Today I am sharing a vacation layout created with the Carta Bella Paper Are We There Yet? collection.
For this page, I thought it would be fun to use my Silhouette Cameo 3 electronic die cutting machine to die cut a background shape and than back the openings with several of the cute patterns from the 6×6 paper pad.
I used a cut file that I found in the Silhouette store. This particular shape had patterns in the center of each hexagon. I cut the shape from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock and then simply used a pair of scissors to cut the pattern away so that each hexagon had a blank opening where I could add the 6×6 patterned papers.
I placed my photo on a polaroid-style mat using a block of Navy Felt Designer Cardstock. To the right of the photo, I added two of the 3×4 cards cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper and National Parks Paper. I then embellished the bottom of the mat, as well as several of the hexagon shapes, with stickers, chipboard shapes, and brads.
Next, I used one of the large hexagons as a home for my title. I added a chipboard piece and enamel shape below the title to punch it up a bit.
I love the way this page turned out with all of the cute patterned papers. I’m definitely going to try this technique on another page soon.
