Beginning to End : Be You

Hello everyone! This is Robyn Werlich and I am thrilled and honored to be the Guest Designer for Basic Grey this month! When I received the Lucille papers, I fell in love with the beautiful colors and patterns that ran throughout this line. I wanted to create a layout that would allow me to use as many papers as possible – in a fun way. I found this Scallop Die-cut Design and thought it would be perfect. I was able to use a lot of different patterned papers from this line, add a large title block and still have some fun embellishments on the page, which all supported my photos and mood I wanted to portray. Here are some simple steps on how I created this layout.

Die-cut scallop design from Silhouette machine onto the Lucille Mini Skirt red paper.

Group the insides of the scallop shapes (in your Silhouette software program), to 4 scallops in every 4″ square block. Cut 4″ squares from different papers and place them on your cutting mat. Cut the design and you will have a bunch of different scallops to fill the design with.

Glue the die-cut red scallop paper to the bottom half of a white piece of paper. Start adhering the middles of the scallops to the page in a random order. Leave some empty.

Die-cut the title in three different pieces of paper and off-set them a bit so there is a shadow of the other papers beneath the top one. This adds great depth to your title. Glue on white cardstock. Cut a piece of kraft cardstock a bit larger than your title and glue entire title piece to kraft base.

Using butterfly punches or whatever shape you have on hand (hearts, stars, etc.), gather some butterflies from different pieces of patterned paper. I also used a butterfly sticker from the Lucille sticker sheet. Layer them, add brads to middle and scatter on the top left corner of page.
