Happy Layout

Thursday, November 1, 2018

Here is my very first layout that I'm sharing using Whimsical featuring the 12x12 Specialty Die Cut Background Paper!
I have a process video so you can see how this layout came together from start-to-finish:

I started by taking the Specialty Die Cut Paper out of the packaging and bending up all of the flowers, leaves, and butterflies. This only took a few minutes and already made such an interesting layout base! Then I picked a paper to back it with and chose the colorful hexagons, Paper 05. I love how all the bright colors peek through the background!
I placed a flower sticker from the Sticker Book in the center of each flower and then I used a sewing machine and stitched through each flower, leaf, and butterfly to add texture and interest. I trimmed the thread ends to keep the layout clean - lots of times I like to keep the thread ends long but since this layout was already busy, I trimmed them.
Next I went to town with the Rub-Ons! I tried to fill in all of the gaps and empty spaces with the phrases, sentiments, and stitching borders included in the package. I added journaling (first with a pencil then went over it with a blue pen) in another of the empty spaces.
I layered the photo with papers from the 6x6 Paper Pad and edged it with a scalloped border sticker and rainbow scalloped rub-on. To finish I added a few more Stickers and Puffy Stickers in the gaps!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and checking out my first layout made with Whimsical! I'll be back soon with another one!
