Check out the process video to see how this layout came together from start-to-finish:
To begin, I used the Floral Flip Flops from my 20 Days of Summer Cut Files as the basis for my design. You can use any image from your library and have the Foil Quill draw it! There are also USBs filled with designs that you can choose from. SO MANY FUN OPTIONS!
I cut a piece of Rose Foil to almost completely cover a piece of smooth white cardstock and plugged in the Bold Tip Pen to begin heating up. Let the pen heat up for about 5 minutes. Then I loaded the mat and the machine drew the Floral Flip Flops design with the bold tip pen. Once you lift up the foil it’s a big reveal! “Oooh!” “Ahhhh!” So pretty!
For the background of my layout I chose the ombre B-side of Paper 24 which reminds me of a sunset, which I thought was appropriate for a beachy page. I wanted to use the Floral Flip Flops more as die-cuts, so I fussy cut them out and layered them on the background using foam squares for dimension.
I printed a photo of me and my son and added it to the bottom right side. At this point I started embellishing with stickers and die cuts from my Go the Scenic Route collection, keeping things in clusters and layers from the top left to bottom right side to draw the eye all around the page and create momentum. I kept the top right side of the layout empty to balance everything going on.
To finish I wrote journaling on an oval die cut and stamped the date below. I LOVE the sparkle & shine the Foil Quill adds to my layouts! And the possibilities for different shapes and designs is truly endless! I hope you are inspired to pick up the Foil Quill and my Go the Scenic Route collection!
