Light it Up!

Shine a spotlight on a bright spot in your life like Laina did in her arresting layout. Patriotic colors paired with shiny gold and silver and neutral kraft can’t help but to catch your eye. Laina used an image from the Watt’s Up? stamp set to create a pattern repeat block, used die cut inlays to create the chevron block, and layered a die cut border over a matching paper strip for a cool tone-on-tone textural element. An embellishment created with the Lightbulb Die-namics truly highlights the journaling block. There’s so much to love about this stellar design!


Did you notice that Laina created a 12×12 sketch but adapted it to an 8.5 x 11″ layout? Sketches are endlessly adaptable! The sketch provided would work wonderfully for a card as well. If you’re inspired to create something wonderful with this starting point, make sure to tag us if you share – we always love seeing what you’ve been up to with MFT products :)

    What a great page, Laina! Subtle, yet bright, and I think your son’s confidence shines right through his photo. Ü
