Hi CUT to YOU fans! It’s Kirei here with my second layout for the month using a fab background cut file called Herringbone which you can find here in the CUT to YOU shop.
Now when I cut this design I didn’t plan to use it as a diamond background, it just happened by accident and when I saw it I loved how it looked so it went from there!
I backed each herringbone row with a different patterned paper from the Pink Paislee ‘5th & Monaco’ collection. For my background I trimmed some white cardstock to 11″ x 11″, distressed the edges and mounted it onto a bright coloured patterned paper frame. Then I stuck down my backed cut file using foam tape to add dimension.
I added my photo which had been mounted onto some coordinating patterned paper and layered it up with some tags and a cut apart sentiment from one of the patterned papers. I added gold thread to both of the tags and then wrote my journaling on to the back of one of the tags.
I added embellishments around the photo using matching word stickers, ephemera and puffy stickers.
Then I just needed to break up the white edges of the cut file as they didn’t pop enough so used a black scalloped edge sticker on each side of the cut file along with more floral ephemera, word stickers and puffy stickers.
I finished off with a black glossy title ‘Love You’ as it was perfect for my photo of my husband and I on a day out for my birthday!
