Hi DCWV friends! It's Jaclyn here today, to share a page I made with the bright and preppy Hello Darlin' Stack.
My kids are now well into the start of the school year, and that has me wishing I could have the lazy days of summer back. Since that's not possible, I've been busy reminiscing through our summer photos. In doing so, I ran across these pictures of my little girl riding her bike. I instantly thought of the Hello Darlin' stack and knew they would be a perfect match - both in color and in theme!
I built my entire page around the subtle horizontal pink and white stripe paper. The text, near the top of this particular page, made for an obvious and easy page title.
I knew I'd need a pop of bright pink on the page and this pattern from the stack did just the trick. I cut it down to 3"x4" and embellished it with a foam-mounted word diecut and a gold embossed stamped sentiment.
The kelly green and gold polka dot pattern is my favorite from the whole stack. I couldn't leave the page alone without sneaking a bit of this pattern on there somewhere. Again, I trimmed the patterned paper piece to 3"x4" and embellished it with a clip and some flair. Additional layers to the left create some added interest and depth.
There was no way I could finish this page without using the remainder of the pink and white striped pattern, which includes a large gold foiled bicycle. Since I had already cut down that paper, however, I had to come up with an interesting way to include the piece back onto my page. I trimmed the front half of the bicycle off, and aligned the remaining piece up just below my journaling. Not only does the bicycle reinforce the theme, but it also creates movement through the page, and well, it's just so darn cute!
Have you had a chance to check out any of the new stacks yet? As this page demonstrates, they are full of fun and coordinating patterns that make scrapbooking your memories fun and easy.
