Sometimes I like to think a little outside the box! When Heidi set me the task this week to use the Instax Vintage collection. I wanted to try something a little different. I decided to use some of my Vintage Instax Filler cards to create a back ground for two fun layouts. Using the Floral, Friends and Travel Filler cards I created both a feminine and masculine layout. I added in some of my Storyline Deck of Days cards to help complete my layouts.
Let me start with my first layout.
To begin with I took out two of the 12 x 12 pages from my Storyline album and ran one of them through my Silhouette cameo to cut the large circle. The second page I cut out that fun palm tree that I had downloaded from the Silhouette design store.
I grabbed my Instax Vintage Filler cards and my photo and pulled out some of the cards that coordinated with the colors and theme of my photo. I then started laying them out around the circle. Once I liked the placement I came in with some of the Storyline Deck Of Days cards from the Motivational set to fill in some of the vacant places. I then took another 12 inch piece of cardstock, traced a circle using the cut circle and adhered my cards down. I then laid my cut circle page on top.
I added my journaling using my We R Memory Keepers typecast typewriter. First I used the pink frame from the Filler cards and traced the inside of the frame onto some white copy paper. I then ran it through my typewriter keeping the typing within the drawn area. I trimmed and adhered it to the frame and added it into my circle.I added that yellow epoxy word Hello from the Yellow Stationery Embellishment kit as my title.
I used some pop dots to add the palm tree over the circle design and added one of the heart Storyline cards under the palm leaves.
To complete my layout I added some of the clear stickers that come in the Filler card packs onto my photo and onto the frame with the journaling. I love the color combo of navy, yellow and rich plum in the cards, it creates a strong sense of contrast and interest .
My next layout is a more masculine page.
Again I took one of the 12 x 12 Storyline pages and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the rocket shape.
I then grabbed the Travel Filler card set and added that "Adventure is Calling" card with the clouds which was a perfect match to my theme.
Again I filled in my rocket shape with more of my Storyline Deck Of Days cards.
I layered one of the journaling Filler cards under the Silver Glitter frame from the Filler card then added a Storyline Deck Of days card for further texture.
I then slipped another of the Cloud Filler cards to further embellish my layout.
It really was fun to customize my own backgrounds for both my layouts. It is such a cool technique if you cannot find pattern paper to suit your photo of theme.
