Hello sweet crafty friends its Michelle here today. Have you heard the news about our EXCLUSIVE, fun and 100% FREE cut files to compliment the brand new Happiness collection? Our fellow DT member Gwen has designed these especially for all of you to create magic with. How awesome is that!
Here’s what I’ve created using the wreath, large floral and open hearts designs. SO FUN!
When I first saw this stunning cut file set I was instantly drawn to the wreath design and felt it would work so well with the SO FRESH paper (bright floral wreath). Using my silhouette software I increased the size of the cut file design to fit the dimensions of the bright floral wreath and cut it out on some white cardstock. I adhered the cut piece to the pattern paper using some foam tape for slight dimension, because we all know I just can’t create a flat layout to save myself! HAHA
I also used the larger floral piece and open hearts design from the cut file set to finish the remainder of the wreath. I backed the florals using pieces of MEADOW and EXPRESSIVE papers and some vellum for the leaves. I added more foam tape to the backs of these pieces and adhered them to the top left and bottom right of the wreath before adding a photo to the bottom of the layout.
This sweet girl has a love hate relationship with the camera but photos like this mean the world to us. Sweet innocent Leila, who on that very day had just turned 8. Time flies so so fast!
I added my title to the top left floral piece using a sticker, cardstock title piece and letter stickers from a past collection. Above this I added a butterfly and floral from the ephemera pack, an open heart cut file piece and a couple of clear stickers to add an extra ‘splash to the mixed media feel that the wreath paper has. Those coloured splatters – all part of the wonderful printed design (the gold ones are splattered by me)
I’ve used pieces of the EXPRESSIVE, SO FRESH and FRAME OF MIND papers behind the photo, and a couple more ephemera pieces in a mini cluster to the right.
