Let's Teach Layout by Kim Jeffress

Saturday, November 3, 2018

Hi everyone! It's Kim here, happy Saturday to you all! I am thrilled to be sharing another new layout today made with one of Paige's cut files. I love using large photos to make a dramatic impact on a page and when I saw the Leaf Wreath cut file I knew it would be the perfect complement to my large circular photo.
I began with that beautiful striped patterned paper from Heidi Swapp and trimmed a white piece of American Crafts cardstock as a layer over the top. I then took another piece of white cardstock and cut the Leaf Wreath cut file with my Silhouette Cameo. I adhered my photo to the white cardstock then carefully added my Leaf Wreath around the photo.

I then used my sewing machine and added some stitching around the cut file, stitching through the center of the leaves. I was able to lift the sides of the leaves up slightly for some dimension and shadow. I then took some of the butterflies from the Turn the Page Chipboard Stickers and Sticker Book and those pretty butterflies from Jen Hadfield for Pebbles to accentuate my wreath. I lifted up the wings of the butterflies for some extra dimension.

I added a couple of floral die cuts from the Turn the Page Journaling Spots as well as the 30-page Paige Evans #StickerBook to finish off the wreath. To complete my layout I added some glitter stickers from Heidi Swapp for my title. I love how soft and feminine my layout is. I will definitely be trying this technique again!
