I think the cutest thing in the world may just be my little girl's pigtails. I just adore her crazy curls! I thought it would be fun to document my love for her locks in a layout. My favorite part of any layout is the words, so making the title the star of the show seemed like a fantastic idea, too!
From Scrumptious: Autumn Haze paper SC14OS06, Check Please paper SC14OS09. From Twirly Girly: Birthday Girl paper TG14OS02, Piggy Tails paper (of course!) TG14OS12, Rosy Posy paper TG14OS01, Never Grow Up TG14OS11, Sticker Sheet TG14EB02, Enamel Hearts TG14EB07, Brads TG14EB06.
1. I started by cutting a title with my Silhouette Cameo machine.
2. Next, I began tracing the letters onto patterned papers. I "bubble cut" around the letters, then adhered them to the back of my layout with washi tape.
TIP #1: Be thoughtful about how you are placing the patterned paper. For example, I made sure that a rose was centered in the "o" and the "a". For the letter "i's", I made sure that my stripes were horizontal and that the top of each letter began with a yellow stripe for added contrast.
TIP #2: When you are finished backing all the letters with patterned paper, adhere the layout to another piece of cardstock. This makes it easy to add to page protectors and gives you peace of mind that the washi tape won't eventually fail.
3. On the other triangle half of my page, I added patterned paper, my photos, and some journaling.
4. Because I used so many patterns, I kept the embellishments simple: a sticker, some enamel hearts, and some metal flower brads.
Whether you're scrapping your love for your significant other or something silly like hair, give your words more impact with a large title. Have fun with patterned papers, and try an angle. I'm sure your page will be fun to look at and fun to create!
