Guest Designer | Yvette Weber

Hello, crafty friends! My name is Yvette Weber and I am super excited and honored to be guest designing for Paige this month! You can find me on Instagram, Facebook, my Blog, and Pinterest. Here are the projects I created using Paige's cut files and her gorgeous collections:

For my first project, I had these awesome photos of my son trying to skateboard and decided to use the Skateboard cut file and the Go the Scenic Route collection to document this fun moment.

I resized the Skateboard cut file to about 4" and cut it multiple times from Paper 21. Next, I selected some of the beautiful border strips from Paper 23 and arranged them and the Skateboards diagonally onto a piece of white cardstock. To create a bit more texture on my page, I simply distressed the edges of the border strips and then added machine stitching. I couldn't help myself, I just had to add a cluster of fussy cut flowers from Paper 18 to the bottom left corner of my photos and then used the "Everyday Fun" Cardstock Sticker as a title and placed it in the center of the floral cluster. To finish, a small cluster was added to the top of the photos using a Cardstock Sticker, a sentiment from the Ephemera Die Cuts, and a fussy cut butterfly.


Since my son is a big Lego fan, the Building Bricks cut file were perfect for my next page. I started by cutting the Building Bricks cut file from white cardstock and then selected several papers from Paige's Bloom Street collection: Paper 02Paper 06Paper 10Paper 22, and Paper 24 to back it. Machine stitching was added first to each of the cut files and then adhered to my background paper which is Paper 13 from Go the Scenic Route with foam tape.

  With the awesome Building Bricks cut file as the main focal point of my design, I decided to add my photo on the left side and slightly tucked it underneath the cut files. A few small clusters of Stickers and Ephemera Die Cuts was added around the page to create a wonderful overall balance.

My next project is featuring the gorgeous Flowers cut file and Go the Scenic Route collection. The Flowers cut file was cut from white cardstock and backed with Paper 13, which was then adhered to the right side of my page using foam tape. With the beautiful Paper 2 as my background paper, I decided to create a bit of a vertical interest with machine stitching and the colorful Puffy Word Stickers.

Once, I had my photo exactly where I wanted it, I started to embellish by using a combination of Cardstock Stickers and Chipboard Stickers. I also added a paper clip from Paige's Take Me Away collection in the upper left corner of the photo, as well as a couple of stapled Ephemera Die Cut tabs from Go the Scenic Route.

For my fourth page, I wanted to create a beautiful winter layout, so I chose Paige's Holly Wreath cut file and her gorgeous Go the Scenic Route collection to document our very first holiday photo as a family. I started by cutting the Holly Wreath cut file from white cardstock and backed it with Paper 10 and Paper 6. I selected Paper 4 as my background and then I decided to add a piece of vellum in the middle of the wreath, which softens the dark blue background paper. The Holly Wreath was then adhered to the center of my page using some foam tape.

My title was added down the right side of my photo, using both the Go the Scenic Route colorful Foam Thickers as well as a sentiment from the Cardstock Stickers. To add a bit of holiday sparkle, Enamel Dots were added to the bow area. I then fussy cut some of the smallest flowers from Paper 18 and placed them around the wreath. I finished the layout off with a few stitched pieces of sentiments cut from Paper 13 from the Bloom Street collection.

For my last project, I decided to create a couple of feel good cards! Everyone loves receiving a feel good card, sometimes it's just to cheer them up or simply to let them know that they're doing a great job!

For my first card, I decided to use a couple of Paige's cut files; the Folk Art Flower Frame and Awesome. Both were cut from white cardstock. Next, I backed the Awesome cut file with Paper 13 from the Go the Scenic Route collection. I used Paper 24 to create a background which was then adhered onto my card base. Add the cut files, that cute bird Cardstock Sticker, a few pieces of bling, and this card is finished!

For my second card I used the Stars cut file and the Go the Scenic Route collection. I resized the Stars cut file and then cut it from white cardstock. I backed the cut file with Paper 6 and used Paper 17 as my card background. A chipboard sticker from the Whimsical collection was perfect to used as a sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! It was a pleasure working with Paige's cut files and her gorgeous collections. I hope you like them!
