Today’s layout is from Melissa Oliveira. The details on this layout are amazing!!!

She shared a little bit about this gorgeous project with us today, too.  Make sure you take the time and

check out every detail there are so many beautiful things to look at…


To create the clouds, I hand cut a chipboard cloud shape and temporarily adhered it to the back side of the blue background paper (which I first distressed the edges of) and lightly sanded over the template to create a soft cloud image on the base of the page. I then traced the template onto a piece of Whitewash cardstock and trimmed the clouds slightly inside the traced line to create smaller images that would fit inside the sanded background images. The cloud shapes were embossed with a swirl design using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and my Big Shot. Once the clouds were sanded I machine stitched them and added them to the layout.

The base for the house was cut from a piece of Whitewash that I edge distressed and scored from the back side of the paper and sanded to emulate the look of clapboard siding. For the roof, I sanded a piece of Basic Grey Core Impressions and cut it into scalloped strips then layered them with foam tape onto a triangle piece of cardstock.

The journaling strips were sanded and inked for extra detail before being stamped .
