Today is a Good Day Layout by Jamie Pate

Tuesday, November 5, 2019

Welcome to today and a new layout featuring Paige's Truly Grateful collection and Today is a Good Day to Have a Good Day cut file.
Jamie Pate here, and I have really enjoyed crafting these layouts for this blog and diving deep into the Truly Grateful collection. It’s for one a gorgeous rendering of fallish sort of themes and vibes. But it’s also so colorful that one does not feel locked into a particular seasonal theme. Love me a versatile collection like that. Today’s scrapbook page uses a cut file I have been wanting to use for a bit now. Today is a Good Day to Have a Good Day is such a great quote. It evokes a lot of energy and is also pretty generic to cover a wide range of page themes.

This page, using the Today is a Good Day to Have a Good Day quote, was inspired by the right now. I wanted to document this place in time for me personally. The story here is of some random quick photos taken in my work space. There are a few things I want to celebrate right now in my personal life. A huge goal was just achieved. As well as a major undertaking was just accomplished. This page will be part of what I call my This Is Me album. This layout is a creative exercise focused on my story right now. Something that I think we all love to do when we use these open cut files is add in the stuff. For this layout I also cut a Branch cut file out of white cardstock. These white textured branches were layered in among the open letters.

Floral Die Cut was the main embellishment used on one of the quote openings. Then a Puffy Sticker was layered between the die cut flower and the Branch. I like to layer in threes when I can. I think it gives a lot of interest and dimension to these cut files that are just dying to be embellished. Cardstock Stickers were also tucked in and around the quote. I’m a big fan of word and phrase stickers and these perfectly finished off the page for me. Remember this collection also has a pack of sequins in the Mixed Embellishments so I used these around the quote to give the page a finishing touch.

Take some time to make scrapbook pages all about you. This can be a fun creative exercise. As well as a documenting of you right here. And right now.
