I have used Crate Paper (Maggie Holmes) Magical Forest collection to create this layout of my baby boy being lifted in the air by his sister. Using a wood grain paper I cut the Diamonds at 9×9 inches. Once adhered to the centre of my green background paper I then used the release compound function (Silhouette Cameo) and dragged out some of the diamonds and cut in a gorgeous mustard colour to add a stark contrast. I added them with foam tape to create a 3D effect.0A694BD0-839D-4115-A07D-3DA968151D0BI splattered my page with gold and white paint. Once dry I added two paper strips (mustard and blue), having added machine stitching to them prior. I next added my photo with foam tape. I added a phrase sentiment on my photo (which is my title), a puffy bird sticker finished of with wash tape added on the bottom of my photo (sentiment wash tape from the CP Heritage collection) which I also added some machine stitching to.FAB49051-A361-4F6A-9832-C6EA3B662605

To create a contrast between the wood grain and green papers I added some gold photo corner stickers.D4569E35-61CD-4298-BDC4-E8C419FB6B59I love how the Diamond cut file created a stunning background and added to the layers of this layout!
