Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to save my scraps and that I love to stretch my scrapbook products to the max! You just never know when you might need those scraps!
Today, I'm sharing two layouts that I made using an Elle's Studio Digital Cut File. One layout uses the die cut shapes and the other uses the left over scraps!
If I'm trying to save paper, I will place all of the cut file images as close together as possible. I knew I had more winter/snow pictures to scrap so while I was getting ready to cut the snowflakes with my Silhouette Cameo, I thought it would be fun to strategically place them to create a fun design that could be used as a background on another page.
As you can see, in the layout on the left, I used the snowflakes as simple shapes to help embellish the snow theme of my page. I used the left over "scrap" to create a fun background image for my other layout.
The digital cut file that I used to create these layouts is the Elle's Studio November Digital Cut File for these layouts. As you can see though, any simple shape would work perfectly for this technique.
Here are the layouts close up so that you can see the details a little more. I stuck with a really simple color theme for both pages...white and blue. I think it really helped the photos pop and I love how it looks like the snow is really falling all around my husband!
For this page, I placed a darker colored blue paper behind the openings created by cutting out the snowflakes. It really helped to make the image pop, along with the addition of a few other embellishments that were similar in color.
So how do you like to use your scraps? Have any tips to share with me? I'd love to hear about them!
