Wild and Free Layout by Brianna Lepper

Friday, August 7, 2020

Hey friends! Brianna Lepper here and I'm excited to share this layout with you today! I don't know about you, but I love washi tape and I especially love backing cut files with it. For this project, I used all 8 rolls of the Bloom Street Washi Tape. Here's my layout!
When I first started this layout, I wasn't sure what cut file I was going to choose. I knew that I was going to back a cut file with the washi tape, I just didn't know which one. Then I saw Paige's Quilt cut file. I loved the design and thought it would be perfect to display all of the pretty washi tape.

To start, I took all 8 Washi Tape rolls and laid them out on my desk. Then I took the positive pieces from the quilt cut file and stuck down the washi tape on each piece. It took some time, but in the end it was worth it. Once all of the pieces were covered with washi, I got to work putting adhesive foam on the large negative portion of the cut file. I wanted dimension on my page and I just love the look of the entire thing popped up on foam. Next, I adhered the entire cut file on another piece of white cardstock and started placing and tucking in all of my washi tape pieces. 

Next, I got to work on my title. I decided on the Wild and Free cut file since I thought it would look awesome sitting on top of the Quilt cut file. I cut it on white cardstock and backed it using the patterned papers from the Bloom Street collection. I wanted the 'and' portion of the cut file to stand up against the busy background so I blended on some Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender. When I finished backing the cut file, I adhered it down right on top of the quilt and added a few floral stickers from the 4-Page Sticker Book. This cut file is perfect for a multi photo layout. I tucked in two photos of my son on both sides of it. I added a few Floral Die Cuts and Layered Butterfly Stickers in a few clusters around my page and then added a text sticker from the Cardstock Stickers.

For my journaling, I typed it out using the Traveling Typewriter font and printed/trimmed it all out. I usually add the journaling later, but it was nice to get it added and I love how neat and streamlined it is. I love all of the dimension on this layout and love how the Washi Tape is displayed. They're all so pretty and these cut files were perfect for this design.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I had so much fun creating and sharing this layout with you. If you haven't tried backing a cut file with washi tape, I hope you'll give it a try! See you in my next post!
