Wonderful You | Michelle Stokes

Hello! It’s Michelle here today with a new layout to share with you all. I’ve used the awesome Banner Trio cut file for this creation along with a CRAZY photo of my cheeky Leila.

To start the layout I duplicated the top design within the Banner Trio set, and resized each piece individually so they were all slightly different in length. I cut them out using white cardstock and my silhouette machine then backed using some pretty pattern papers from the Maggie Holmes Willow Lane collection. SO sweet!

I adhered the banners to the cardstock background using foam tape, giving each piece slight dimension on the page.

I slightly overlapped them all to give a true bunting banner feel. I added the photo stack to the right side of the banners, layered with different coloured cards and pattern paper to compliment the banners

I fussy cut flowers and butterflies from the collection to create a cluster at the end of the bottom banner

And added a smaller cluster along with hand written journalling along the bottom right of the layout. Once all the bits and pieces were glued in place I adhered the entire background to a larger pattern paper and sewed around the edges using machine and thread. This gave the entire layout a boost of colour and helps make the cut file pieces really pop out from the page.

Thats all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by.
