Hello 2016 by Paige Evans

2016-Goals-by-Paige-EvansPaige is sharing another fabulous layout with us today that features our Thankful collection, December kit and stamp, and Holiday Pages cut files! And, we love that she has focused on journaling her goals – have you set any goals for the new year?

Here’s how Paige says the layout came together: 2016-Goals-by-Paige-Evans-21. Scale the star page from the Holiday Pages cut file to cover an entire 12×12 page, then cut the stars from a paper from the Thankful collection.

2. Back the stars with dimensional adhesive and patterned papers, die cuts, and the cards used in product packaging.

3. Use glue dots to attach all of the white acrylic stars over the page.

5. Stamp “GOALS” from the “Love and Thanks” stamp on a tab, from the December kit, and tuck it under the top edge of the photo.

6. Cut out the “2016” from the tag from the December kit and adhere in a slight curve with pop dots.

7. Place the Cienna “hello” wood veneer piece above the numbers to finish the title.

8. Print goals in a typewriter font (I used Traveling Typewriter) and adhere them across the top of the layout.

Isn’t this layout so fun?! We love how it turned out and how all the pieces from different collections and kits coordinated – thanks so much for sharing with us today, Paige!

    I love the whole layout. Cutting the stars and backing with patterned paper is so beautiful. I’ve seen this technique done and really want to give it a try. I received a sillouette Cameo for Christmas and need to get over being intimidated! Thanks for your inspiration.
