The Cut Shoppe – Happy Days

Hello there! Enza here to share a new layout featuring the Get around cut file and the beautiful Ain’t Life Grand collection designed by Ashley for Pretty Little Studio.

I wanted to use multiple patterned papers from the collection, so the wheel design worked perfectly for it. I enlarged the cut file to the desired dimensions and started backing it up with some of my favorite papers. Once the background was ready, I adhered it to white cardstock with a piece of foam sheet.

As I wanted my photo to stand out a little more, I decided to print it in black and white and created a frame around it with some die cut flowers.

Next, the clusters. Clouds and hearts in the prettiest colors!

I finished the layout with lots of enamel dots that matched the colors in the papers.

Cut files are an amazing way to incorporate different patterns and colors in one page. Visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy store for this and other inspiring designs.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Clique Kits – Yearbook – Out Of This World

Hello, Clique friends! I’m back with a layout featuring the gorgeous May Sorbet Kit. The colors in this kit are absolutely amazing and the exclusives coordinate beautifully with it.

The main inspiration for this layout came from one of the background cut files that will be available in the Clique digital store.I initially intended to use the cut file as it is, but then decided to scatter the different size stars around my pictures and layer them to crate a lot of dimension and texture.

Since the patterned paper I chose as my background is very similar in color to the one I used for the stars, I decided to just use pink acrylic paint to create some contrast. I still wanted my layout to have a soft look, so the light colored paint worked perfectly for it.

Some of the stars are cut out of vellum. I love the different texture it adds.

Once all the stars were positioned as I liked them around my pictures, I started embellishing. I tend to go for a tone-on-tone look most of the times to make the colors stand out more.

For my title, I used another exclusive cut file that will be available with the May Sorbet kit.The Pink Fresh Studio Reverie paper with its gorgeous blue adds the right pop of color the layout needed.

I hope you felt inspired today. If you are not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are beautiful. The exclusives are always so unique! You will not regret it! Visit the Clique Kits store for details πŸ™‚

Here is the layout I created using the gorgeous Amazing You stamp set and the Reflection Scrapbook Kit from Altenew:

I absolutely adore the colors in this scrapbook kit. To begin, I selected a few patterned papers to use as a base for my roses and leaves. The watercolor effect on the patterned papers made the job very easy for me. I didn’t have to worry about coloring or adding shaded areas to my images. After applying VersaMark ink, I used white embossing powder to create a soft edge. Then I fussy cut the different elements and placed them on my layout to create a background for my photo. Some of the roses were stamped on vellum, heat embossed and colored in. I love the stained glass effect you can achieve with this technique.

I decided to keep the rest of the layout pretty simple, with just a few embellishments from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit and a sentiment.
