Beautiful Layout for JOANN

Thursday, July 26, 2018

This blog post is sponsored by JOANN.
The 30-page Paige Evans #StickerBook can be found in JOANN stores so I wanted to feature those stickers on my next layout!
I went through the sticker book and peeled off all of the flowers, birds, hearts, and other icons that I was drawn to, placed them on a piece of smooth white cardstock, and then fussy cut out all of the images. This is not a necessary step but I like being able to move around the pieces so this turns them into more like die cut embellishments.

Next I designed a large title to say BEAUTIFUL and cut it from a piece of smooth white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo. (Find the cut file for free in my Happy Scrappy Place Facebook group!) I spent some time piercing holes around each letter (about 5mm apart) and then did a chain link stitch through the holes using all six strands of white DMC embroidery thread for ultimate texture.

On a separate piece of smooth white cardstock I had the Cameo draw an offset version of the title and then on that background piece I arranged the stickers-turned-die-cuts on the top left side of every letter. Every once in awhile as I was adding the stickers I would place the die cut title page on top to see how things were looking. I left the "A" empty for a photo.

I wrote journaling on another sticker and tucked it into the photo frame along with a few more stickers. Finished! Easy peasy!

I hope you are inspired to check out the 30-page Paige Evans #StickerBook along with the other 8 designer books at your local JOANN store or online!
