Hi crafty friends,
I'm back today with a new layout I've created for the Paige Evans + Silhouette cut file Design Team. Once in a while I feel like making a big photo layout, often when I come across a photo that I especially love. Such as the one here, of my sweet 4-year-old, almost 6 years ago, staring suspiciously at all the yummy sweets I made for his party...We had a Lego themed party and I decorated everything in orange and teal, which were the colors of his custom invites and other paper decor like cupcake toppers, favor boxes and more. I made orange and teal cupcake frosting, Lego people cookies and I filled a huuuge candy jar with only orange and teal colored sweets. Which is why I went with the Apothecary Candy Jars Border cut file! It reminded me of that candy jar!
I designed the layout in Studio more or less, placed the photo on my mat to see what size of cut file I would need. I wanted the jars to be as big as possible and since this is a rather wide cut file, I had to crop off some jars on the left to be able to do this (enlarge the cut file that is). Once I was happy with the size, I cut it from textured white card stock.
My original idea was to fill the jars with small embellies to resemble sweets but I couldn't make it work, something was just not right. So instead I simply backed the jars with several patterned papers from the Turn the Page collection. I found some that kind of looked like candies - maybe that's just me though!
I hope you like this layout as much as I do!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have an awesome day!
