Hi there everyone! Can you believe October is half way over?? This Fall is flying by and I am still scrapping summer photos! At Scrapbook Circle yesterday, my Designer's Choice LO featured the awesome digital cut file from the‘Mix Tape’ kit as a starting point.
I enlarged the file to 12×12 and cut it out of white cardstock, then trimmed it down so have a tiny border of kraft cardstock along the side. This also helped me line up the patterned paper to back of the negative space from the cut phrases. I used this file from the beginning, but ended up using one of the positive cuts, the ‘enjoy,’ for a title on another project.
Saving the cut outs gives me a great second use out of that paper too! Plus the size of the phrases are a the perfect size for using the Dear Lizzy 6×6 pad that is part of ‘Playlist’ Add-on. I used a couple other of the cut files and water colored them to match the patterned paper underneath. I machine stitched through the phrases and around the outside border.
Adding a few of the gorgeous Pink Paislee washi strips around the edges of the photo and combining them with some of the other sticker embellishments finished up the page.
This is a great way to use 6×6 papers and to use lots of patterns and colors but in a way that isn’t so overly stimulating that it takes away from the photo and story. Thanks for stopping by the blog today and have an amazing day!
