She Is Sunshine | Majken Pullin August 6, 2020 07:00
Hello everyone...Majken here with y'all today sharing a layout of my daughter back when she was almost 3 and she chose her own outfit and dressed herself. It really does feel like it was just yesterday. That's why I love scrapbooking - it can take you back to those precious moments you don't want to forget! For my layout, I chose the Delicate Butterflies cut file because her shirt has a butterfly on it. (You can see how I used Delicate Butterflies on a vintage layout of my grandmother a couple of years ago here.)
Here's the layout of my daughter:
I trimmed textured white cardstock to 11" x 11", distressed the edges, and spritzed a little bit of watercolor randomly over the page. While it dried, I cut the Delicate Butterflies cut file in white textured cardstock on my Cameo 4. While it was cutting, I sewed the 11" x 11" white cardstock on top of the blue/purple patterned paper from Pink Paislee's Bloom Street collection by Paige Evans. It matches my girl's outfit beautifully!
After I adhered the butterflies lightly, I sewed along the middle of the butteflies' bodies. I had to use the sweet ephemera, including the butterflies to create even more texture.
I love that the "Sunshine" puffy sticker matches her outfit colors! So I had to use that as my title, along with some tiny alpha stickers to create the "she is".
I lightly layered some yellow watercolor along the distressed edges of my 11" x 11" white cardstock which you can see at the bottom of this next photo. I love doing this because it add dimension to the texture created by distressing.
And it wouldn't have been complete without enamel dots and journaling strips!
Here is the Delicate Butterflies cut file:
I'm so glad you visited the blog today, and I hope you find a fun way to use this cut file (or any JustNick Studio cut files!) in one of your projects. When you do, share them with us on Instagram with #justnickstudio.
