Hello PP friends! Enza here with you today to share a new layout featuring a mix of collections: Citrus Bliss, Take Me Away, and Oh My Heart. The beauty of using digital designs is that you always have them available to you and never run out of embellishments 😉 I love to be able to print multiple copies of the same image, varying their size, and modify them. What I enjoy the most is playing around with the different elements to create cut files. Here is the layout I created:
I knew I wanted to go big and make the cut file stand out. I started by importing the butterfly design from the Citrus Bliss collection into the Silhouette software. I just dragged the image into a new document and traced it to obtain the cut file. I was surprised to see how well this function worked with gold colored elements. I had only tried it with darker images, as it seemed to give better results and barely required any editing.
I printed one of my favorite papers from the Citrus Bliss collection to use as the background. To give it more texture, I decided to add some tone-on-tone stitching. By just following the design on the paper, I was able to make the pattern pop a little more.
I backed the butterflies with Paper 12 from the Oh My Heart collection. I think the mix of colors is fun and suits the design quite well. I created a cluster of embellishments at the bottom of the photo with more printouts, this time from the Take Me Away collection. That cross-stitched heart called for some real stitching. I then layered a few more stickers and chipboard stickers, and wrapped a heart charm around the book with some neutral colored twine.
I finished the layout with more butterflies on the left side of the page. These too were printed in different sizes and fussy cut.
I hope this has inspired you to work with digital collections to create fun and unique designs on your pages! Don’t be afraid to play with different elements and find what works best for you. Once again, the beauty of digital scrapbooking is that you can start over time and time again. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
