Forever- A Vintage Layout with Fussy Cutting

Happy Friday, friends!

Today, I have a layout to share using the amazing November scrapbook kit, and a simple tutorial for using some cut outs. The Prima Marketing Zella Teal paper in the kit is out of this world beautiful! I love the paper with the rose pattern, so I decided to fussy cut nearly the entire sheet. On the other side, there is a vintage map print, so I used both sides for my project. I knew I wanted to use one of the large circles and one of the small ones, so I cut those out first, then turned the page over and fussy cut out a lot of the images so I would have a lot to create my design. I used nearly every image on the paper!

Because I planned to use the background paper you see in the picture, I wanted to add some definition of the flowers, so I added some black chalk ink to the edges.

This picture below is an “in process” design as I was trying to see how I wanted to place the fussy cutting. Once I decided on placement, and took a picture, I was ready to remove all of the elements for gluing down.

To add dimension and ease of placing the fussy cut images, I wanted to “pop up” the globe. I COULD have used foam adhesive squares, but that would have been a lot of squares- and cardboard is better because it’s quicker, not to mention, FREE! I added double-sided tape to a piece of cardboard with plenty of room underneath to place the fussy cut images, and also support the size of the Prima Marketing resin frame.

And, here’s the end result:

I added some script stamping with grey pigment ink around the flowers. (I also added some extra flowers from my stash to coordinate with the beautiful flowers from the kit.)

For the smaller circle, I added the smaller Prima Marketing resin frame, and used some of the Prima Marketing wax to highlight the features of the frame and tone down the bright white. The cute little tag was left over from the October Bad Girls Couture kit, so I used it, and added some number stickers from my stash for the year.

I popped up the photo a bit by adding some vintage blue lace trim that was also from a past kit- the October mixed media kit- the blue tone was perfect for these Prima Marketing papers!

I also added a title from my stash, as well as some lace and scroll for added interest on the right side of the frame.
