Punching Pops of Gold
Hey all! It's Jody on the blog today and it's a beautiful day here in Wisconsin, finally!! This warmer Spring weather definitely makes me giddy and eager to get outside with our girls. But before I do, I'm happy to be sharing another fun layout with our May kit, Field Trip. Today, I used this fabulous You Are My World paper from Fancy Pants. These types of papers are great because your title is always there for you to design around it.
This is my last full 12x12 sheet from this kit so now I'm starting to work with smaller pieces and scraps. I'm also working on some cards to send to my Girl Scout troop next week. We had our last meeting for the school year this week and I wanted to send them a little something special to thank them for being so awesome! I'll share those with you next week :)
For today, I used my punches on the fabulous Fancy Pants gold foil paper! I recently purchased a Silhouette Portrait but still need to get it set up!! I know, I know .... it's on my list to day this weekend so I can finally cut Lacey's fabulous custom cut files!! These are my favorites punches by far, which I'm sure you've noticed because I use them often. Next, I fussy cut around the chevrons to create the bottom boarder to my Day Trip 4x6" Clique Kit printable. This helped to ground the larger element so it didn't look like it was just floating in space there. I trimmed the bottom off one of the journaling cards and added it along the bottom for some journaling too. I also used lots of foam adhesive throughout this layout from Scrapbook Adhesives. This is my go-to foam adhesive, I just love it!
Here's a little tip for when you're cutting your banner shapes, like the ones at the right side of my photo. You can use the left over triangle pieces from the middle as more page elements like I did below. I used them as arrows to help draw your attention down to my photo. I added some additional cuteness but layering a cork chevron shape right on top of the triangles. I used more Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares for the triangles and gold clouds and Aleene's Tacky Glue for the cork chevrons.
