Life is Too Short for Bad Hair | Nicole Bingaman

Hello Cut To You family! Today I am sharing a super simple single page layout featuring one of the newer released cut files No Bad Hair Day.

I used the cut file as is and cut it with black textured cardstock. For some reason I tend to stash dive while playing with Cut To You files and I let my paper selection kind of guide where I will go with the cut file. Today I stuck with just backing it in pattern paper that coordinated with the sheet I picked for a background.

Because I was telling a specific story that was focusing on a span of time and a personal issue I was going through, I knew that I would have multiple photos as well as a larger journaling area than I would normally be working with. So I kept the entire design of the page super simple to allow the focus to stay on the photos, the journaling, and the big bold title piece.

To allow the focus to remain on those elements, I kept any embellishing to a minimum. I tucked some floral stickers around the photo collage and journal block to break up the straight edges a little. I then tucked in a few banner stickers and then sprinkled some gold puffy heart and gold pearls all over the page to bring in the cohesiveness I was looking for in my embellishments.

I have a process video linked below if you would like a more in depth look into my planning process and how I put this page together from start to finish.
