KI Memories - Playlist collection - Go Dogs! layout by designer Gretchen McElveen

Good morning! I’ve made a layout using the fun KI Memories “Playlist” line to share with you today!
Go Dogs! layout by Gretchen McElveen

I kept this one pretty simple by adding the pictures to the center of the patterned paper background and then basically decorating around them. 

I matted the pictures on white cardstock first and then again onto a piece of black patterned paper before I adhered them to the center of the layout. I added 4 black photo corners around the black mat to help keep the focus on the pictures. Then to make the title I adhered the vellum alphabet stickers from the “Playlist” line to white cardstock first and then cut them out with a white border around the edges. I adhered the title above the pictures and added journaling to the left side of the layout. I scattered star confetti and die cuts along with some glitter dots along the right side of the layout and around the title.

When I got to this point I still felt like the layout needed something else. That’s when I added the black & white strip at the top. It added a little more contrast and coordinated with the black & white star too. It was a good finishing touch!

Thanks for looking!
