Hi there! Jessy has WOWED me again with her amazing use of the Silhouette Cameo and my Open Book collection in creating a custom background for a scrapbook layout. This time she cut a fun triangle design and then positioned the pieces she chose from the paper below strategically so they would show through in the spaces where she wanted them. At first glance it looks a little complicated, but after reading her tutorial and tips, I believe it would’t be very hard at all! 

Hello again! Today I will be sharing with you on how I used this beautiful paper called Bookmark in the Open Book collection on my layout. I absolutely love the words on this paper! So I decided to use these words: The perfect day, Beautiful & Story Teller as part of my background.

First, I cut out a triangle design on the background cardstock with my silhouette cameo. Then, I positioned the patterned paper behind the cut lines. Next, I traced the lines so I could hand-cut the words/patterns.

TIP > Cut slightly outside the lines that you have traced, so you can glue the pieces onto the back of your cardstock.

This is how it should look once you glue the papers down onto the back of the cardstock.

Here is my completed layout….

All I did to finish off the page was to add the chipboard shapes + the decorative ampersand clip. I love the thickness of the chipboard and dimensional look it adds to my layout!
