Hello Crafty Friends!
Nathalie here, today, I am back with a new layout showcasing the Cloud Nine, April Showers, Let's Talk Summer cut files, and the super cute Ain't Life Grand collection, by Ashley Horton.
I have had this picture of my little in the scrap folder for a while, once the Cloud Nine cut file was available, I knew it would be perfect for what i had in mind.
For this layout, I picked the 8.5x11 format of the Cloud Nine cut file. The empty cloud cut outs were backed with papers from the new collection, "Ain't Life Grand" by Ashley Horton for Pretty Little Studio, and some white polka dot vellum paper.
A bit of dimensional adhesive was perfect to create that lovely shadow on the page. The background paper was created using distress ink and a blending sponge. I simply worked from the center to the outside, just a bit wider than the cut out.
Aren't the patterns of the papers just beautiful!. I tried to find all the papers that had some pink in them, so that they did not blend with the background.
Finally the title was created by using the Hello cloud image from the April Showers cut file, and the Summer word from the Let's Talk Summer cut file. Once again, I used a combination of the papers used to back the clouds to tie in the title to the layout. A few drops of white and black acrylic ink complete the page.
This layout took no time to come together, and i love how it looks. The cut files combined with the colorful "Ain't Life Grand" collection was just perfect to document this picture.
Don't forget to check all the cut files used in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store, there are so many designs available !!
