Hi Creative friends,
I’m back on the blog today with some more Scrapbooking inspiration. For today’s share, I’m featuring a new CUT to YOU floral design and a sweet photo of my Miss 13 on her birthday.
To begin the page, I started with the ‘Spring Floral Edge‘ cut file which I’ve cut nice and large using white cardstock. I’ve backed it with the soft peach tones in the Crate Paper ‘Fresh Bouquet’ collection and for something different, I’ve used a grey and pink print to back the leaves in the cut file design.
Once the cut file was all backed, I positioned it onto my page. For the background of this layout, I’ve gone with a deep navy print from the collection. I love adding cut files onto a dark background, it really helps them to pop!
Next, I’ve positioned my photo, I’ve backed it with grey pattern paper and then raised it onto foam for dimension. It sits along the left-hand edge of the cut file. I’m using the design as a base for my page. It is guiding the layout of the page and will really help the flow of the design.
With the photo in place, I’m now going to add in my embellishments starting with the main cluster beside the bottom left hand corner of the photo.
For my layout title, I’ve gone with this chipboard piece that says ‘Love this Life’. I have several photos from this event so it wasn’t necessary for me to have anything specific. I’ll also add journalling to the back of my page as well.
For the other embellishment clusters, I’ve let the cut file design guide their placement. I am keeping them all running down the right-hand side of my page on top of the cut file. For this layout, I really want the eye to flow top to bottom. You’ll even notice my photo is portrait (not landscape) to help keep in the flow of the page.
I’ve finished the layout off with some gold elements including the photo corners and some pretty gold hearts from my stash.
