Make It Yours Monday!!

Monday Blog Header

Hello, Lisa here and Happy Monday! I’m so glad you joined me for another Make It Yours Monday! This week, the inspiration came from a cloud cut file I saw recently. I liked the shape, and the way they fit around a page. I started with my cloud paper punch, but it just was not the same shape. Then, I found my scallop punch and it all came together from there!!

10-3-spl-ft

 

I started this layout with a piece of  dark blue cardstock. I mounted my photo and project life card on first, a piece of ombre pink paper from the Fancy Free paper pad. Then, I added a piece of mint cardstock behind the pink paper, to tie in the PL card color.

I added atg adhesive in the center of my matted photo piece and placed it in the center of the page. I left the sides unglued so I could work with the paper punches easier. I took the square paper all the patterns from Fancy Free and punched scalloped circles from each of the squares. I cut them in half to have 2 of each. After I laid some adhesive under the photo mat (one side at a time so the photo mat does not stick to the others while your working!!) I lined up the punched scallops, making sure to not get 2 like colors together.

The light pink and teal sequins from the Mocha Mint Dream sequin mix were a great compliment to the colors I used in the layout. I lined the bottom of the photo mat, alternating the pink and teal colors. I added a teal bow from Heidi Swapp to the bottom corner of the Project Life card. Some Gold Heidi Shine and I left it alone!!

It was a quick and easy layout but I think it’s really a pretty design. I hope you will look around and find inspiration in different places, and Make it your own, to work on a layout for you!!!
