Eat Sleep Scrap Repeat Layout


Tuesday, April 30, 2019

I have a new layout to share today which includes a free cut file (EAT SLEEP SCRAP REPEAT) over on the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine blog!
Eat Sleep Scrap Repeat by Paige Evans
First I die cut the cut file (which you can grab over on the SCT blog for free!) from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo 3. To help back the letters quickly, inside Silhouette Studio I ungrouped the shape and deleted everything except the letters, offset the letters slightly, and then trimmed 3" square patterned papers to fill a sticky mat. I ran it through my machine twice to cut all 19 letters in seconds. You can see a tutorial for this process in one of my YouTube videos. I used liquid glue to adhere the patterned paper pieces to the back of the cut file and then turned it over to reveal the magic!
 On the B-side of Horizon Paper 21 (a pretty & subtle periwinkle pattern) I did some mixed media work. I started by scraping white gesso across the background and let it dry. Then I splashed watered down white acrylic paint on top. Once that dried I pooled water all across and dropped & splashed Prima - Pastel Dreams & Tropicals watercolors into the water and dried it all up with a hairdryer. Since this warped the page a lot I ran it through a Minc machine about six times to smooth it out.
 I adhered the backed title onto the layout using dimensional adhesive for shadows and depth. Behind the heart on the top right corner I placed a 3" square photo of Jane scrapping with me. It's my dream come true to have a scrapping buddy! I treasure these shared moments crafting together.
 Then I came in with a new pack of Floral Die Cuts and added a bunch of them color-on-color to the letters using foam adhesive again for more dimension. For a bit of texture I used a scalloped border punch and white cardstock to make two different sized borders and machine stitched them to the top and bottom edges of the title. To finish I wrote journaling with a white pen in the open space at the bottom of the page.
I hope this layout inspires you to 1) check out the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog and grab this free cut file, 2) Join my Happy Scrappy Place Facebook group to get free weekly cut files and loads of ideas, and 3) Pick up my Horizon collection with Pink Paislee and get to scrappin'!
 Thank you so much for stopping by, see you again real soon!
