Another great thing about the 6x8 papers is the patterns are smaller than the larger papers. This floral paper here is a great example. The flowers here are smaller but a lot bigger on the 12x12 paper. I added some foam adhesive to the back to raise it up a bit and then added different colors of tangled thread all over the page. That cut floral cluster is from the Clear Cuts pad. I fussy cut it out. It's sheets of patterned acetate meant for Bible journaling, but you can certainly use them on layouts. I also did some watercolor work on the background. I used the new IF Watercolors to add some shades of orange and pink to the background.
Here's another Clear Cut that I used for part of my title. I also used some of the 6x8 papers as layers behind my photo. That's another great thing to use them for...layering.
I used a few of the cardstock stickers from You Are Loved here as well as a Clear Cut heart that I cut out and stapled to my photo. I also did some machine stitching through the cut file before I stuck it down. I used different colored threads to stitch through the bigger hearts that I didn't back.
I dug into the Paper Pieces package of die cuts and used a few of those for embellishing. I love the pops of black around the page. Black always contrasts so nicely against all the bright colors. I pulled a few stickers from the Fundamentals sheet like that cute yellow tab on top of the photo.
Here's one more close-up. I just love backing cut files! And when you have a beautiful cut file like this one, it makes is even more fun!
I do have a process video for this layout...I hope you enjoy it! It's also posted on the Bella Blvd YouTube channel, so go check that out, too!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
