Hey y’all! It’s Courtney here sharing the layout that I created using the awesome Happy Trails collection. This collection was calling my name with all of the amazing colors and icons it has to offer. I’m really into the mustard yellows, aquas, and oranges right now. Here’s a look at the layout that I created.
For this layout I knew I wanted to use a cut file and I knew I wanted something like mountains or triangles to give me that mountain look. I went with a cut file that I have actually used before, but I went a different direction with it, literally. This cut file is a free file from Paper Issues and it’s called It’s Geometric. I turned it sideways and backed it with a few of my favorite pattern papers. I cut this one out in white so the colors would really pop against it. I added some dimension to the cut file with foam tape to help separate it from the background.
I printed three photos out for this layout and I was originally only going to use one, but I loved how the 2x2 photos looked with the 4x4. These pictures of my oldest are some of my favorites and I thought the colors were perfect for this collection. They were all matted in white as well to help them pop.
I created three clusters around my photos using a combination of the sticker sheet, the icon bits and pieces, the journal bits and pieces, and the chipboard. I added a few enamel dots from the Oh Happy Day collection along with the cute little mosquito’s to create my three. Then I finished my layout off with some black paint splatters.
I hope that you get inspired by this layout and I can’t wait to see what you create!
