This Happened Today | Inspiration

Hello there Evalicious fans! It's Natalie here and I'm super-excited to be sharing my first post as a DT member with you. My layout today is all about that fabulously scary moment when your child loses their first tooth. It's bittersweet isn't it, to see them growing up right before your eyes?


I knew this was a memory that required some journaling, and one of the 3x4 cards was going to be perfect to type a few words onto. With such a huge variety of them in the store, the hardest part was choosing which one, but I finally settled on a card from the Love You Lots packet.


I planned this layout with a certain colour scheme in mind (something that's quite rare for me I admit!) I was aiming for predominantly caramel and cream colours with splashes of turquoise and red, so I carefully chose my embellishments wth that in mind. I picked some of the tabs out from the So Daily packet, and used the badge button from Real Life V2.


But the beauty of having access to the stamps meant I could make my own version of some tags too! I stamped and embossed "This Happened Today" and the "Hello Hexagon" onto kraft card and cut around them. By stamping in my chosen colours they instantly coordinated of course.


Have you been using any of the Evalicious stamps on your projects? Or what about the journal cards or badge buttons? We'd love it if you shared your projects with us in the Evalicious Flikr gallery, and every so often a winner will be chosen to receive some Evalicious goodies!
