Die-Namics Words for a Big Feastival

Hello Lovelies. It is Ifa with you today.  Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday ( or Monday or Tuesday...)

I spotted a new line in store that I am super excited about. Have you seen the Die-Namics dies? I bagged myself this set.

I also splashed out on a set of buttons by Fancy Pants. The bonus of this set, it is backed by a sheet of cork effect cardstock which came in handy for my layout.

I printed 12 photos on a sheet of A4 that I then cut out and arrange into a suitable arrangement. I glued them all together, to each other.  This will enable me to move them around the layout later without having to keep rearranging them.

I picked a background cardstock to used for this layout.  Shock horror, I know, it is not a white background this month but close.

I added a few Remember that I die cut from an assortment of patterned paper to the edges.

This is followed by the title.  To make this long title, I cut REMEMBER before aligning THIS WEEK to the end to get Remember This.  And you noticed! I have used the cork effect packaging.

I stitched around the edges of the cardstock.  The wonkiness is very intended! I can actually sew in straight line.

I added a few embellishments to the edges. I also took the opportunity to figure out where I want to place my photos. I actually ended up placing the photos higher up on the layout.

I added the photos to the layout.

Next, I ear marked an area for journaling.

This is the finished layout.  It is about our weekend in the Cotswold at Jamie's Big Feastival.  Did you spot Jamie Oliver in one of the photos ? He is surrounded by a group of girl singers who were performing at the Feastival.

I also looked at how else I can use the dies.  Here are a few things I cut out. I even tried cutting out of foam.  The orange, curved, Remember is one.  I like that I can bend it like that.
That's all from me this month.  See you next ?

Can I ask how you got the frame with the words inside?
I can't seem to work it out after playing around with them?
Thanks Melanie
