Hello Cocoa Vanilla fans! It’s Kylie back with you all today with a new layout to share. It’s recently turned Spring here in Australia which has me daydreaming about warm sunshine, flowers and believe it or not Summer! My layout today has been inspired by all of these things as well as me wanting to create with cut files. I have always loved a big title and the cut file I am using for this page is just that. It has been designed by Paige Evans and it became the centre focal point of my page. I couldn’t think of a more perfect collection to use other than the ‘SUNKISSED’ collection with is bright Summery vibe.

Once my cut file was cut out I backed the letters with paper from the A5 paper pack and for the sun I used the ‘SUMMER LIGHTS’ paper which gave a beautiful shaded effect. The ‘BRIGHT SIDE’ paper was used as my background page and I adhered some of the ‘JUST CHILLIN’ paper over the top. A border strip from the ‘FUN IN THE SUN’ paper was added across the lower edge of the ‘JUST CHILLIN’ paper too. My cut file was adhered using foam adhesive squares so that it sat up from the background. Once in place I used a white marker pen to draw a freehand border around the outer edge of the page.

My photo was backed with some white tissue paper for a softer edge. It was adhered to the base of the cut file before I started to create some die cut clusters.

Both floral, die cut clusters have been placed opposite to each other on my page design, which helps give a nice balance to the overall page. I was able to build and create layers amongst each floral die cut by using foam adhesive squares on some. To finish my page I added some of the phrase stickers to the lower right side of my page.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope my Summery layout has given you a little inspiration for your own scrapbooking layouts.
