Happy Mail Layout by Elsie Robinson

Monday, September 14, 2020

Hey everyone, it’s Elsie Robinson here with my first layout using Paige’s latest collection: Go the Scenic Route! For this layout I was inspired by all of the gorgeous patterned papers in the collection, and so I picked one of Paige’s more intricate cut files which meant I could back it with lots of pretty papers! I used this fun Mailbox cut file.
Once I cut the mailbox from white cardstock, I started to back it with papers from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I love the red floral with navy foil paper, so I used that to back the flag. I couldn’t resist using the blue floral pattern to back the rest of the mailbox with, since navy and red are one of my favourite color combinations. I backed the post with Paper 13 - this pink pattern has so much texture which adds a lot of character. Finally, I used the various swatches on Paper 10 to back the envelopes that are coming out of the mailbox.

To go along with the ‘mail’ theme, I created a 2x3 envelope using Paper 14 so I could tuck my photo into it and make it a feature of the layout. I nestled the envelope into the rest of the mail to give the effect that it was also coming out of the mailbox.

To embellish, I used bird Chipboard Stickers, butterfly Ephemera Die Cuts, and Floral Die Cuts to add some more pops of color and whimsy. Of course I also had to use one of the postage stamp Cardstock Stickers and make one of the birds look like it’s holding a pen for some cute extra detail. And finally, for my title I used a Chipboard Sticker heart that says ‘happy’ and a combination of letters from the Puffy Word Stickers to complete my title ‘happy mail’.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I can’t wait to create more layouts using the Go the Scenic Route collection and Paige's cut files!
