Scrapbook Layout for Scrapbook Nerd - Mug Shot -
as my reveal week at Scrapbook Nerd continues, I have chosen to work with Jillibean's Healthy Hello collection. I love this collection, so much that i got all the pieces (not the stamp, though) i could get a hold of. The designs are colorful and vibrant, and the can be use for all kinds of projects.
Once I received the collection, i knew right away, that my love for coffee and my fave mug had met its partner in the beautiful paper with the mugs in it. So i pulled a picture from my catalog that features my fave mug for this layout.
To create the background, i used the Road trip cut file from the The Cut Shoppe. I used the heart hexagon to create the background. First I released the path, and copied the outside hexagon. Then I added a 0.135 in offset to the new hexagon shape. I made sure to make paths to the heart hexagon and the new hexagon. I weld the pieces as I pleased, and then went on to back them with papers from the collection.

Once i had them set, I attached them to the layout using a layer of foam in the back of the hexagons (this added dimension to the layout). I added lots of cut-outs, stickers and wood pieces from the collection. The mug cut-out was also cut from a cut file from The Cut Shoppe called the Cuppa of Joe.
For my title, i once again used the Java script cut file from the Cut Shoppe to cut the Mug Shot phrase. I cut three phrases with the same dimensions. I had some leftover foil from another project, so using the Decofoil marker I foiled one of the cut outs, while i glued the other two cut outs.
|the messy look comes from using leftover foil from another project.|
Once the piece was foiled, I glued the other cutouts on top of the foiled piece making sure that there was a little bit of the foil shown at the right edge of the words - i wanted to keep the white look of the title, but wanted to give it some interest-. I then tucked the title under the set of hexagons.
|Even though the title is white, the hint of foil make it stand out from the background.|
To complete the page, I added a cluster of cut outs to the top right corner of the layout, and a few pieces of wood and stickers along the hexagons. I even used one of the hexagons to add my journal lines.

I really enjoyed working on this layout, and it came together rather easily with beautiful results.
I hope you like it, too.
