Do you struggle using a lot of different patterns and colors on a layout? Today I want to share an easy way to do this using a background cut file and a Doodlebug Design 6x6 paper pad. I cut the; Love Notes cut file that is available in the Lori Whitlock shop HERE;. I used white cardstock so that my different pattern papers really stand out. This file was really easy to back since the hearts are the same size. Hearts are always easy to trace and cut to back cut files. I used as many patterns as I could from the Simply Spring 6x6 paper pad. I knew I wanted to scrap two recent photos of my boys enjoying the weather put that did not stop me from using the more girly patterns. I have no problem using flowers and the color pink to document photos of my boys. I also printed my photos out in black and white. This also helps to let the colors in your papers stand out especially if the colors in the photos do not match you layout. I used A Color Story app on my photo to turn them black and white and the Pic Frame app to put them into a grid where the photos end up about 2x2. Once the cut file was backed I matted on a piece of 12x12 pattern paper from the Simply Spring collection. I made sure that when I cut out my file it was just under 12x12 so that I could mat it with some pretty papers. This helps to frame the layout and look more complete. I added the title from the Simply Spring chit chat pieces and then embellished with Simply Spring odds & ends and the 12x12 sticker sheet. Here is a look at my completed layout. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you will stop by the Lori Whitlock shop and check out all the Doodlebug Design cut files.
Have a great day!
