The Sweet Life Layout for Paige's Pages 18

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Here is the first page from my Paige's Pages 18 class at Big Picture Classes!
I used my Flower Borders cut file (found for free at the end of Lesson 1) to create a large focal element with a twist – it’s at an angle! I’m also using an unusual photo size – it’s 3 ¼ x 10”. Usually I use smaller photos such as 2 x 3”, 3 x 4”, or any size square, so it was fun to change things up and make the photo an integral part of the layout.

 I backed the flowers quickly with colors and patterns from a single piece of paper in my new Horizon collection with Pink Paislee, Paper 03. Papers with lots of colors and designs them are great for projects like this.

 After backing the cut file I chose a patterned paper (Paper 09) for the background and found a photo. I considered using three smaller square black & white photos, but ultimately went with one larger photo - I love the impact and drama it creates.

  Then I tilted the flower borders and photo at an angle – this adds so much interest for being such a little step!
