1st Birthday Layout by Virginia Walker

Sunday, December 9, 2018

Hello everyone! Virginia Walker here with a new layout for you today featuring Whimsical and the Frame cut file!
I started this page with no real direction, in fact, I simply sat down and fussy cut some florals from one of the patterned papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad. It did not take long to cut the entire sheet and the time it took gave me a chance to think about the type of page I’d like to create. I was drawn to the different shades of pink that run throughout Whimsical so I decided to feature all of the various shades, along with other colors too of course!

I chose the gorgeous Frame cut file from Paige and cut it from one of the dark pink patterned papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad. I chose the B-side of Paper 01 for my background, it is a softer shade of pink and coordinated beautifully. Because I had already fussy cut a bunch of florals most of the work was done for me. I added some foam behind my cut file to give it dimension and it also provided places for me to then tuck the florals into.

I overlapped and tucked all of my florals around and inside the frame making sure I had an even coverage of each color around my layout. I added just a few layers of patterned paper from the 6x6 Paper Pad behind my photo and tucked this inside the frame amongst the flowers. To add different texture to the layout I added a few Chipboard Sticker hearts, flowers, and leaves as well as a few florals from the Sticker Book.

My title was created using a combination of a sticker from the Chipboard Stickers and the super cute pink Foam Mini Thickers. I absolutely love the focus on all the various shades of pink on this layout but it needed a touch of white so I tore the bottom left corner of my patterned paper and added white cardstock behind it. I was going to stitch this to add some detail but decided this was the perfect place to use some of the stitched Rub-Ons, they worked beautifully over both the layers of paper too! I love that Whimsical has so many elements that can be fussy cut from all of the patterned papers!
