Dec 1 Layout by Zsoka Marko

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

Hey there lovelies, Zsoka Marko stopping by to share a new layout with you that I've created with the Bungalow Lane collection. As I was browsing through Paige's Cut Files, I was drawn to the Star Layers Cut File. Stars are always good for boys, right? Then I remembered that there's a fun star patterned paper in the collection, so it was decided; I needed to make some kind of star layout!

I resized the Star Layers Cut File and die cut a few different sizes. Originally I planned to only use the outlines and add some layered patterned paper stars in the middle, but I changed my mind along the way. I liked the look of the white stars, so I cut the patterned paper stars in a smaller size. Eventually I didn't create layered stars either - you know, the ones that are stitched down the middle and then both sides bent up? I just glued together all 3 layers and adhered these stars using foam tape, to the middle of each white star.

I added tissue paper to my photo and glued it all in place. My title is just DEC 1 made with the Thickers because I prefer short titles and this photo was about my son showing off his advent calendar on December 1st. I went through all the embellishments and tried to find things that fit either my topic or my design. Well, I guess you could say I also used some random embellies that don't go with either, but they are great anyway, for dimension and interest! That's how I ended up using button Chipboard Stickers in the middle of my stars, for instance! I also added a bunch of star Embossed Puffy Stickers and pieces from the 8-Page Sticker BookCardstock Stickers, and Foam Phrase Stickers.

Before adhering down the big red star, I wrapped twine around it like it was a present. I actually did this with several stars, but it felt too much and too messy with the already busy background. So, I only left the red star like that. I wrote my story on a journaling spot from the Ephemera Die Cuts and tucked it behind my photo. I stamped my date on a label sticker from the 8-Page Sticker Book and attached it as well. Not that I really needed this since my title is the same hehe! Well, maybe the year is good to remember too!

Okay, that's all there is to this page! I hope I could inspire you in some small way! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
