Love Begins Here Layout by Zsoka Marko

Friday, October 22, 2021

 Hi there friends, Zsoka Marko stopping by today to share a new layout with you that I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team! I've used Paige's newest, gorgeous collection, Bungalow Lane. Since this is a fall-themed collection, I wanted to make a layout with some kind of fall element to it, like leaves for instance. I haven't taken any photos yet this fall, so I went with a summer photo.

Lucky for me, all the colors that are in my picture are also available in Bungalow Lane - so basically I just pulled out all patterned papers that matched my photo. I then resized Paige's Large Leaf cut file to have a variation of sizes (I believe I had 3 or 4 different sizes) and die cut a bunch of leaves from each patterned paper I selected. I cut two layers for each of my leaves. I then glued the two layers together with a little liquid glue in the middle since I wanted to stitch down the middle with my sewing machine. I bent up the edges of the leaves to give them dimension.

Using one of our smaller dinner plates as a template, I fussy cut out a circle from textured white cardstock. This might have been quicker with my Cameo, but I didn't think of it when I cut my leaves and then later I was too lazy to go upstairs again haha! Hence old school tools! I adhered the white circle in the middle of my page then I roughly arranged the leaves around it. Once I was happy with how it looked, I started gluing them down to create a wreath.

I layered tissue paper behind my photo as well as a few Ephemera Die Cuts on both sides. I added foam tape as well because I adhered the picture on top of the leaves. By the way, I flattened out and glued down the leaves that were under my photo, just so I didn't have as much dimension. I then went through all of the embellishments and picked out some that went with my color scheme: Cardstock StickersChipboard StickersFoam Stickers, and Ephemera Die Cuts. I stamped the date on a label sticker from the 8-Page Sticker Book and partially tucked it in behind my photo. I added a decorative border Cardstock Sticker at the bottom, as well as my journaling and title. For the title I used one of the larger Foam Stickers. I placed some scalloped Chipboard Stickers on the opposite side at the top to create a more balanced overall design.

That's it for today! I hope I could inspire you in some small way! Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome day!
