Hey friends! I am back with a new layout for Doodlebug Design using the Hey Cupcake collection! I really wanted to show off some of the 12×12 pattern paper in this layout so I decided to create some sun ray strips! This is a great way to use a lot of pattern paper and use up some scraps.
I started out by picking the papers I wanted to use. I trimmed each piece down to 3×12 rectangles. Once all my pieces were cut out I cut them into triangles using my Fiskars paper trimmer. I distressed the edges of each triangle using the edge of my scissors to add some texture.
I used a ruler to mark the center of my American Crafts white cardstock background and began to adhere my strips of pattern paper down. The strips will hang over the edge of the background cardstock so you will just need to trim them down with some scissors once everything is down. Once everything was stuck down I got to work on my photo. I used a photo from my daughters birthday party a few years ago. I cut it out using the Doodlebug Design Nesting Scallops die. I also cut out a piece of pattern paper from the Hey Cupcake 6×6 paper pad using the same die. I positioned my framed photo towards the bottom of the page where the strips ends meet.
I really wanted the rays of pattern paper to appear as if they were coming out form the top of the photo. I popped the photo up on some foam adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and started to add some odds & ends around my photo. I used the super cute acetate balloons included in the Hey Cupcake odds & ends pack around the top of my photo. I like that you can still see the pattern paper through the balloons.
For my title I used one of the Hey Cupcake chit chat pieces and placed it at the bottom of my photo with some foam squares. I pulled out the super cute sprinkles from the collection to add around the bottom of the page as well. I love how it turned it out. Here is a look at my completed layout.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you found some inspiration here today. Have a wonderful day.
