Creating a Die-namite project life layout!

Hi Die-Namite Fans!

 Taniesa here, bringing you my first project as a Die-Namites Design Team member! Today I am sharing a weekly project life spread from my album. I love incorporating die cut embellishments in my Project Life layouts as it adds a lot to a page without the bulk.

Here are the die cuts that I am using in todays layout:




 Here is a look at the full layout:


And a closer look at the left side:


For the weekly title marker I used the Scrolly Bird design. I cut the die from white cardstock and colored over with copic markers. For the patterned detail inside the bird I took different patterned washi tape and adhered it to cream colored cardstock. I then fussy cut the different sections of washi-covered cardstock and glued them to the back of the bird die cut. I love how the different patterns made this beautiful die cut pop even more!


Here is a close up of the right side of the layout:


I went a little non-traditional with this half of the layout. I took the middle section and made it all into one strip, arranging the photos on a 4x12 strip of patterned paper. I then cut the strip into 3x4 sections to fit in the pockets.


I used two dies for this portion of my layout. The first being the floral corner. I cut two of these corners out of heavy white watercolor paper. I then played with some greens and pink watercolors. I love how the watercolors gave different color and texture variation on the die cuts. Much different from coloring with a marker or cutting from cardstock. I then put the two corners together to make a frame around a title. 


For the last pocket portion I used the Flowering Tree die. I cut this out of white cardstock and then colored in with copic markers. For a finishing touch I added red enamel dots to mimic apples. I thought this would be a sweet embellishment touch being next to the Snow White picture.


I hope you enjoyed my Project Life layout and my first post here on the Die-Namites Blog. I am looking forward to sharing many more projects, ideas and inspiration with you all in the months ahead!

Happy Crafting!
