Creating Dimension with a Die Cut Background

Hello there! Let me introduce you to today’s guest designer! I’ve been a fan of Paige Evans for a LONG time and to say that she is talented is quite the understatement. I don’t even know how to describe her amazing style other than to say that I am literally WOWED and in awe every time she posts a new scrapbook page! I am drawn right in to all of the little touches and details. I am also so impressed with the way she uses her Silhouette Cameo and cut files. She really puts that machine to use and creates the most magical things!! Keep reading to be wowed yourself and to see first hand what a talented lady this cute gal is!! I love how she created so much dimension by die cutting the background and then placing paper behind it with foam adhesive. Also her hand stitched border is so fabulous as well!!

Cut the flower file from white card stock and then back the layout with the “Lovely” paper from the Confetti collection, using dimensional adhesive. Watercolor over the flowers, matching the color of the paper underneath (although I added more yellow to the mix!). Next trace a large round plate around the flowers with a pencil, poke a whole every 1/4″, then backstitch with a rainbow of floss.

To finish the layout, layer a photo over a transparency overlay and then embellish with a chipboard frame, piece of a doily, tab sticker with the date written on it, a large fabric brad, ribbon pennant, epoxy letter sticker, camera hairpin, glitter leaf, half of a frame die cut, and a bit of journaling written on a die cut.
