Happy New Year friends! Dana here today sharing a layout that invokes a feeling of hygge for me. What does that mean? Hygge is a quality of coziness and comfortable friendliness that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. The temperatures are dropping in the mid-west United States and I'm looking to feel as cozy as I can. I picked up the Studio Forty Gaia and Nordica Kits from the Clique Shop and fell in love with the life-like patterns of soft textures. The neutral palettes of these collections were perfect for documenting a carton of fresh eggs that was delivered by a friend who keeps chickens.
I absolutely LOVE fresh eggs. To help convey the gratitude that I felt for this gift I created an oversized title using a stencil from my stash. I cut the letters out by hand and outlined them with a thin black marker to help define the edges.
I couldn't resist adding a pop of color, so I placed floral die-cuts from a past kit around the letters.
The 3x4 Nordica documenter cards are the perfect for framing a wallet size photo. I cut speech bubbles from another card to create a fun journaling spot.
I added a small subtitle under the photo with a sentiment that I cut from a Kaisercraft patterned paper from a past kit. I used 3D Foam Strips to lift the text off the page.
