Hi there everyone! It’s Ashley, and I’m stopping in to share a new layout with you. The Wish You Were Here collection is still on my most favorite list right now, because of beach and travel photos from the summer. I thought it would be fun to mix a lot of the patterned papers from the collection, with a large cut file for today’s layout. When you’re feeling the need to get your patterned paper fix, this is definitely the way to go! You can mix a lot of your papers and it’s a great way to use up small pieces you may have left over from some of your favorite collections.
I used a patterned paper from Crate Paper for my background, that would coordinate with the Wish You Were Here collection. I thought about using a White card stock background, but decided the more patterns, the merrier! I cut the large heart on my Silhouette Cameo, and then backed each section with a different paper. Once I had all of the sections filled, I placed it on the background paper at a tilt, and then machine stitched to add some texture. I placed my photo in the center of the heart, so it would stand out on the layout.
Since I had so much going on with the patterns from all of the papers, I didn’t add any embellishments to the individual sections of the heart. Instead, I placed a few around my photo and created two clusters on a diagonal at the top and bottom of the heart. Mixing die cuts, wood veneers, stickers and cut aparts is a great way to add interest to a cluster. I finished the design by placing arrows from the Follow Me sticker pack around the outer edge of the heart die cut.
Whether you’re documenting your summer or travel photos on layouts, mini albums or in your Traveler’s Notebook, the Wish You Were Here collection is packed full of fun patterns and colors to add just the right touch to your projects!
