This is Us Layout by Valerie Bisson

Hi there, Valerie Bisson back today for Paige’s Cut File Design Team with a new scrapbook layout featuring the Wonders collection and Flower Heart cut file.

I started by cutting the Flower Heart cut file at 11.5 inches wide from white cardstock. Next I backed the cut file with several different Wonders patterned papers and some from the 12x12 Paper Pad. Then added my large photo. For some extra interest to the cut file, I added a little hand stitching, making French knots on a few of the flowers in matching colours.

After looking through the papers in the collection I decided on Paper 11 for the background and added the cut file with dimensional foam adhesive. When the main elements of the page were complete I added my title with the wonderful Thickers and a gold ampersand from my stash. Next I embellished with Chipboard Stickers: 3 of the hearts and a file tab on which I added the date. I also used a pink label from the Ephemera Die Cuts to add my journaling. Next I added a couple of the Epoxy Phrase Stickers, "selfie" added at the top left and "this is us" onto the label on the lower right side. For final touches, I used the Acrylic Stamps and stamped the various little flowers from the set with Distress Oxides in Chipped Sapphire. On the stamped flowers I added nuvo crystal drops in white, a little dot in the centre of each flower. One final detail was adding 3 of the gold hearts from the Puffy Stickers.

Next time you’re not sure how to design a scrapbook page, try a large photo surrounded by a beautiful cut file that fills the page. Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!
