Hello, 49 and Market fans!
I would like to share a layout I have created using the beautiful new Spectrum Sherbet 12×12 collection designed by Katie Pertiet. For this layout, I used the Strawberry Mango paper. Since the paper’s design is so amazing, you don’t need to do anything to it, although I did add some subtle background stamping with a script stamp.
This is a photo of my son and his beautiful family.
Here is my layout.

The matted photo was layered on pieces from the Spectrum Sherbet Essential Laser-cut elements, Curators, and Spectrum Sherbet Remnants. These die-cuts come in solid colours and are perfect for layering. Using the same script stamp, I randomly stamped on these die-cuts. Another stunning addition to this collection is the Frame Set which includes chipboard and cardstock frames and journaling layers.
I also used a photo wrap from the V/A Naturalist laser cut sheet and a bow and notebook laser cut from the V/A Mango laser-cut sheet. All the edges were inked and distressed.
I then added rub-ons from the Spectrum Transfer sets, leaves, and palettes. Oh wow, these are amazing! I used a Dusty Attic title and Quoted Sentiment.

Spectrum Sherbet has stunning laser-cut elements. Here you can see I used leaves and butterflies as well as a few acetate die-cut leaves. I raised the die-cut leaves and butterflies on foam tape.

The flower clusters are made up of a variety of pretty blooms, foliage die-cuts, and Spectrum Sherbet laser-cut elements.

To finish off my layout I added beads, glitter, and splatters with diluted white gesso.
