Hello JustNick friends!

I tend to scrap smaller photos and square them but today I have a 8.5x11 inch layout using a 4x6 inch portrait photo. I struggled for a while shuffling things around my layout then I decided to use a frame with the ability to embellish it so it became the centre piece of my layout.

These frames are just gorgeous! I chose the portrait one to use on my layout (keeping in mind your photo with the heart on the inside of the frame). I resized to fit my photo using a multi coloured aztec paper from the Good Vibes collection by Simple Stories (all product for this is using this collection).

Firstly I created a border to contrast against the white card stock.

Once I had fixed my photo into place to the inner cut file frame I attached it to the centre of my page. I left the sides of the photo and frame untaped so I could tuck embellishments under.

I add the die cut FAB as my title to the top centre and finished off with a cute kissing emoji.

Under the photo frame at the bottom of my pageI added another row of super cute stickers and die cuts from the collection in keeping with the theme of my photo and layout. I added some messy machine sewing to add texture.

In designing the top and bottom of my layout first it allowed me to visually see  my frame and how I would place my embellishments.

I have tucked die cut floral bunches under both sides of the inner cut file frame, I added a word sentiment stickers to both floral bunches finished off with a heart die cut. I played extra hearts over the cut file hearts with foam tape to add height.

I can't wait to use the other shaped infinity hearts frames on my layouts because it certainly added a real factor to my photo and layout!

Thank you for stopping by today and happy creating!
