Make It Yours Monday~Sunshine

Hello my scrappy friends and welcome to another Make It Yours Monday!!! I hope you have had a chance to check out our awesome blog hop from this weekend, LOTS of great projects were shared!!

Today, I have a layout for you that I was inspired to make by one of the monthly cut files Spieglemom offers. You can find them HERE.

I used the You are my Sunshine cut file and as soon as I saw it, I thought of a beautiful, sunshine filled photo of my daughters I took recently. I knew it was perfect for this file and really am happy with how this layout came together.

I started by taking a piece of America Crafts white cardstock and used my Heidi Swapp sunburst stencil. I misted both Glorious Day and Sunset Strip Shimmerz to create a subtle sun ray pattern on the background. I also used some Snow Way Man and Pink Stilettos mists to create some splatters and bring in colors from my photos.

Next, I cut my file from 2 different colored cardstocks. I used my Scan N Cut to cut the sun from a yellow and the clouds from a light blue. For the sun, I used various yellow sequins from a few different mixes to fill the center and make it shine like, well, the sun!! I used yellows from Pocket full of Posies and A Day in the Woods. To make the clouds stand out a bit more, I edged them with some Baby Boy Blue Paste-eez on a dauber.  To add some interest to the clouds, I used the end of a paintbrush to add some Puttin on the Glitz Paste-eez on the edges of the clouds. This brought some fun sparkle to them!!

For my photo, I backed it first with a very light pink and then a darker pink cardstock and added a really pretty piece of watercolory orange and pink paper with fun glittery polka dots. I added the clouds and sun pieces on some foam tape and added it to my background.

The title of my page was cut from a darker blue polka dot paper using the cut file again. I added it to the right of the photo and it fit there perfectly!!

To finish this fun page, I sprinkled some blue sequins from the Cozy mix around the page for added sparkle and some more yellow’s from Pocket full of Posies. A strip of vellum and pattern paper to the top and bottom corners, journaling on the back, and my layout was complete!!

I hope you will check out all the fun products in the shop and use LISA15 for 15% off all your purchases!!!
