Hello everyone! I’m back today to share a new layout featuring the gorgeous Hey, Sugar January kit. I love everything pink, so you can imagine how happy I was when I received my awesome box of goodies.
I always try to include different elements on my projects, so to achieve as much texture and dimension as possible. The idea for this layout came from one of the fun cut files available with the January kit.
The cut file on its own is very versatile. So many possibilities! You can use it as it is on top of some patterned paper or vellum, you can use different patterned papers to back each section, you can even cut out the individual elements to create your own background.
The first thing I did was use the Crate Paper Heart You Gold foil heart vellum to back some of the sections and the Crate Paper Lovely patterned paper to back others. I also included some stitching to add an extra element of interest.
Once my cut file was ready, I prepared the background paper that I wanted to use as my base. The packaging technique is the simplest way you can add some mixed media to your pages. I used pink and gold mist to match the colors in the kit.
Next, I worked on my layers.
I used both side of the Happy Hearts patterned paper to back my picture. The bottom layer is just some mint tissue paper I had in my stash. I think it makes the photo stand out more. The fussy cut flowers come from the Crate Paper Adore You patterned paper, while the black enamel hearts are from Bella Blvd. I love the contrast between all the pink and the black accents on the page.
The embellishments included in the kit are so cute! I also love the Fancy Pants Joy Parade Sentiments Puffy Stickers. They are perfect for any type of project.
That is it, my friends! I hope you enjoyed reading about my process and feel inspired to use the January cut file to add some fun elements to your layouts.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great day!
