Scrapbook Layout - Loved-
Valentine's Day has come and gone, but in my case, it has left me a pocket full of moments to document. This picture is one of many that i took while my daughter cuddled the baby (our dog). So i went ahead and build a layout around this picture.
|Simple hand stitching to the non-matted cuts enhances the cut's details,|
as well as creates texture to the piece.
The cut chosen for this layout comes from The Cut Shoppe, it is called Hello Love. I used the 8.5x11 inch option for the cut, and blew it up to fit into a 11x11 inch white cardstock. I proceeded to back alternate rows of the cut with papers from the "Hello Love" collection from Crate Paper. In addition, using pink sewing thread, the inside of the non-matted hearts was hand stitched -i love adding texture to pieces-. Using foam dots it was attached to a Dear Lizzy's Serendipity collection patterned paper that served as the layout's mat.
|The foam dots create lift in the layout, and add dimension to the cut-out.|
Using papers from the Hello Love collection, the picture was matted and layered. The title was created using a simple brush scrip font from the Silhouette store, and cut on gold card-stock.
|A few foam dots help lift the title above the matted picture..|
Since the background cut out is very detailed, there was no need to add lots of decorations to enhance the picture, instead a simple tag with some fuzzy-cut pieces was added.
|The cut pieces come from different patterned paper collections.|
To create a visual triangle to the piece, a small banner and some little flags were added using a paper clip from Heidi Swapp's Memory Planner collection.
|The little flags were inserted in the spaces between the papers, hence continuing|
the layered look of the picture.
Finally, a few drops of black color shine, gel dots, and some lines of journaling complete the layout.
I hope you like it, and it inspire you to play around with a cut file.... See You Soon
