Tropical Layout

So, I was looking for a particular photo recently and surprise, surprise, couldn’t find it! It was one I’ve been wanting to do a scrapbook page with. I have a lot of those. Please tell me I’m not the only one? But, I did come across another one that I had totally forgot I had and thought it would be great for a tropical themed layout project. And, of course, I have some lovely card stock from CutCardStock that will work great!

For this project i am using: DCS Discount Card Stock: Aqua Card StockBasis 8.5×11 GOLD 80lb CardstockMirriSparkle Gold Glitter 16 pt 8.5×11 Card Stock.

The patterned paper is digital from Design Lover Studio and was printed on Classic Crest NATURAL WHITE 8.5×11 CardStock.

The Aqua is used for the base. I matted the Mirrisparkle Gold Glitter with the Basis Gold.

My flower embellishments were all fussy cut from the patterned papers. I die cut my title with Sizzix dies and cut a few strips of card stock to use.

The large flower piece above was cut from the piece used below, not to waste! And my photo fits over it perfectly.

I added one of the patterned papers to the base along with a strip of the Aqua card stock. My photo was matted with Basis Gold. Another strip of Aqua place beneath.

Title pieces and the large flower embellishment were added.

I finished by adding 2 overlapping strips of patterned paper, a very narrow strip of Mirrisparkle Gold and 5 fussy cut flower as a border along the bottom. Glitter dots were added to the flowers for a little extra sparkle!

I hope you have enjoyed checking out my layout. Don’t forget to connect with us over on the CutCardStock Facebook Page.
