Hello everyone, Karen here today with another scrapbook layout using Carta Bella's Welcome Autumn collection.
I started with a piece of white Bazzill cardstock which I trimmed down to 11.5" x 11.5", matted onto a sheet of the Crisp Leaves paper and machine stitched round the edge with white thread. The Crisp Leaves paper actually had a huge piece missing from the middle as I had already used some of it on one of my other layouts, and I also wanted to use some elsewhere on this layout. By matting the white cardstock on top of the Crisp Leaves paper you would never know it wasn't a whole sheet.
On the left side of the layout I layered several vertical strips of patterned paper. I used border punches on some of the strips to add a bit of interest.
My photo was then triple matted with white cardstock, some of the Crisp Leaves paper and the B side of the Journalling Cards paper. The matted photo was then added to the layout, overlapping the paper strips, and with some 3D foam underneath to add some dimension.
Using a free 'Let's Walk' cutfile from the Hip Kit Club, I cut the title from more of the B side of the Journalling Cards paper. I chose not to back the cut file and instead left the open parts empty so the title really stood out on the white background. The cut file was placed beneath the photo and completed with the addition of some tiny foam alpha stickers from my stash.
