Today – Paige Evans + Silhouette

I chose Heart Group (Design ID #260894) from Paige’s Silhouette store.  I knew I wanted to do some mixed media on my page and thought about how I could tweak the cut file to get the look I wanted!

I first cut just the whole outline from white cardstock by ungrouping the design and deleting the hearts.  I then used spray mists to “fill in” the heart.  I used four different colors, and the cut file made a great stencil!  While the ink was drying, I went back to the cut file, and this time I deleted the outside cut line of the hearts and just kept the heart’s themselves.  I lined them all up in a grid, grouped them and then duplicated all the hearts and reduced the size.  I painted the hearts with a deep navy paint and painted the smaller hearts with white paint.  I then ran a line of stitching through both hearts and glued them onto my page!

Now comes the embellishing!!  I had chosen the ink sprays to coordinate with Pick Me Up by Paige Evans and Pink Paislee, so it was just a matter of choosing which die cuts looked great with my photo.  I chose a flower cluster, some word tabs and the butterflies from the sticker sheet.  I finished it off with the pretty “today” chipboard in glimmery gold foil!

I LOVE how my page turned out.  Using Paige’s cut files as stencils is a great way to get multiple uses out of them!
