Hello Friends! I am so excited to share a new layout with you today! I had pictures of my son and his sweet girlfriend that I really wanted to scrap. They are so cute together! I wanted to use a “Love” themed cutfile for this layout. I found the Loops of Love cut file in the shop and knew it was the one!
The photo was taken outdoors in a wooded area and Ariel was wearing a teal colored tank top. I loved the natural, organic feel of this photo and wanted to play off that in my layout. So, I chose papers from Heidi Swapp’s Art Walk collection and a dark wood grain paper. I also incorporated wood veneer pieces for my title and embellishments for a rustic, outdoors touch.
I used the offset feature in Silouhette Studio to create a solid base for the loops of love “outline” and layered one upon the other. I wanted the cut file to be more “defined” and really pop off the page because the aqua/teal tones in the cut file and background were very similiar. Therefore, I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added dimensional foam tape to the backside and adhered to the background.
Lastly, I added “confetti” type (enamel dots, wood veener hearts, small word stickers) embellishments around the page in similar tones to add a bit more interest and texture. That completes the page! I had so much fun working with this cut file and just love how this layout turned out! ❤ If you would like to see the layout come together, step-by-step, you can watch the process video linked below.
I hope you get some creative, scrappy time for yourself this week. If you need some inspiration just go browsing through the Cut to You shop. I find everytime I go to the shop, ideas and inspiration come flooding in! Have a great week and may you be greatly blessed!
