Love You Because layout and process video

Scrapbook and Cards latest issue, December 2016, has some awesome free downloadable files. Some of which are from Ali Edwards. I've so looked forward to her contributions to the magazine and was so sad to learn that she will no longer have a regular contribution to the magazine, which she talked about in this blog post. I felt inspired to download the free digital downloads of hers and create a cut file with my Silhouette. I chose to use the cut files to document our recent little kid-free getaway to Banff over the weekend. I'm so glad I put the effort into hauling my camera around even if I might only snap a couple photos, one of the photos was an instant favourite and I knew I had to use it!

I created several different sizes of the messy circle file, always my favourite of Ali's. I'm no pro when it comes to my Silhouette Cameo, only half of my cuts turned out so, but that's still half! So don't feel discouraged if you don't use your cameo often. If I can do it you can do it :) I love how the large cut turned out!

I made a short video on YouTube showing you how I put it all together.

Here's the photos showing the page details. I love simplicity when it comes to scrapbook pages these days.

My Journaling strips were cut out from another print of the photo. I'm still learning how to edit my photos in Lightroom, take them into Photoshop to add journaling then go back into Lightroom to print them from there. For some reason the photos I print from Lightroom are far better quality then when I print straight from my computer, my phone, or even from Photoshop. If anyone has any good tips on simplifying that process please do share!! :) 

I added dimension to my page by adding pop dots to the crown and the large circle cut. I backed the cutfiles with patterned paper scraps I had.
