Sweet Dreams Layout by Ashley Neu

Sunday, January 22, 2023

Hello friends! Ashley Neu here to share my next project for the Paige Evans Cut File Design Team! I used this adorable Gnome from the 14 Valentine Cut Files along with Paige's Garden Shoppe collection to get started.
The theme of this layout is a sleepy Gnome all ready for bed. The original cut file had a heart attached between the hands but I wanted to add a teddy bear. I added a combination of liquid adhesive and foam adhesive to back the cut file and used Paper 1Paper 17Paper 21, and Paper 22. To create the teddy bear, I found a cute teddy bear clipart image, traced in onto some patterned paper, and positioned him between the gnome's hands. To create the background, I grabbed Paper 19 and tore it to create a white edge. I adhered it to white cardstock and added faux stitching with a black marker. Next, I freehanded some clouds and cut them out of white cardstock, added foam adhesive, and adhered them to the top portion of the background. After adhering my photo to the layout, I added a title using Thickers and the word "sweet" from a Thickers pack in my stash. I adhered 3 butterflies from the Butterfly Stickers around the layout then added border stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book under each cloud. to bring color and depth to those clouds. I finished off the layout by adding a few more embellishments including sentiments, gold hearts, and beautiful florals from the Cardstock Stickers.
That completes the layout! This Gnome is just too cute for words. I hope you enjoyed the process and have a great day!
