Hey everyone! It’s Jen today with a layout using the fun, new Kate & Ash collection. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love these papers and embellishments . . . they are the perfect mix of sass mixed with tons of inspiring sayings! Let’s take a look at what I created.

For this project, I selected the elements that I feel best describe me today. I began by layering patterned papers that I cut on an angle and adhered to white cardstock. My goal was to create a banner that includes my photo with tons of embellishments.

There are so many fun elements in this collection that I had a difficult time narrowing down what I wanted to use.

To give the banner more texture, I machine stitched everything in place as well as around the border of my photo and along the bottom of the layout.

Once I was done with the stitching, I added more of the chipboard, die cuts, and stickers to the banner and on the bottom edge of my project. While the majority of the embellishments lay on the banner, I wanted to be sure to add balance by adding a few elements below it as well.

To complete the layout, I added enamel dots and stamped hearts throughout before placing the simple title above the photo using a foam sticker. This project is so fun and each of the elements truly represents my personality, and I cannot wait to create again with this amazing collection. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
