Little Things

Afzan Zhafri

Nidhi took this photo of my nephew on the first day of my sister's wedding last March and I just had to scrap it! :) I mean, how could you resist those folds? And the fact that he has changed so much since then, only make me treasure this shot more than ever. 


I had a fun time with Little Things digital kit from Ali Edwards. When we get our digital files, it's a must for me to go through them one by one. Yes. I open each and every file to make sure I miss nothing. I especially like to see if I can use any of the journal cards for my layout. 

The moment I opened the 4x6 triangles card, I squealed. I have a thing for triangles and geometric shapes in general. My daughters know this too because they got me a gorgeous 'rockstar' clip to add to my bangle for Mother's Day :)



I layered 3 copies of the journaling cards, taking care to leave a little gap between each group of triangles for the 'little stuff' digital stamp, onto my 8.5 x 11 canvas without resizing them. The size is perfect as is. This works because my background and the journal cards are the same color - white. I'm no expert so I have no idea what will happen if you have different colored background or cards. Once the triangles and 'little stuff' digital stamps are in place, I proceed to printing. 

The base of my layout is now ready. I machine stitched all over, added a flair by Feed Your Craft and made photo mat by layering more printed acrylic, gold foiled paper from Pretty Little Studio and cute paperclips here and there. I also splattered some colored mist all over, because I still love splatters to this day. :)

If you're thinking about getting the Little Things Kit, it's still available for a few more days before we switch to the new theme for June (Go) which will be revealed on June 15th.

Such a sweet layout, Sasha! I'm anxiously awaiting Ali's "Go" kit, I'm thinking it might be one I just have to have. :)

After seeing this layout on Instagram I had to come here to see a bigger picture, lol. I just love this layout and how you used the 4x6 cards, and love the stamping and stitching you did in-between each set of cards. Thanks again as always for the inspiration!
