Hi GoGo Fans, Lorraine here today… I can’t believe we have reached the end of August, I am sure you will agree it has gone way too quick! Among all the Summer activities I have been able to grab some scrapping time and have a fun layout to share with you.
There is nothing better if you want to make an impact than a layout with an oversized title. This is where a cutting machine such as a Silhouette Cameo 3 comes in handy, coupled with a cut file such as this one from Paper Issues called Paint Outline Alphabet
The outline version alphabet file is fabulous as it cuts the positive and negative of what you see above, so not only did I have the bold white outline for my layout I also have the inner section of the title to use on another layout. This technique was recently used in a GoGo Dayaway event ‘Big, Bold & Beautiful, it is so effective yet simple to achieve and was ideal for my Meet The Mouse layout.
Each letter is backed with a patterned paper, I kept it simple with just four papers and raised the letters with foam pads. Keeping embellishments clustered around the photos and only a few around the large open title keeps the balance of the page just right.
I am now totally addicted to these open titles so on the look out for others to try.
