Scrapbook Layout - Together -

a close up to the layout.

Hi there!,

Finally the kids are back in school, and i have time to work on  documenting so many memories in my albums, especially when I find new cut files available to play with.  For this  project, I am using the newly released "Bull's Eye"cut file from the Cut Shoppe.   Here is a small video on how i created the background for this project:

For this project, I  altered the cut file's edit points to form a romboid shape.  I backed the entire cut-out with pink vellum, and using foam adhesive, attached it to some pink cardstock (also cut in a romboid).  To complete the 12x12in square layout, I stitched the card stock, to one of Dear Lizzy's new Saturday collection.

Since the layout was constructed in a very linear manner,  the picture was glued on a slant, so that it is prominent on the layout.  A few stickers in clusters around the picture just add a bit more interest to the picture.

For the title of this page, i am using another cut file from the Cut Shoppe, "Friends Forever".  I made two cut-outs of the word.  I used a black marker to shade the edge of the top cut-out, and attached it with foam stickers to the other word cut-out.    A cluster made of tags, and ephemera, and the typed journal lines were added to the layout to complete the page.  Here is the final layout:

I really like the final look of this page,  even though it took a few  tries with the cut file.  As always, let me know if you have any questions about how this layout came together.

Until next time,

Keep on crafting!!
