Today I am honored to be guest designing for Artful Delight! Using their April kit and sketch, I’ve created the layout above. It’s a photo of my parents on their honeymoon in the Pocono Mountains in June 1965. Aren’t they darling together?
I wanted to create a look reminiscent of 1960s decor, so I designed a simple linked-circles background that I cut out of wood grain paper (using my trusty Silhouette Cameo) and then tucked everything in and around it. I also sprinkled those tiny hearts—the ones left over from punching the top border strip—across the page diagonally, which put a sunny finishing touch on this fun page about part of my parents’ love story.
Thank you to Artful Delight for asking me to be their April guest designer. I look forward to sharing a few more projects throughout the month using their beautiful April kit.
