"Napa" Layout using Graphic 45's Mother Goose

Hello my friends! ♥
Today I have another layout I want to share with you. I used Graphic 45's new Mother Goose collection to create this layout of a photo my husband took of me at the Castillo di Amorosa winery in Napa. Mother Goose is not just for children's projects... you can do so much with the vibrant patterned design papers. I show you exactly how on this layout...

I fussy cut the flowers from the "Ring around the Rosies" paper...

The scallop borders were cut using "Spot on" and "A Pocket Full of Posies"...

I hung a set of the Staples Metal Ornate keys from a swivel clasp and attached it to the metal clock piece... I tucked the Staples Ornate Door Plate under the scalloped borders and added the year "2013" using the Olde Curiosity Shoppe alphabet stickers...

I hand cut a fish tail banner and used the French Country alphabet stickers to spell "Napa". I added a Staples Ornate Metal Key Hole with Stamped Metal Brad. I hung a Spare Parts (Hobby Lobby) charm from the Ornate Door Plate. The blue flower was punched out from the paper collection using a 3/4" Stampin' Up punch.

Here is a video I put together to walk you through this fun, vibrant but simple layout using
Graphic 45's Mother Goose!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! xoxo

I watched your video and loved the layout, which was very well done. In the video you said you would post a link to how to store dimensional layouts. I couldn't find the link anywhere. Can you direct me to the link please? Thanks

I am new to your blog but I am hooked! Your work is stunning! I mean all of it! I love the layout with the Mother Goose papers. I'll be using them on a special album for a little friend of mine who has leukemia (2yrs). You inspire me! I am a new follower and would love it if sometime you could visit and give some feedback :) All the best!
