SRM featuring Bazzill Basics Paper

recently Bazzill treated the SRM designers to a lovely shipment of products from the Grandma's Feather Bed collection so we could do a three day feature on the SRM blog.

and this is the layout that i came up with.....Life is GOOD!

you have noooo idea how long i pushed around these products before finally committing to putting them down with adhesive, LOL. not sure why but this layout gave me fits. tell me i'm not the only one that has these kind of issues.

anywho. i worked it out and everything about it now makes me smile.

this is spidergirl, taken september 2009....a few months before she turned 5. not gonna lie, i pretty much *adore* this picture.

anywho. about the layout.....

i cut this honeycomb pattern on my silhouette about 6 months ago (maybe longer) and it just sat and sat and sat taunting me--begging to be used. but i wasn't sold on the orange color.

then, when i opened the collection package of Grandma's Feather Bed and saw the same exact color of orange cardstock inside as a coordinating cardstock i knew it was meant to be used on this layout.

so i ran it through my Xyron machine to cover all those thin lines with adhesive, then adhered it to white cardstock and trimmed out around the edges. then i used negative part of the honeycomb as a template to trace onto various pieces of the patterned paper and cardstock to fill in some of the white spaces.

the stickers are from two different sticker sheets, shown later in this post. i used the sentiments as a starting point for my journaling that you see in the image below. you can click the image to make it larger.

the background cardstock was splattered with watered-down paint in a darker shade, then layered with dottie mesh from Magic Mesh.

then everything else was layered on top.

the title was cut using my silhouette and the cardstock from the Grandma's Feather Bed collection. the collection pack had about a dozen sheets of coordinating cardstock inside. looooved having all the color options.

and the teal scallop was created using my Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch.


on the sneak i shared the other day, a few commented on the flower. i didn't make it...it was sent to me from Bazzill. they are called Fabric Flowers from the Jaybird Street Collection. i added two leaf stick pins that came from the Twig collection by Little Yellow Bicycle.

the SRM Stickers i used on this layout were from #51014 Life is Good sheet....

and #51015 Faith Sticker Sentiments sheet.

the other designers on the team have done an amazing job at combining their SRM stickers with the Bazzill products. be sure to visit to pay a visit over to the SRM blog to see them all. :)

  4. Love your layout! It sure doesn't look like it gave you fits.
    I also wanted to congratulate you on making the Fiskars design team. I was thrilled when I saw your name on the list.
    Google/blogger hasn't let me leave comments on your blog for a week. Somebody suggested switching to google chrome so if you're reading this then it worked :)
