Get Smoochy Layout Details
While I was trying to come up with an idea for this layout all I could think of was lips, lips, lips! I had these pictures already printed out, so I thought they would be fun to incorporate into my project.
I started by warming my laminator up while I was working on my cut file of the lips. To figure out sizing, I created a mock layout in my Silhouette Studio software with boxes the size of my pictures. This allowed me to size the lips the right size. Bonus, I was able to use a scrap piece of my Deco Foil Toner Sheet for all the lips on the page!
I also went ahead a worked a little on the background for my layout while waiting for the laminator to heat. . I used the Easy-Tear Tape (seriously, my favorite to work with on bigger sheets of paper!) to adhere my yellow striped paper to the XOXO paper.
Make a Color Palette of Deco Foil
When I pulled the paper collection I was going to use (this paper collection is from last year), I realized there were several colors of Deco Foil that coordinated with the color palette. So I choose six different colors! I didn’t want green lips, so I used the Enchanted Rose color twice.
I love to make things streamlined and not have to repeat steps, so I foiled all the lips at one time I cut the foil a little oversized to the lip die cuts, just in case the die-cut moved while going thru the laminator.
And after the trip thru the laminator here is the magic that happened!
To adhere them to my layout, I used the 3D Foam Squares, along with Gina K Foam Tape. This allows those lips to pop off the page.
Deco Foil Reverse Polka Toner Sheets
The new Reverse Polka Dot Toner Sheets are some of my favorite out of the release. They are great on their own, or as a layer on your layout. I choose to use the Lily Pad foil, since it matched the hints of green in the paper collection and also the stripe in the photo background.
Ok, everyone ohhh and ahhh at the picture below for a couple of seconds!! I will admit, I did when I peeled back the sheet!
My plan was to use this full sheet as a layer for my photo. I tend to use lots of pattern paper layers behind my photos, but I didn’t want this to get completely hidden. I used some strips of paper on top and behind to add layers, but not cover it completely. This is a great way to use up some scraps if they aren’t quite big enough. You can just cut them to fit.
For the bottom corner, I wanted those two pictures to stand out a little more than the picture above. To accomplish this, I used the Gina K Foam Tape on each layer to raise it slightly higher than the next one. I also used the same tape on the picture backs.
One more set of lips to accent the two pictures and my layout was complete!
And that’s all the smooching I have for you today!!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you create something smoochy for yourself!!!
