My Happiness | Rachel Dutko

Hi Everyone! Rachel here with another layout to share with you today. This layout was inspired by one of Gwen’s recent monochromatic layouts.

I’ve used 3 different cut files on this layout –

I’ve used the My Happiness cut file as my title.

I cut the cut file from white cardstock, then coloured it with Distress Stain.

I then backed the file with different pattern papers in my chosen colour palette to match the Cocoa Vanilla Studio papers

I’ve used to create a border around my page.


I added some blue and green water colour splodges for my background,
and then layered on the Lattice Grid background cut file, cut from white cardstock and trimmed to create an asymmetrical shape.


I’ve also added the Caite Floral Set ( also cut in white and resized smaller) as embellishments on my page. If you are an email subscriber you would have received this cut file for free. If you are not an email subscriber – what are you waiting for? Head on over and sign up now!


I added some smaller embellishments and some quotes, as well as some doodling and hand-written journalling.

And of course I finished my layout off with some black splatters!

I have to admit this page was a bit different to my normal style,

but I love the softness of the finished page!

we love to share and draw inspiration from each other!
