Hi everyone! It’s Valerie and I have a new layout to share with you today. I’m totally loving the Now & Then Collection. I even think it might have become my all-time favorite My Mind’s Eye collection. So far this week you’ve met Izzy and Dorothy. Now meet Milo.
Supplies: Now & Then-Milo:6x6 paper pad, “Little Things” Doilies paper, “Friends” accent stickers, “Documented” chipboard elements, “Inspired” enamel dots, “This Week” enamel shapes, “Documented” alpha/word stickers, and decorative tape. Other: Silhouette Cameo, mist, cardstock, and Thickers
The Milo palette is full of pretty blues, teals, and yellow. With any layout, you just can’t go wrong with circles...especially a large cluster of them. To cut the concentric circles, I picked four different sheets of paper from the 6x6 pad and placed them 4-up on my 12 x12 Cameo cutting mat.
Since the paper is double- sided, I ended up with 8 different patterns to use—that all coordinate perfectly of course.I used the circles to frame my three largest photos. The two smaller photos were backed with circles cut from the 12x12 “Little Things” doilies patterned paper.
I repeated the doily motif with the chipboard accents and one from the sticker sheet. The anchor enamel shapes are a fun finishing touch.
Isn’t Milo great!? You’ll have to stop by and meet Mildred tomorrow. Had to save the best for last (in my opinion).
