Hello friends! I’m very excited to share two layouts with you today using the gorgeous Indigo Hills 2 collection.
I love the deep tones and gorgeous floral elements of this collection; they are just too pretty, and I wanted to include as many as I could in my designs. When it comes to incorporate a variety of colors and patterns, cut files are my go-to tools.
For the first layout, I used the Flower Heart cut file by Paige Evans. I cut it from white cardstock and backed it with the following patterned paper: Eminence, Gorge, and Ridge. I left some of the flowers as is, so to have the rich color of the Meadow paper come through. Once I had the cut file ready, I adhered it in the center of the page with foam adhesive for dimension.
I then cut my photo to fit one of the frames in the Chipboard stickers set – I love how the colors in the photo match the ones in the collection perfectly! I layered a few die cuts and a sentiment from the Ephemera pack in the lower left corner of the frame; to add more interest in the same spot and draw the eye to it, I fussy cut some foliage from the Meadow paper and tucked it behind the cluster.
I created a similar cluster in the opposite corner, with fussy cut flowers from the same paper. As a finishing touch, I added enamel dots in coordinating colors.
For my second layout, I went with huge flowers. Once again, lots of layers and dimension.
I resized the cut file (ID #26942) a few times in order to create a more natural look. I grouped the flowers in a big cluster towards the left side of the page, alternating colors and sizes. To fill in the empty spaces and brighten the background a bit, I added some gorgeous flowers from the Ephemera pack.
For the photo, I used the same scalloped frame as in the first layout, and built several layers behind it before adhering it down with foam adhesive. You can see the fussy cut leaves from the Meadow patterned paper and a few die cuts in the lower right corner of the photo.
That’s all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I have given you some ideas for your next scrapbook layout.
Until next time!
