Hey friends! Natalie here with a fun layout full of LOVE today. Not only is the photo topic love, but it contains all the things I love - mixed media, sparkle, and stamping!
I then defined the area where I wanted my mixed media watercolor with water and applied my pigment. You can use any watercolors or sprays. I used Kitch Flamingo Distress Stain Spray. You can use stamping ink watered down or mixed media crayons. If you want a sparkly look like my page, I suggest pearlescent or metallic watercolors! Or add Shimmer Spritz to your page! You can also use these awesome Nuvo Shimmer powders. They give a gorgeous shimmer! in many colors.
After the swirled pigment dried, I went back and added splatters with different watercolor shades and a small paintbrush.
I used the adorable new Hey Dumpling stamp set from Catherine Pooler to create my own die cuts. I used Catherine Pooler inks as well in Hot Tub, Skylight, Juniper Mist, Pink Champagne and Bellini. The accompanying metal dies save so much fussy-cutting time!
For my title, I cut "So Romantic" out of silver glitter cardstock using the Heather lowercase alpha die from Pinkfresh Studio. This is my all-time favorite die. It's so versatile - you can definitely get your money's worth out of this investment.
In addition, to die-cut the stamped images from the Hey Dumpling set, I also die-cut some vellum shapes from the Hey Dumpling dies to give some fun texture and interest to the embellishments.
I stamped directly onto the layout as well, using 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation stamping to add interest with the splatters.
I hope you're inspired to stamp on your scrapbook pages! Investing in sets about topics that interest you are ways to stretch your stash, as you can stamp them in any variety of colors, giving a new and different look to your pages using the same products!

Welcome back to the Cherry Blog! Today, we are diving into the stunning Echo Park Magical Birthday collection to scrap these three photos from my daughter's 2nd birthday. I love the bright, happy colors in this collection and knew I could fussy cut lots of embellishments from this one! I used a three rows design (modified grid) to celebrate these photos.
I fussy cut these balloons and these chalkboard icons from the pattern papers and layered them together next to the first photo. I added stars and streamer stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet. A little bit of gold Nuvo drops and splatters adds a bit of fun to this cluster!
On the second row, I used tags and a birthday cake for the cluster, with a “birthday” sticker overlapped. I also added two borders around the entire layout, one with pink polka dots (to match the photo mats) and the beautiful multi-colored plaid.
On the bottom row, I added a couple of clusters filled with these fussy cut decorations, mixing in streamers stickers, and Nuvo drops. I added a few flag stickers behind the chalkboard fussy cut icon, and then layered a “surprise” sticker over the photo.
I hope this project inspired you to try out this three rows design! To see this layout come together, please check out the video below!
