My Sunshine | Bella Blvd | Fall & Cut Files

Wednesday 6 October 2021


Hey everyone! I have a new layout to share today for Bella Blvd using a mixture of collections and papers. Our assignment this week is to create fall layouts using cut files! I have used a Bella Blvd Sunflower cut file available from the Silhouette Design Store.

I started off by cutting the sunflower. I used Bella Besties dots paper in Bell Pepper for the base. For the second colour of leaves I decided to use a Cooper paper and I also used another Cooper paper for the centre of the sunflower. I assembled the sunflower and stuck it onto a green background. For this I used the Hearts & Ombre Bella Besties paper in Pickle Juice. I trimmed it down a bit, distressed the edges and added it to a sheet of white card.

I trimmed my photo into a circle shape and added that to my layout. I went looking for some embellishments to work with this colour scheme and decided to go for the You are my Sunshine collection as it has lots of flowers, bees and suns in it – perfect for sunflower photos!

For my title I wanted to use the ‘you are my Sunshine’ chipboard title from the chipboard stickers. It didn’t show up too well against all the different colours I already had on my layout, so to create some separation, I mounted it first onto some white card and cut around it leaving a narrow white border. This made it stand out very well.

I cut a few leaves using a leaf punch from three colours of patterned paper and positioned these around the layout, mostly clustered around my photo.

I added a bee Bella Pop, chipboard sun and a few sticker from the You are my Sunshine sticker sheet.

I finished off with a few splatters of white paint.

Thank you so much for joining me and I hope you have enjoyed this fun layout!
Happy scrapping
