Creating a colorful background with Allie Stewart

We are always inspired by the backgrounds that Allie Stewart creates on her pages, and today’s layout is no exception! She was inspired by one of our most popular products, the Puffy Heart Stickers, to create a page with such an eye-catching rainbow design! Let’s see how it came together.

Hi everyone! Today I have a super easy and fun layout to share using the new June exclusive items! I was inspired by the new Puffy Heart Stickers, and decided to make them the main focal point on my page.

Supplies | June Kit, Cork Tabs, Puffy Heart Stickers, Smile Acrylic, Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection

I used my Sillhouette Cameo to sketch nested circles onto the woodgrain background from the Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection. Next, I poked holes for stitching in each circle, and hand-stitched in rainbow order to match the hearts. It didn’t take very long at all, because they were all just a straight stitch. I put on a movie and was done in no time!

After my background was completed, I used tags from the June Kit for the layers around my photo . I used a small photo in order to keep as much of the stitched background visible as possible. I added the Smile Acrylic for my title, and used some of the die cuts from the kit around the title. My favorite embellishments this month are the adorable Cork Tabs, and my layout wasn’t complete without one!

As you can see, this layout was very easy to make! Letting the background do all the talking makes the process go quickly. It was fun using an embellishment to create a background! This would be a neat technique to try with other shapes. Be sure to check out the new June release for these and other awesome new products. Thanks for joining me today!
