Envelope Leaves Layout by Ashley Neu

Friday, September 23, 2022

Hi friends! Ashley Neu back for the Paige Evans Cut File Design Team! Today I am sharing a layout using Paige’s brand new collection, Garden Shoppe. Paige has knocked it out of the park again with this amazing fall collection and I just couldn’t wait to create with it! I chose to use Paige’s Envelope Leaves Cut File to document a photo of my youngest from almost 8 years ago - time to get it scrapped!

First, I grabbed the 12x12 Paper Pad and backed the envelope and leaves. I wanted the leaves to be bright and fallish and the envelope as a more solid color. To tuck my photo into the envelope, I used an X-Acto knife to cut along the “V” in the envelope and adhered my photo inside. Using a white gel pen, I created some stitching lines on the outside of the envelope. This is a simple way to add stitching when you’re not in the mood to break out the needle and thread! After adhering the cut file to Paper 11, I worked on the title. I used the 8-Page Sticker Book as well as the Phrase Stickers to create a cluster at the bottom right-hand side of the envelope. From the Cardstock Stickers, I tucked in leaves to help fill in the cluster. To finish up the layout, I added a hummingbird from the Cardstock Stickers and 8-Page Sticker Book around the leaves and flowers. I created a floral and leaves cluster at the top of my photo to help draw your eye to the photo. Lastly, I added the copper-foiled foam hearts included in the Phrase Stickers in 3 spots to create a nice visual triangle around the layout. I wanted to create more interest on the background so I used a border punch from my stash and punched the left side of my layout. I tucked in a piece of Paper 17 to finish off the part I punched off. This gives some nice texture to a flat background!

That’s all for me today! I hope you get the chance to get your hands on the new Garden Shoppe collection! It’s worth every penny! Thank you for being here and have a wonderful day!
