Hey scrappy people, it’s Lisa back on the blog today sharing a layout I made using the brand new Paige Evans collection called Horizon. I really love every Paige collection, but I have to admit, with Oh My Heart, this is my favorite collection of them all. Here is what I created…
I wanted to make a layout where I could showcase a lot of those beautiful patterned papers in rainbow colors. So I chose one of Paige’s newest cut files called Fantastic where I could back each letter with a different patterned paper. I used papers with very small patterns that can almost count as solids.
I started by tracing each letter on the papers and cut them out. I didn’t want to back the cut file in the usual way though, I wanted the cut file to sit on the letters a little crooked. So I attached the letters to another one of the patterned papers and the I placed the cut file on top. I stitched over each letter of the cut file with color matching thread to give more interest.
Haha… don’t look at some letters too closely, the stitching machine is a bit complicated and not that performant and I’m really not the best at machine stitching… 😉 I don’t think it matters though, I love that it’s not really perfect.
I also used a 3d flower cut file from Paige to create some flowers with matching colors. I placed the flowers next to the letters with the same color.
I also wanted to add leaves to the flowers, but using more patterns and colors would’ve been too much. So I cut them out of white paper and traced around them with a fine gold pen. Then I added them to some of the bigger flowers. I matted my pictures on some scraps of paper and added them too.
Since you couldn’t see the word of the cut file ‘Fantastic’ very well anymore, I wanted to include it again. I hand-cut out letters from matching patterned papers, adhered them to white paper, and cut the word out, leaving a white border. Then I adhered it to the layout, adding also the word ‘women’ with tiny foam Thickers.
To frame the layout, I used a few of the washi tapes from the collection. I ripped random pieces of them and adhered them to the borders of the page.
