Everyday Memories with Enza

Hello, everyone! Enza here, and I'm back today with a new layout featuring the amazing Everyday Wishes kit.

PHOTO Main - Jan29-2.jpg

I love using die-cuts and dimensional elements on my pages. They add texture and color, and create lots of interest, especially when grouped together to form clusters. I started by backing a heart wreath cut file with several patterned papers from the kit. I was not sure how I wanted to add more dimension to it. I thought about adhering it down with foam adhesive, which is what I usually do, but ended up creating a shaker in the center of the wreath instead. Shakers are such a fun element and very simple to make. Here, I just adhered a piece of acetate to the cut file before gluing it down. Easy peasy. I love how the colorful sequins move around and make this layout more interactive. To jazz up the background, I also splattered some mist on it, making sure to use colors that coordinated with the papers in the kit.

For the photo, I created several layers behind it with patterned paper and embellished it with many die-cuts. The ticket stubs come from one of the cut-apart sheets. I simply stapled them together and used hearts in coordinating colors for a tone-on-tone look. The word die-cuts are perfect to create titles. There are so many of them! Again, I used foam adhesive to give it dimension.

To finish the layout, I added a small cluster of embellishments on the opposite side of the photo to balance it out.

That's all for today, friends. I hope you enjoyed reading about my process and will feel inspired to use some of these tips to add dimension to your next scrapbook layout.
