So Much Love Layout by Phil Donahue

Friday, February 16, 2024

Hello scrappy friends! Phil Donahue back on Paige's blog with a lovely & colorful layout featuring the Love Love Love from the 12 Love Cut Files! These cut files are perfect for Valentine's Day and everyday layouts. I wanted to feature a photo of my niece and her dad holding her soon after she was born. This layout was a joint effort between me and my Instagram followers in which I asked them to vote on a photo, cut file, and Paige Evans collection that I should showcase for my next design team layout. The survey resulted in me using the aforementioned photo and cut file along with Paige's vibrant Splendid collection! 
To begin, I cut the Love Love Love from the 12 Love Cut Files from white cardstock and backed it with vellum. I knew because the photo was black & white and the cut file was so simple I wanted to make a very colorful background inspired by the rainbow stripe Paper 3. I found scraps from my Splendid stash in colors pulled from that paper, cut them in 1x10-11" strips, distressed the sides, and adhered them to a white cardstock background in messy rows. I splattered coordinating Distress Oxides around the page and adhered the backed cut file over top with foam squares for depth and liquid glue for longevity. I die cut the photo in a circle, backed it with another piece of vellum, and a scaled down version of Paper 3 from the 6x8 Paper Pad then adhered it to the middle "O" in the cut file. The cut file served as the primary title for the page but I wanted to add a little extra something and found a gold foil "So Much" in the Epoxy Stickers and placed it above the photo to create the full title. Lastly, embellishments were scattered tone-on-tone like pieces from the Chipboard Stickers along with Floral Die Cuts and Ephemera Die Cuts placed on the far right side of the page. Final touches were a trio of gold hearts surrounding the photo.
I hope you found some inspiration in this layout and choose to try out Paige's 12 Love Cut Files Bundle for all your LOVEly photos! Thanks for reading and happy scrapping!
