Smile for the Camera Layout by Donna Espiritu

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Hello everyone! It's Donna Espiritu here with my final layout as a member in Paige's cut file design team. I will surely miss sharing here with you all but I will still be around using Paige's cut files in future projects so I hope to see you around!
For my layout today, I used Paige's Flower Wreath cut file and backed it with leftover Horizon patterned papers from previous projects. I like to keep them in plastic sleeves so I can easily sort through as necessary. I used some from Paper 04Paper 07, the 6x8 Paper Pad12x12 Paper Pad, and the Project Pad.

I used the reverse side of Paper 09 for the background. To add texture, I splattered watercolors and white acrylic paint first before adhering the backed cut file with foam tape for a bit of dimension. I lifted the leaves once adhered in place and added my photos at the left side corner of the cut file.

I embellished with stickers from the Project PadFloral Die Cuts, and Epoxy Stickers. I also added some fussy cut butterflies from Paper 07 which were leftovers from my last layout. Then I mounted the whole layout to another paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad and folded the four corners, securing them with a stapler. I sprinkled some Enamel Shapes from Whimsical to complete the layout.

That's all from me and I hope you liked my layout as much as I do! Thanks so much for dropping by and happy crafting!
