Scrapbookers Club July Theme & Layered Title Element Technique

I am a huge fan of layering and I thought I would share my love with the group.  Basically, I took a range of coordinating papers and a piece of cardstock and cut several different shapes in different sizes with a selection of my favourite dies through the Big Shot. 

I then layered them on top of each other from largest on the bottom to smallest on the top with foam dots. I then added some flowers and a fussy cut element from the challenge piece of paper.  

If you don’t have a Big Shot or Cuttlebug machine – it isn’t a worry. You can simply trace around household items, use any stencils or masks to make shapes, or even just cut some on your trimmer. J
So all you need to do is add a couple of layers to your title.
