Hello Pebbles fans! Terhi Koskinen here to inspire you with another baby-themed layout. Let’s continue the fun journey with cut files too! A week ago, I was here talking about sewing cut files onto scrapbook layout. Today we’ll keep talking about cut files with another idea on mind.
The large butterfly cut file is from Paige Evans’ Facebook group called ‘Paige Evans – Happy Scrappy Place‘ where Paige herself is sharing inspiration, hosting challenges and sharing free cut files every week. You can cut the butterfly as a teeny tiny small embellishment or make it a focus point on a layout like I did.
I actually cut it twice. First I cut it with all the holes and details. Next, I cut just the outer edge and glued these two on top of each other. This is definitely the easiest and quickest way to get familiar with the backing technique. If you want to take this technique to the next level, back the holes separately with different patterned papers – time consuming but SO worth it!
This tender and sweet layout wasn’t right spot for heavy mixed media, but I wanted to have something small on the background. That’s why I ended up cutting small triangles. To begin, I first cut a piece of patterned paper to 2″ square, then cut it half on the diagonal. I used these triangles here and there, adhering each one in place with foam tape to make more dimension.
If you look very close, you can spy a couple of golden spots here and there. I love using watercolors and mists (or actually any liquid media) to give the perfect touch to all my layouts. For this layout, the gold color was a good choice as the title is golden as well.
Small butterflies, flowers, blooms and leaves are both from the ‘Night Night’ ephemera pack and sticker sheet. The stickers are flat, so I repeated the foam tape trick to make them pop up.
After this baby girl page, I’m inspired to do another with a boy theme! Fortunately my sister has a boy, so I’m off to search for the perfect baby boy pictures from her drawers. Can’t stop loving ‘Night Night’!
Hope you are inspired, and thank you so much for stopping by today!
