Far and Wide | Backpack Cut File | Rachel Lowe

Hi CTY friends today I have a layout to share using the fab https://createdbygwen.com.au/product/backpack-cut-file/. As soon as I saw it a travel themed layout came to mind!

I wanted it to be bright and fun so I enlarged it and paper backed it with the new collection by Paige Evans Go the Scenic Route. I added machine stitching to add texture and definition.

I added it to a 10×10 inch white card stock with foam tape so I could add elements later. I added two borders to the white card stock (isn’t this heart paper gorgeous!). I then added embellishments behind the backpack, tickets and a packing list, perfect for my layout theme.
I next added my photo (with foam tape) which is 3.5×3.5 inches, this photo is of me in Turkey Istanbul in 2016. I matted my photo, added some machine stitching and then tucked a floral bunch and tab/heart behind my photo.
Lastly I added my title, following the shape of the backpack, I used bright coloured alphas so it wouldn’t get lost on my layout. I added some typed details such as destination and date.

I love how this turned out, and this backpack is so gorgeous and I know I will use it again for different themed layouts. It is a must have in your cut file library. You can shop here https://createdbygwen.com.au/shop/

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
