I started by pulling the Plus Infinity Background Cut File into Cricut Design Space and sliced out individual plus signs to create a random background on a piece of 12x12 patterned paper from the Simple Stories Sunshine & Happiness Collection. I backed the cut file with a patterned paper from Amy Tangerine's Stitched Collection. Before machine stitching those pieces onto the layout I added a little mixed media peeking out from behind the cut file to help bring out the yellow in the layers behind my photo.
I scattered a few of the plus signs that were left over from the Plus Infinity Cut File around the photo and added stitching through them for added texture. I also tossed in a flair button from my stash, a Heidi Swapp chipboard & acrylic piece, and odds & ends from American Crafts. No layout is complete without a little Heidi Swapp Color Shine splatter & enamel dots!
Here's a process video showing how all of this came together!!
