Play Time | Kirei Baldwin

Hi CUT to YOU fans! It’s Kirei here with my first layout for the month using one of the lovely new Sept releases and I just had to use this one with all the cute hanging hearts! It’s called ‘Heart Drop’ and can be found here in the CUT to YOU store….

I cut the ‘Heart Drop’ cut file in white cardstock and then backed all the hearts with some lovely bright patterned papers from Paige Evans ‘Go the Scenic Route’ collection that I raised up on foam pads to add dimension as I love that on my layouts!

Then I added pink, orange and turquoise paint to my background as I wanted the cut file to stand out from the plain white cardstock. To add my colours I used the packaging technique, drying with a heat gun between colours so they didn’t blend into each other, and then finished off with lots of paint splatters flicked with a small paintbrush.

I attached my white cardstock background to a coordinating patterned paper frame and then stitched around the edge with pink and turquoise thread.  

My two photos are mounted on patterned paper and then stuck down to the top of the cut file using foam pads on the top edge only. I tucked in some matching ephemera around the photos.

I added some chipboard and enamel hearts to echo the hearts in the cut file, and some butterflies from the matching ephemera.

To finish off I added a title using the bright matching alpha and some journaling.
