Oh happy day | Josefine vd Hoeven | Sunburst Heart

Hello crafty Paperlovers, It’s Josefine here! I’m up on the Cut to You blog today sharing my final layout as part of the Cut to You team. I have had a great time and fell in love with these beautiful cut files, but have decided to take things a little easier. I will definitely continue to work with these beautiful cut files and we will see each other on the Cut to You Facebook group!

I started by cutting the Sunburst Heart cut file quite large. I draw the sunburst strips on the beautiful design papers from the Paige Evans paper collections and cut these out with my scissors. I sew the sunburst strips in the middle with gold sewing thread.

I used the distress oxide Broken China for some extra color on the background. I stamp several times until I am happy with the size of the mixed media stain. I splatter some more with the same color and let it dry by air. Then I placed the Sunburst Heart cut file on top of the mixed media background.

I cut design paper to size and place it behind the photo. I place the photo with all the paper layers on top of the sunburst heart cut file. I fussy cut some black and white flowers from the Pink Paisley collection and slide them between the different paper layers.

I’m looking for different die-cuts, stickers and Alphas together and giving them a place on this layout. I love to decorate my layouts with pretty embellishments. I fussy cut a few more butterflies from the Paige Evans design paper and placed them on this page. I make some white splatters with white acrylic paints for a festive look and I loved how this page turned out! All these colors make me feel so happy. Just love it!

I want to thank you for visiting the Cut to You blog today and hope I was able to inspire you with this rainbow colored scrapbook layout. I wish you all a beautiful and crafty day! XoXo, Jo
