Hello Layout by designer Patty Folchert

We all have those special treats that help get us through the long cold winters. One of mine is indulging in a great cup of hot chocolate or a decadent mocha latte. So I had a little fun with this layout, sharing a photo of one of my tasty creations. The papers are from the very versatile new Yellow Saffron Soup from Jillibean Soup and the clear stamp set from that same collection.

Hello Layout by Patty Folchert

 I began with a sketch I found online then I proceeded to put together my patterns. Once I had the combination I was happy with I machine stitched the diagonal pieces, including the kraft paper tape across the top. Next I stamped in black the flowers onto the background and stamped the other accents in black ink onto plain white cardstock and then fussy cut them out to add back onto the page. The “today” and “documented” stamps were stamped in black ink directly onto stickers from the coordinating sticker sheet.  

The photo was double matted onto vellum and then a coordinating pattern paper. After that I began to place the cutouts and stickers around photo as shown. Placing the “hello” diecut directly onto the photo seemed to work well. My favorite part of this layout is the journaling, it makes me smile.

May All Your Dreams Come True card by Patty Folchert

Who out there is ready for spring? Me too, hopefully this card will put you in a spring time state of mind. These papers are from the vibrant new Jillibean Soup/Yellow Saffron Soup collection and a Hampton Art Vintologie stamp and stencil set. 

May All Your Dreams Come True card by Patty Folchert

The card base pairs up a trendy teal paper and golden polka dot paper both from Yellow Saffron Soup collection. They were added to the card base with adhesive then using my sewing machine with brown thread I added the stitching. Next
using a cutout from the Soup Staples III Bite Size bit sheet I created the center panel with a bicycle stamp in brown ink. Then I stamped the sentiment onto Kraft Triangles paper in brown ink and added to cutout piece diagonally as shown with foam dots. Then I added a die-cut flower from the Pea Pods set and a blue gemstone.

It still needed something, hmmm maybe some super fun enamel stars? Yes, that was it- perfect finishing touch. Love the idea of collecting stars on a bike ride, magical I think. Actually this is really a very versatile card to have in your stash and would work for several different occasions.
