Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a layout I created, muting my patterned paper background with vellum.
Some of the brand new Fur Fusion collection by Jillibean Soup (coming this October) found its way into my happy little hands and I just couldn’t wait to play. It is so stinkin’ adorable!!! If you have any little fur-babies at home, you will need this super-cute and colorful collection!
One of my favorite papers is Dancing Dogs (b-side).
I also fell in love with Mini Placemats.
I wanted to use them together but when I paired them, the die cuts got a little lost amidst the pattern.
Instead of choosing a different paper or coloring the die cuts, I decided to mute the pattern with a sheet of vellum.
To start, I first decided on the placement of the die cuts and my photo.
I removed the die cuts and the vellum and added adhesive directly behind where my photo would be. (I hear there are some wonderful vellum adhesives out there, but I didn’t have any on hand.)
I placed the vellum on top of the patterned paper, adhering it at the one spot where I placed the adhesive.
Because I like to sew, I added some stitching around the outside edges of the paper to hold the corners down and add some texture to the layout.
I then adhered the photo and die cuts to the layout base.
I started adding more die cuts to add some color and dimension.
I added letter stickers for the title.
I also added some enamel dots for even more dimension and color.
I added a few strips of patterned paper to create a border under the photo and die cuts.
I finished the layout with some baker’s twine and a die cut tag.
I love that I still see the patterned background of the paper I fell in love with without it taking away from all of the wonderful stickers and die cuts in this collection.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
