The Gift That Keeps On Giving Layout by Virginia Walker

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Hello everyone! Virginia Walker here with a new layout today for the Paige Evans Silhouette Design Team. I used the stunning Whimsical collection for this layout and the Envelope Flowers cut file to document this funny photo of one of our cats, Molly. She is always doing silly things and making us laugh... she's a real "gift that keeps on giving". 
First I started by backing the flowers on the cut file with papers from the 6x6 Paper Pad and the 12x12 Paper Pad and also used some off cuts from various patterned papers from the Whimsical collection. Then I used Paper 11 and Paper 14 to back the envelope section and added adhesive foam to the back of my cut file before mounting it at an angle on patterned Paper 23. I love how all of the bright colors on the cut file really pop off the blue patterned paper.
I added a couple of paper layers from the 6x6 Paper Pad behind my photo and mounted that on foam on top of the cut file. I've really been enjoying creating long titles on my layouts lately and the Foam Mini Thickers were perfect to create mine. To add more color and interest and to boost the floral elements I added pieces from the Ephemera Die CutsFloral Die CutsSticker BookStickersChipboard Stickers, and Puffy Stickers around my photo and the cut file. For a little added detail I also scattered some hearts amongst my embellishment clusters. Lastly I added a few sprinkles of white acrylic paint.
I hope you are inspired to use one of Paige's amazing cut files, thanks so much for stopping by!
