dimension. I also added large stamped die cut flowers from the Sincere Sentiments Best of Friends Add-on Stamp behind my title in a pretty coral color. 

I added a photo of me and my daughter, a.k.a my best friend, down below my large title with a fun stamped sentiment. On the right side of the layout, I wanted to do a list of sorts explaining just a few of the reasons why my girl is totally best friend material! 

I used the navy blue numbers from the Thankful Die Cuts to make my list, and I love how they complement the colors in my stamped title. To make sure both sides of my layout are balanced, I added more coral die cut flowers peeking out behind the numbers, which really gave the spread a cohesive look. 

I typed up my journaling on a typewriter and I couldn’t be more in love with the results. This was such a fun and easy page! While the Sincere Sentiments: Best of Friends release from Elle’s Studio might have been created with cardmakers in mind, that doesn’t mean they aren’t also perfectly suited for your other projects. I hope you have been inspired today to make a layout about YOUR best friend—human, furry or otherwise! Happy creating!
