Let's Have Fun | Lottie Loves Paper | Paige Evans Bungalow Lane

Thursday 9 September 2021

Hi everyone! Here is a new layout for Lottie Loves Paper using the very beautiful Bungalow Lane collection by Paige Evans.

In every Paige Evans collection there is a paper with square swatches and I always try to think of different ways to use this paper. Today I opted for a patchwork heart. I cut a large heart from the swatch paper using my Silhouette. I also cut a slightly larger heart in white.

I prepared a background which is a beautiful pink paper with material texture and wobbly grid lines by splattering it with white paint. I set that aside to dry while I worked on my patchwork heart.

I then cut apart all the squares on the heart. I distressed the edges of each and then stuck them all on the white heart, slightly spaced apart. I then machine stitched around each square using white thread. The result is a pretty patchwork heart with lots of patterns and texture! I positioned this onto my layout, slightly towards the top.

I added my photo which I mounted on a couple of paper layers, and a chipboard frame. I added one of the beautiful layered stickers and lots of epoxy stickers including flowers, leaves, butterflies, a bunny and a banner saying ‘wonderful’.

I added some foam phrase Thickers too ad added a title using a Bramble Fox Perspextive ‘let’s have fun’. I added this to the left of the photo but unfortunately it overlaps two squares so it doesn’t read as clearly as I would have liked.

I wanted to add a few smaller items but all the embellishments I had weren’t quite small enough, so I thought I would look through my Wonders collection to see if I had anything left over from that that might work. The little stickers from the Sticker Book, puffy stickers and paper flowers were perfect. I love that previous collections go well with the new ones as it means I can mix and match my stash!

I added some Bramble Fox hearts and a cute bee and finished off with some journaling on one of the patchwork squares.

Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you have enjoyed this layout.

Happy scrapping
