Yay, Happy Birthday!|Happy Days|Josefine

Hello Paperlovers!

Welcome to the Cut to You blog today! Today I am sharing a new mixed media layout with you using the beautiful cutfile “Happy Days” A fantastic cutfile that I can use perfectly for my son’s birthday layout.

For the background I used different colors of distress oxide. I used a background stamp to make multiple impressions to create colored spots. I also used a sweet little cupcake stamp and stamped it in three different colors on the background.

Then I place the cutfile on my layout and cut some balloons from different design papers. I put these on top of the cutfile but also slid a few underneath to create a layer effect. I drew the letters for ‘happy’ on some patterned paper and vellum paper and stitched them together with green thread. This created a 3D effect when I placed it on my layout.

I cut the patterned paper to size and placed it behind the photo. With different die-cuts and stickers, I created clusters above and below the photo. I also decorated the balloons with different word strips. At the end I make splashes with all the colors on my layout for a more festive and confetti look. So it really is a birthday layout.

I cut out some circles and attached them with green thread. I placed some of the green patterned paper underneath my white cardstock background and sewed it in place with my sewing machine. I had a lot of fun making this colorful layout. I really like working with the beautiful cut files from Cut To You.
I wish you lots of fun with your creativity and these beautiful cut files and hope that I have inspired you a little with this layout.
Have a lovely day!
XoXo,
Jo
