Color My Heart : Dare #2

Color My Heart  Dare #2 up.  We were asked to use Topiary, Pear, Lagoon and/or Moonstruck. At first I was going to chicken out and use 2 out of the 4, but then I decided to push myself and use ALL 4 colors.  So glad I did! 

This LO is based on a design found in the Magic idea book called Backstage.  Because I wanted a more masculine LO, I used stars as an element.  I used strips of card stock to create the stripped paper.  That is my favorite part of this Layout.  The stars and the letters were all cut out using CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I did not want the strips to be the only pattern on the LO, so I used the polka dot stamp from D1325 Argyle Backgrounds on the stars and the letters (Pear paper with Topiary ink)

Here is a close up of the stars and the stripes:

  1. Julia, What an awesome layout! Your homade B&T looks great (even better than mine)! The big star is so neat. I love every bit of it. I bet it will look even better once your pictures are on it. Thanks for participating and for being willing to stretch yourself!


  2. Awesome layout, really eye-catching!

  3. Love this layout! I also have boys, so I always love seeing ideas for masculine layouts. I would never have thought to create my own striped paper! Great idea, and it turned out great!

  4. Fabulous layout! I love the color combo and boy theme. I may have to lift this for some photos of my nephews. ;)
