Hey there crafty peeps!
Anita here with you today sharing a layout using the Happiness collection. My idea behind this layout was to use that beautiful rainbow pattern paper underneath a big cut file. I decided on this heart cut file from Paige Evans as I’m a big fan of hearts. I used a photo of my daughter Eve as she love playing with filters on her phone.
I started with white cardstock and cut out the pie chart heart cut file. Then using Good Vibes and my paper trimmer I cut strips at 1 inch of each of the colours on the pattern paper. Using my fringe scissors I add a fringe to each strip.
Then I layered them – just overlapping them and adhering them together. Once I had enough to cover the cut file I then adhered the heart on top of the layered fringed pattern paper and added some machine stitching around the border of the cut file.
Next I layered white cardstock on to meadow pattern paper to add a border around the edge of my white cardstock.
Then using double sided foam tape I added it to the backed cut file and adhered it in the center of my layout to add more dimension.
I grabbed a chipboard frame from the Boys Rule chipboard pack and adhered my photo to it. Next, using Sprinkles patterned paper, I matted my photo with the chipboard frame onto the patterned paper then adhered it down. I then started adding some Happiness ephemera around the photo.
I used a chipboard title from the Midnight chipboard pieces and popped it up on double sided foam tape on the bottom of my photo. Then using another cut file moth I backed it with Expressive pattern paper and add it to the top left hand corner of my heart.
And lastly I added a mini bow on top of the the tassels from the Happiness ephemera pack, and a few enamel heart dots to finish it off.
I hope this has inspired you to add a fringe or two to your projects. don’t forget to check out my process video here
Happy crafting everyone…Anita. xx
