Hi everyone, today I am sharing a 12 Picture Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create layout. I love these new dies, they make it easy to utilize lots of pictures in you layouts!
First here is a list of products that I used in my layout:
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 1 A – SKU: HCD 749
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 1 B – SKU: HCD 750
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 2 A – SKU: HCD 751
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 2 B – SKU: HCD 752
Spellbinders Celebrations Assorted Solid 12 x 12 – SKU: SCP-017
Silhouette America Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T
Sizzix Big Shot Machine – SKU: 657900
I also used some patterned paper, some older Graphic 45 paper and some BoBunny Primrose bling.
To begin I decided what background paper I wanted to use and what paper I wanted to use for the mats. I also decided what pictures I wanted to use. I chose two patterned papers, one for the background and one for some of the mats. I also selected two colors of pink from the Spellbinders Celebrations card stock collection.
I knew that I wanted to get 12 pictures on the layout one picture for each month until my granddaughter was 1 years old. I picked out the dies I wanted to use and played with the layout. A helpful hint, if you aren’t sure what dies you want to use you can cut some extra mats out of old scrap paper and play with the shapes until you know how you want your page layout. The possibilities are endless with these dies!
Once I had all of the mats and pictures cut out and adhered I started to layout my title. I wanted to use a calendar theme since I was using a picture from each month. I found a cute image on the Silhouette on line store called “Calender 12 Months” which is available for purchase, www.silhouetteonlinestore.com. I cut out these and used them for the months. I ended up cutting a background for the images out of card stock.
I cut the wording out on the Silhouette and used the outline feature to make the shadow. Finally I cut two hearts and added some bling to everything.
This was such a fun layout and I love how it turned out.
I hope I gave you some ideas for using these new dies, they are welcome addition to my craft room, I love them!
Till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin,
