Scrapbook Layout - Together -
Valentine's Day left me lots of memories to document. After seeing a layout from Paige Evans on Scrapbook.com, I knew that i wanted something similar for one of my pictures. So I venture to create a cutfile; it took me 2 nights, a few cups of coffee, and some divine inspiration (i thank you Juliana Michaels), but i got it... At the end, I learned I still need to learn more about my Silhouette Cameo machine, but I got the perfect cutfile. Here is the link to the cutfile:
|The cut-out was attached using foam dots so create interest in the layout|
-gotta love the shadow of the cut-out on the patterned paper-
All the patterned paper come from Dear Lizzy's Documentary collection. First I used the coral-red watercolor washed paper as the mat for the entire layout. A little bit of texture paste (white) and a polka dot stencil (both from Heidi Swapp) were used to add texture to the layout.
|I enjoy the contrast between the texture paste and the ink splotches.|
Once I had the white cardstock cut-out, i traced every letter in different papers from the same collection, and proceeded to attach them to the cut out using foam dots. I love to see different levels in my layouts. I cut the picture (black and white processed) to fit within the edge of the letter O. After all the cut-out was matted, I attached it to the center of the patterned paper mat.
|A few pieces of ephemera are enough, as I wanted the detail of the cut file to show.|
Once a week, we have a foiling session at home. My daughter and I love our MInc machine, and used it to create most of the ephemera for this layout.
|I used the leftover foil from another piece to create the butterfly.|
If you have seen my layouts before, then you know I love tags, so I found a way to include them in my layout. I attached two tags with some gold thread, and glued the thread as a leading line to my journaling.
|a few glue dots helped shape the tails of string of the tags.|
I enjoyed creating this layout. I am thinking of framing it to keep it permanently on top of my sofa table... i'll update you on what i decide to do with it..
Please help yourself to the cutfile, just make sure to mention my name if you publish it. I would love to see what you do with it.
See you soon.
