For this layout I really wanted to keep it simple and showcase the absolutely stunning Star Light patterned paper. I knew if I didn't use this paper quick, it would get hoarded in the 'too beautiful to use' pile!
I could go on and on about how beautiful this paper is! The darker side is covered with blue foiled stars which catch the light and really stand out.
I didn't want to over-embellish this layout, but I felt like my photos weren't popping off the page enough, so I mounted them onto textured bazzill cardstock and a sheet of dark blue patterened paper. I had a piece of ephemera from an old collection that I cut in half and added behind the edges of my photos so it was just peeking out and I then placed some deco web fabric from my stash behind that to add a little more texture.
I have a sheet of the beautiful Butterfly Printed Velum from Vicki Boutin's Wildflower & Honey Collection which has been sat on the aforementioned 'too beautiful to use' pile... and I decided it was time to be brave and cut into it. So I fussy cut some of the blue butterflies as they also have foil on them which I felt really complemented the Star Light patterned paper. I also added one of the Layered Butterfly Stickers from the same collection.
I finished off my layout by adding my title 'You are my Universe', made up op several different thickers. This is probably one of my most simple layouts, but I really do think it makes this patterned paper sing. And it's such a lovely paper that it can be used for so much more than just birthday layouts!
I hope you've enjoyed this layout, I'll be back next week with another layout using the Oh Happy Day Collection.
