Fresh Air Layout by Zsoka Marko

Thursday, May 14, 2020

Hi there friends, Zsoka Marko stopping by to share a new layout with you today that I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team with the Bloom Street collection and Flower Hill cut file.
I started out by looking for a cut file that resonated with me in that moment. We just went out for our first family walk under quarantine the day before and everything was in full bloom, absolutely gorgeous. So I definitely wanted to use a floral cut file! I ended up choosing the Flower Hill cut file. I cut it from white cardstock with a Silhouette Cameo then backed it with various Bloom Street patterned papers I had scraps of. This is really the perfect way to use up those small scraps!

Another thing I find myself doing a lot when I don't have a full sheet of paper to use for background: go with two (or occasionally more) bigger pieces to create my background. If I'm honest, it's not my favorite thing to do, but I find it practical so I go with it. Especially when I only have one paper left of a certain design - I hate using up my last full 12x12!

Once I was done with the cut file, I adhered it to the background. I layered tissue papers behind my photo, tucked this stack behind the cut file, and glued it all down. I added a few embellishments, though not many: some Layered Butterfly Stickers and phrases from the Cardstock Stickers. For my title I used the gorgeous Floral Foam Thickers. Aren't they so pretty?! To finish off my page, I added my journaling and stamped the date onto a label which I tucked behind my photo. That's it!

How are you guys coping with the quarantine? Do you craft more or less than normal? I find I am not very creative these days. I'm not super sad about it though, there are so many other things I find to do at home. Honestly, I never get bored. Actually by the time this is published, we may not have quarantine anymore, who knows. We are just taking it day by day! I hope you all are well!
