Everyday Awesome | Rachel Lowe

Hi all, Rachel here and I am so excited to join the team! I am passionate about cut files and incorporate them in almost all my scrapbooking and other paper craft projects. Today I have a layout created using Oh Happy Day collection by Simple Stories. Whilst browsing the shop I just couldn’t go past the gorgeous Hot Air Balloon cut file.Untitled-35Image-1I have used Simple Stories Oh Happy Day collection. So I could add several different coloured and patterned papers to the balloon I released the compound path which meant I could drag out the parts I wanted and cut (Silhouette Cameo). I then added it to my white cardstock with foam tape, knowing I would elements under, it also creates a 3D effect.98BA51C4-0C8A-46B9-A7EF-0ED2234AABC9

I used NUVO jewel drops on the polka dot paper in the hot air balloon and clear NUVO jewel drops to the centre of the bows of the hot air balloon and flower centres. I finished off my hot air balloon with a sweet bird die cut.

643F8DA8-C6B9-466A-9CFA-84F643F4301DI created a layered mat for my photo using several different papers, I added some machine stitching for texture. I added my photo with foam tape. I tucked some tiny flowers in between the paper layers of my photo, a paper bow, my title ‘everyday awesome’ die cut banner  and another sweet bird die cut.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I will see you again later in the month.
