Wonderful - DT Layout for Paige Evans

Hi there friends,

I'm back today with a new layout I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team! While I'm waiting for the amazing new collection, Bungalow Lane, to turn up on my doorstep, I created another page with Wonders!

This one is super simple and quick - honestly, it was not my plan, but sometimes things just happen...All I knew was that I wanted to use the fussy cut WONDERFUL letters for my title, in a rainbow sort of order. 

I had a scrap piece of this green patterned paper and since my son is wearing a green T-Shirt in the photos, I thought it would be a good match. I hardly ever use white card stock for my background, I'm not even sure why I went with that! I guess I just wanted something light and airy, maybe, hmm. But I couldn't just leave that green paper as it was, so I figured I could add a cut file to it. The first one that caught my eye was the Flower Borders cut file:
I picked one of the borders, then repeated it 4 times and welded them together, to create a background. I guess I could have at least backed a few of them with different patterned papers, but I didn't even think to do this at the time. Guys, it was sooo hot when I made this, I think my brain was fried hahaha! You might even see in the video how the fan that was next to me, was blowing things away on my desk :D Well, I guess hindsight is 20/20?

Anyway, I glued down the cut file, mind you, not everywhere, so I could still have some movement and dimension. I added a few puffy sticker flowers on top. I layered a few things behind my photos, such as tissue paper, die cuts and some stickers. I also attached some stickers and chipboard stickers to the photos. For my title I used foam adhesive so that it pops off the background.

Finally, I added my journaling and stamped my date. That's it!

I guess sometimes all you need is a simple layout to document those memories. Most important thing is that you do document them, right?!

Here's the video as well, in case you're interested:

Have an awesome day!
