Story Time Layout by Bea Valint

Saturday, June 30, 2018

I want to take a second to say how much of a joy it has been to have Bea Valint on my design team for the past year! She is talented beyond measure, a true joy to work with, and a fantastic designer. She will be missed and we wish her all of the best in life and her scrappy endeavors! Here is Bea's last design team member layout, and it's a stunner of course!
Hello ladies! I’m so excited to be back with a new layout using Paige's Bend Up Butterfly cut file! This type of cut file is something that I always wanted to try out. I love the elegant and airy look of the bent wings and how the colors pop out underneath.
I used white cardstock as my base and cut only the upper half of the design using my Silhouette Cameo 3. I bent up the wings and backed the butterflies with several patterned papers from Turn the PageOh My HeartTake Me Away, and Fancy Free.

I placed the photo at the center, layered patterned papers behind it, and adhered Washi Tape to both sides. To create the Story Time title I mixed and matched Thickers from Paige’s collections.

I've had the bunny ephemera piece and the snail sticker waiting for me to use in my stash for a while. They are from the Turn the Page collection and I’m so happy they found a home on this page. They look darling here and are perfect for the topic of story telling!

To finish my layout I added journaling and dropped black paint around the edges. I hope you like my layout inspiration! Thank you for stopping by! It has been so great being on this team!
