Here today to share my latest American Crafts Design Team layout featuring die cuts!
FAVORITES @ 30 by Paige Evans
Description: I pulled out all the die cuts I had from the Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy collection and placed them on the floor. I noticed a lot of them are things that I love so that's when the idea for this layout came to mind: a photo of me in the center extending out to things I love at 30 years old! PS - there is not a single piece of patterned paper on this layout! GASP!! Although I sort of created my own with watercolors :)
Journaling says: Favorites @ 30: chasing dreams, sweets & candy, animals, rain or shine, flowers, healthy food, traveling, taking photos.
How to: Find the center of a white cardstock layout (6" across, 6" down). Use a pencil and a ruler to mark at 4" and 8" around each of the 4 edges. Connect each edge mark to the center mark with the ruler and pencil to create the "sunbursts". Paint each wedge a different color - I pulled colors from the Fine & Dandy collection. Glue the die cuts in place then hand stitch thread from the center to each die cut (I changed colors of thread for each line to match the color of the paint in that section). Adhere the photo in the center and create the title with more die cuts. Using the Traveling Typewriter font, print out short captions for each die cut and adhere them in place.
