Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook and Cards Today - Cut File Guest Designer - SWEET -
I am so excited to share with you all this new project!
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine about guesting as a designer for their monthly cut file release. Upon receiving the file, i used it to cut a few different designs from white card stock (you will see the rest of the designs pop in this blog in the next few days!)
I pull the beautiful Simple Stories Faith collection for this layout, and chose to pick just the cool color palette of the collection - yellow, blue, teal and green-. Using foam adhesive i backed the flowers and leaves in the cut out.
Next I chose to use a large picture of my sister and nephew (a few days after he was born), I made sure that the picture would fit within the circle. My idea was to use the picture inside the ring, but instead I chose to leave one of the corners out of the ring. This gave me space to embellish the corner, and take advantage of the light in the picture. I wrote my journal in the tag, and glued a small envelope to the layout,so the tag can slide in and out).
I bought each of the new Bella Blvd, Acrylic pieces, and used it to create the title in this page. A few stickers, and fussy cut elements complete the title.
To finish the page, I added a few extra of this flowers to cover the original design that was included in the patterned paper. Though a few of the pink flowers are showing, the page still has a balance of masculinity due to the color combo. Here is the final layout:
I love this page, it is the perfect image for the miracle my nephew is, and the love my sister has for the little. I am so thankful to Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine, and Nicole Nowosad for having featured me in the blog.
Stop by Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine blog to pick a copy of the cut file. I look forward to see your takes on the cut file.
