Mom's Day / Paige Evans DT

Hello again, friends! It's Friday...yessss!  Today I’m sharing a new layout for the Paige Evans Design Team featuring the Scalloped Circles cut file.  I enlarged to fit my entire page. I did a little mixing and matching with Paige’s collections on this. I used a patterned paper from the Fancy Free 12x12 Paper Pad to cut the design. I love the watercolor look of it, and I placed it on some white cardstock so it would stand out. I used some Shimmerz sprays, some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine, and a few gelatos to create the watercolor effect on the background. I spent lots of time fussy cutting flowers for this page! I pulled out the Turn the Page 12x12 Paper Pad and cut all the gold foiled flowers from one paper. I also cut the hot pink tiny flowers from a sheet in the Fancy Free 12x12 Paper Pad. It’s fun to combine bits and pieces from different collections to make things interesting!

I did even more mixing and matching for my title. I used some of the Take Me Away Thickers for half of it and the Turn the Page Thickers for the other half. I curved the title to fit the cut file. I also added a smaller subtitle over on the left side. I used the “today” sticker from the Turn the Page Sticker Book, stuck it to some vellum, and fussy cut it out.

I love how versatile this cut file is. Usually I back all the open spots with patterned papers, but I decided to leave all the spots open. I wanted the background to show through. I added some shiny gold here with some machine stitching. The background gold really shines and it’s a perfect complement to the gorgeous flowers. The fussy cutting was well worth it!

The best part about combining collections is coming up with your own color scheme.  I love the hot pink added in this mix.  Here you can see the clear sticker from the Turn the Page Sticker Book.  I attached it to some vellum first and then fussy cut it out.

I pulled out the Oh My Heart Chipboard Stickers and found a yellow one that matched perfectly. I added in some of the Turn the Page Ribbon through the hole to finish it off.

I wanted to cluster some of the flowers on top of the photo so I did that in a few places. I added one of the Turn the Page Pennant Paper Clips to the corner edge here and layered a flower on top of it.

Here's one last close-up of the beautiful cut file.  I am just in awe of how pretty it looks mixed with the gold on the background as well as all those colorful blooms!

This was so much fun to create! I highly recommend checking out Paige’s Silhouette cut files. They are really awesome and give you so many possibilities to create with!  Be sure to check out my process video here:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
