True Friends - A Scraplift using the More than Words collection

Hey everyone, it's Raquel here sharing my layout from Scraplift week over on the CVS blog. I spent some time looking back through posts on the CVS blog and could not go past this post and layout by Mandy. I loved the design of the page with that die cut title and the way that the embellishments flow from the top left of the page to the bottom right. It is just so beautiful.

Here is my interpretation of Mandy's page:

I thought I would pop Mandy's layout up here so you can see directly how her layout has inspired me, here it is:


The subject of my layout is friendship also and I chose to document a friendship I have had for 29 years now (I did some calculations while creating this page). You may recognise the other face in my layout? Yep, thats fellow DT member Michelle. We actually met in Grade Prep and have been friends ever since! I thought More than Words was a gorgeous, soft collection to document this layout.


The title was something that I really loved about Mandy's original page. So I used my silhouette cameo to cut the word friends and the word 'true' was from a previous CVS collections alpha stickers. You may also notice the subtle texture I used on the page. I used a light molding paste and a floral stencil to add a soft texture to the page, on a diagonal. I am not one to use a lot of mixed media, unlike the page I am scrap lifting, so I chose the molding paste as my way to incorporate it.


The top left of the original layout contained a cluster. I used both the ephemera die cuts and vellum ephemera to create this, as well as the accessory stickers too.


I could not leave this page without adding some journaling. Documenting the story of Michelle and I's friendship is important and one that I want to make sure I tell the story of. I love to type my journaling and cut it out in strip form as it allows me to place the journaling wherever I want without committing right away.

  Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
