Back to School Layout by Ashley Neu

Friday, September 8, 2023

Hello scrappy friends! It’s Ashley Neu here for the Paige Evans’ Cut File Design Team to share my next layout. Using Paige’s Blooming Wild, I created a new back to school layout with the addition of the Alphabet Background cut file.
After cutting the Alphabet Background from white cardstock, I adhered it slightly running off of the background which is Paper 5. I like this look because it gives a fun and whimsical vibe to a pre-k back to school layout. To back the cut file, I cut it again from Paper 10 and used the inlay technique. Some of the pieces were adhered flat to the background and some were adhered using foam adhesive. I like the way this makes shadows. Because I adhered the cut file to the left side of the background, I chose the right side to adhere my photo. Because Paper 10 has a fun rainbow look, I wanted to use the technique of tone-on-tone embellishing. I scattered several embellishments across the background using the Cardstock Stickers, Sticker Book, Thickers, and Ephemera Die Cuts. To finish off the layout, I used Paper 10 again and punched a Notebook Border Punch to adhere to the right side of the layout. I love the symmetry this gives to the look of the layout. 
This background cut file was so easy to use, especially when you cut it again from a patterned paper and use the inlay technique. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this process and are inspired to create a back to school layout! Have a wonderful day!
