Hey crafty friends. I’m Lyne from Lynn’s Everyday Ideas and I want to say a big thank you to Pam for having me here again as such a special time of year. Today I’m going to be sharing with you a scrapbook layout that I created using just a 6×6 paper pad from Simple stories and a die cut background that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
I have had this 6×6 paper pad in my stash since 2014, and I decided it was time to try to use it up. I used a cut file from Paige Evans on the Silhouette store. The file was only about $1 and it made a beautiful focal element for my page. It is cut with white Bazzil cardstock.
To back the images you can either trace and hand cut or use the Silhouette software. I did some hand-cutting, but most I did with the software. The way I did that was to unweld the background and enlarge one of the inside trees just a tad. I then duplicated them in rows and just placed my paper in those rows and cut multiple trees at once.
The page didn’t need much embellishing after the trees were done since there were so many patterns included. I did however add a few things that I felt added just a little bit here and there so there was some dimension to the layout.
The other fun thing about this page is that one of the layers under the photo is a paper bag. Inside the bag I created a very large cardstock tag to insert. I wanted this so that my journalling didn’t add any more business to the page.
I am really happy with how this layout came out, and I hope it encourages you to give a die-cut background a try as well. Oh, and if you’d like to see this come together I have created a video. Hope you enjoy!
