Guest Designer | Brandie Adams

Hi there friends, Brandie Adams here from Conviviality Crafts! Find me on my Blog, Instagram, and Facebook. I'm so excited to be one of Paige's guest designers and share three of my projects with you using Paige's cut files
My first layout I used the Zinia Flower cut file. This cut file is one that does not have an outline that encloses the image. I used the negative pieces to create the flower image rather than backing the positive image the cut file creates. I used foam under all of the petals to give the flower dimension and shadows. I then embellished with stickers, floral ephemera, and enamel dots. The patterned paper and sticker embellishments are from the Truly Grateful collection. The flowers and tassel are from the Whimsical collection.
I love sunflowers and when I saw the Sunflower cut file I knew I had to make a mini album with it. I sized the sunflower to 5.5" width and 5.3" height. For the cover of the mini album I cut one sunflower with all the details and backed the center with a dark brown cardstock and paper from Truly Grateful. I also cut seven more sunflowers of just the outline to create solid sunflowers for the pages.
I embellished with patterned papers, stickers, and word stickers from Truly Grateful. I also used several flower ephemera from Whimsical. The gold Thickers and ribbon are all from my stash.
For my last layout I used the Maze Background cut file and I paired it with the rainbow colors in the Turn the Page collection to create a fun Candyland-themed layout. For embellishments I made some peaked flags and tags from paper, chipboard stickers, and the mini foam alphas, and several stickers from the 30-page Paige Evans #StickerBook. I also did a messy stitch down the center line to hold everything in place.
 This has been so fun to create with Paige's cut files and Pink Paislee scrapbook collections! Thanks for having me!
