I hope you had a lovely National Scrapbook Day weekend and was able to create among your scrapbooking friends, near and far. I didn't really get the chance to do much creating, but I did brainstorm and sketch ideas I want to try. One of those ideas is to play with words using negative space throughout the background.
I used my daughters name to spell out her personalities. This is always a fun way to use up lots of space on a page and a fun way to create your title. When I've done this before, it was always with stickers. This time around, the trend is using a die-cut machine.
For this layout, I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut out the words. I used my daughters favorite colors, pink & green, to highlight each word and used a more subtle complimentary shade of color to highlight her full name separately. This required a variety of pattern papers used from five fabulous collections, which is always fun to mix old with new.
I also used a small punch to create a small accent area and embellished around it and backed it with more pattern paper and pearls.
