Hey there, friends! Missy here today. It’s almost time to celebrate a new year, so today I’m sharing a fun and festive Happy New Year layout with you.
The Jubilee collections are full of fun enamel shapes, so I focused on the shapes from the Wild Berry collection. It has a lot of fun geometric shapes as well as hearts and dots.
I had some excess white space on my photos, so used the geometric enamel shapes to create a fun little border pattern on them. I love the design they create and the pop of color they give to the black and white pictures. When I know I’m going to have a lot of color in my background, I like to print my photos in color…especially when there are a lot of colors going on in the photos.
When I think of New Year’s, I think of confetti. I found this fun confetti die cut in the Silhouette store and cut it on black cardstock. I used the “Love” Paint Paper to back it, and I love the effect that it created.
Supplies: Jubilee- Wild Berry: “Love” Paint paper, 6x6 Paper Pad, “Today” Enamel Shapes; Sherbet – “Happy” Enamel Dots; Necessities – Black & Grays Enamel Shapes, Black & Grays Decorative Tapes, Black & Grays Alpha & Word Stickers; Lost & Found Record It! “Antique” Ephemera Pack; Other – Martha Stewart punch, Silhouette Cameo, cardstock, Stampabilities Ink, DCM Silver floss, Coats Thread, Signo Uniball White Gel Pen, Brother Sewing Machine, pop dots.
Here you can see those fun little enamel shapes. There are so many things you can do with these. They really added a fun element to my photos.
These enamel hearts are so tiny and adorable. I added them to the sides on my photo cluster to add some fun details on the black and white striped paper. I love creating layers, so I used several patterned papers in various colors & patterns to do that. I also wanted to add some silver shine and glitter elements, so I layered in a lot of silver thread.
Here you can see more enamel shapes. These little black arrows are from the Black & Grays Necessities collection. I also dug into last year’s Record It! collection for this awesome silver Happy die cut. Perfect for a New Year’s layout!
I hope this inspires you in some way to pull out your enamel shapes and create something fun with them. Think of this idea the next time you have a photo with extra white space in it. I know a lot of the time I’ll crop out excess space before I print the photos, but sometimes you can jazz up that extra space with ideas like this.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a Happy 2015!
