I cut the letters in white cardstock and then backed the cut file using a dark charcoal grey cardstock. I positioned the letters following the diagonal line in the Hip Kit Club patterned paper that I chose for my background.
I positioned the photo directly underneath followed by my journaling. Once I had the fundamentals of the design I started embellishing, which is my favorite part of scrapbooking! I added ephemera pieces & puffy stickers from Hip Kit Club, a silver heart from Freckled Fawn, & a generous sprinkling of sequin puffy stickers from Pinkfresh Studio.
I've put together a YouTube process video showing how this layout came together! Also you may have read during The Cut Shoppe blog hop that I use the Cricut Explore for all of the cut files from The Cut Shoppe. So you'll also find a tutorial included in the process video on how I used the Open Letter Alpha in Design Space!
To my Cricut friends out there, please let me know in the comments below if there is a technique you want to learn in Design Space using the cut files! I'll try to incorporate it into my upcoming projects!! Thanks for stopping by!!
