Embrace the Glasses Layout by Kim Jeffress

Saturday, July 21, 2018

Hi everyone! It's Kim Jeffress and I am thrilled to be joining you here on Paige’s blog to share my first layout with some of Paige’s delicious cut files. As a mum to two boys my scrapbooking mostly revolves around their crazy boyish antics, but occasionally I like to create a page about myself. When I saw the Sunglasses cut file I couldn’t help but be reminded of the glasses I have just begun to wear because of my declining eyesight. I wanted to create a big impact with the glasses so I cut them full size from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo.
I wanted a fun eclectic feel to my glasses so using an exacto knife, I trimmed out the horizontal lines in one of the heart lenses. I then laid the glasses cut file down on my base cardstock and added some 1canoe2 constellation rub-ons and then added a clear transparency on the underside of the cut file. I also added in a couple of gold glitter stars punched from gold glitter paper from my stash to create a fun shaker element to my page before laying the white base onto the diagonal black and white stripe patterned paper from Crate Paper 
I then used Paper 24 from the Turn the Page collection to back the other lens. I added pop dots all around the under side edge of the sunglasses to create some depth and dimension to them.
To complete my layout I added some gold letter stickers along the edge of the lens and tucked and layered some sticker embellishments from the Turn the Page Sticker Book and Journaling Spots around my photo to help tell the story. My journaling I typed using a We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter and added the strips at the top of my layout. I love how all the elements together help to tell the story! Thanks for joining me here today, I’ll be back soon with another fun layout using Paige’s cut files!
