Thankful for you | Laureen Wagener October 1, 2017 11:51

Hi friends and happy Sunday!

It's Laureen here and I am excited to share a new layout with you!

I love quilts - that's a fact! I love the look of them and their designs and I also love to include them onto my layouts from time to time.

For todays layout I didn't have a specific theme to work with so I decided to incorporate the look of a quilt but without all the handcutting and fun.
Nicole has that awesome Quilted Background cut file in her shop which I haven't used until now!

I shrinked it a little in size to be able to use the design twice but underneath and the deleted a couple of rows, so that th design would only be on the right side of my layout.

The new Elle's Studio Family Fun collection is probably one of my favorite collection that came out this year - so I had to use it, because I absolutely adore the colors!!

I didn't want to handcut each of the squares out of the patterned paper so I simply copied one of those quilt fields and used the Outline feature to create a slight border around it and my patterned paper fit absolutely perfect and saved me a lot of time!

For more of a quilt look I used my sewing machine and stitched one border around the entire layout and then along the small lines within the cut file and love the extra little detail and texture that gives!

Thank you so much for looking!

xo, Laureen
