Whenever I come across a scrapbook collection I’ve never used before, I look at all the papers and elements to see if there is anything that speaks to me. By “speak to me” I mean any details, quotes, or designs I want to base my project on. The Luminary collection is perfection, with its warm colors and beautiful patterns. I wanted to use all the bits and pieces I could, so I decided to make a 12×12 inch scrapbook page with it.
I enlarged the quote to make it easier to trace. Then selected the whole area and played with the High Pass Filter until every single word showed as a solid yellow.
Once I had the cut file ready, I made it even bigger, so it would take half of the page. Mine measures 6in by 7in approximately.
Finally, the elements. How gorgeous are those flowers! I’m in love! You can read about how I use the print and cut feature here in my previous post Hybrid Scrapbooking | A Mini Book.
Here is my final layout:
And some close ups:
As you can see, I’ve backed up my cut file with some of the beautiful papers in the collection.
I love adding clusters here and there.
