I went through and chose several of the papers from the Main Kit & Paper Kit. I created the quote in my Silhouette software and then cut small 2x2 squares from all the papers and arranged them on my cutting mat. It took me a while to arrange all the letters...I wasn't sure at first if I wanted the quote up top or at the bottom. I finally decided to stack it up on the left like it is here. Once I knew where my photo was going to go I did a bit of packaging technique with some Shimmerz. I also did a bit over on the left to add some interest to that side of the cardstock. I also did some machine stitching to add a bit more interest.
This is really an easy thing to do. For me, the funnest part is choosing the papers to use. There may be one small section of a patterned paper, so it's easy to cut a small piece of it for cutting a few letters. This font is from the Silhouette store...it's called Handtastic. I did outline all the letters with a black pen eventually. It really made them pop right off the page.
I love how the black splatters look, and the blue & yellow Shimmerz turned out really nice on the background.
These hearts weren't planned when I designed this page. When I made my first layout a few weeks ago using the exclusive Art Class paper designed by Kim Watson, I cut hearts out of it on my Cameo. I kept the scraps, and so I just hand cut around the heart scraps and made these open hearts. They made great layering pieces! So I decided to tuck them in and around the photo. I also used a few of Kim's exclusive puffy stickers and some black tangled thread.
I love this big chipboard piece from Becky Higgins here below the photo...it fit just right in that area, and I like that it's black & white and doesn't compete with all the other bright colors.
My journaling fit just perfectly down here, and I was able to add several die cut phrases here as well as some puffy sticker dots.
