Hello crafters!  Majken here with you today sharing a layout using a fun background cut file along with 3 others to create a title.  I'm not the best person at taking selfies, but my kiddos were with me on the floor about eight years ago, and we were playing when the opportunity arose.  I captured their personalities and treasure these photos.  <3

I took the rainbow striped patterned paper from the Vicki Boutin Kaleidoscope collection to cut the Heart Strings Background.  I LOVE how the strings look like colorful rainbow waves!

Heart Strings Background

I cut the Heart Strings Background at approximately 11" so I could frame it with white textured cardstock and one of the other patterned papers from Kaleidoscope.  I ended up sewing around the background for some additional texture.

I wanted my two 2x3 photos on the right to avoid covering as many of those cute hearts as possible!  And I knew my title would go on the left.  I started browsing the JustNick store for various words to see what would work well.

I pulled "FUN" from Summer, "selfie" from Capture This, and "moment" from Summer Cards.

I cut the title using the same patterned paper I used to frame the layout because purple is happy.  :)  And I raised the title with 3D Foam Squares for more dimension.

What's really great about digital cut files is you can size them to match your project!  #winning

I added the embellishments of stickers and Thickers last among the heart strings background cut file.  All the Hearts!

And then journaling below one photo between two heart strings!

I hope my colorful project inspires you to use cut files with patterned paper in fun ways (like this rainbow!) as well as combine many words to create a fun, mixed-font title.

Have a super, colorful week!
