Hug in a Mug | Lottie Loves Paper | Echo Park Paper Coffee & Friends

Sunday 28 February 2021


Hey everyone, I have a new layout to share today for Lottie Loves Paper, using the Coffee & Friends collection by Echo Park Paper. I have used this week's sketch and have also combined this layout with a moodboard challenge over at Peartree Cut Files set by the lovely Vik.

I've used the Hug in a Mug cut file from Peartree Cut files I cut it in white card and backed it with one of the pink papers from the Coffee & Friends collection. I backed the mug with green card, making the sure heart was pink and the 'coffee' was black.

I then started with a white background (I have no full sheets of patterned paper left!) and added a large strip of black and white check paper. I really love a gingham and therefore was keen to feature this on the layout and the sketch has a vertical strip down the middle. Mine is wider and is cut this wide to accommodate the cut file, which shows up nicely against the pattern.

I added my photo to the left of the cut file and began to create a cluster, I used a kraft envelope under my photo a kraft tag,, and a sticker from the Coffee & Friends sticker sheet. I then added lots of little bits to that area: fussy cut flowers, a paperclip, a doily, tiny gingham bows, fussy cut coffee cups and a woodgrain rainbow. I also added wood veneer hearts and Bramble Fox hearts.

On the other side of the patterned strip I added a floral border from the Coffee & Friends sticker sheet. It wasn't quite long enough to stretch down the whole length of the layout, so I snipped it and added another smaller cluster over the gap - you would never know right?!

I finished with Bramble Fox clouds, Spiegelmom Scraps sequins and Shimmerz paint splatters. I also added some sticky pearls down the left side of the patterned strip.

I'm really happy with how this turned out. I think I can get one more layout out of this collection with the scraps I have left so watch out for that very soon!

Happy scrapping

Niki xx
