Peace on Earth Layout by Kelly Daye

Saturday, January 27, 2024

Happy New Year friends! Kelly Daye here with my first Design Team layout of 2024. Last year my New Year’s layout was an homage to me. This year I’m thinking about peace.
I started with Paige’s Globe Outline cut file. It’s cut from pretty Blooming Wild Paper 14 and glued to another Globe Outline cut from white cardstock. That gave me a sturdy piece of paper to stitch on. I always love the detail a chain stitch adds and stitched all around the globe with 6 strands of DMC B5200 which is Bright White. Once stitched, I taped a 12x12 sheet of acetate behind it. That gave me a level surface to add a title. My entire background showing beneath the globe is ladened with flowers. They’re all handmade with several of Paige’s Layered Flower Cut Files. I included: dark blue 328336, yellow 319451, light blue 319449, and pink 319450. All the many layers are made with Blooming Wild then gently teased to add texture. I also tucked in three rainbows, fussy-cut from Paper 6. My title was made with Paige’s Peace On Earth cut file. To be able to pop up the letters, I released the compound path in Silhouette Design Studio and dragged away the inner letters. I cut that from white cardstock. I doubled the layers again for sturdiness and chain stitched it too. Then all the letters were cut from Paper 7 and popped up with foam tape. Once put together, the entire title was popped up over my layout with more foam tape. A trail of butterflies fussy cut from Paper 16 float across my title. It’s all about the layers in this layout. To finish it off, I added Mini Flower Puffy Stickers, sequins, and dabs of gold Stickles. My journaling, printed on vellum, is simple - more flowers, more rainbows, more love.
I hope you’re inspired to create your own New Year message or wish for 2024 using Paige's cut files and Blooming Wild collection. See you again soon!
