Hi Folks! Laura here again with a photoless layout. My pet budgie (parakeet) is called Herbert and I wanted to document the definitions of his name as they are rather apt… well one much more than the other!
I looked up the definition and origin of the name and the word and printed them out. The other focus is the feathers flair button which is where I got my colour scheme from. I wanted to keep the layout fairly clean and simple with the added colour coming from splatters and sequins only – no patterned paper at all.
Hi Chaps. Laura here today using one of our free cut files. You can find all our cut files here, and tag your Instagram photos with #smscutfile when you use our files – we love to see your work.
I have just got my hands on the latest sequin releases. My favourite (I love them all, but you know!) are the little stars ‘Stargazer‘ but I was also really taken with the yellow mix ‘What’s Up Buttercup‘. Using them as my cue I pulled out some yellow papers and an assortment of black cardstock with different finishes.
I spent some time cutting out pieces and backing the cut file. I tried to spread the colours and patterns out as evenly as I could. Once the hexagons were backed I added some black ink splatters and a sprinkling of sequins. Very clean and simple, but also bold with a big impact.
All that was needed to finish it off were the name and date tucked in, and a final ribbon tab for an extra splash of yellow.
I love the white space and the limited colour palette. How about you?
