Thursday Trending: Around the Edges

Everyone knows how hot diecutting machines is a major trend to cut words, overlays, borders and embellies.

I will admit it, I don't pull my machine out enough.  We have an office that is also my scrap room and I can't fit the equipment on the desk.

I still love the idea of a unique background that has curves or interest or jags or all of the above.  So I try to replicate the look by cutting around the edges of patterns.

See the layout below:

I cut around the pattern to create the background.  I put it on a neutral base and layered from there.  I like the curve it give and how the patterns, numbers or words inside the shapes really pop.

I created my title using mixed fonts...another trend I love!

I finished it off with a looped ribbon and some chipboard, all layered up!

I used the Vintage Finds collection by Teresa Collins to make this page! share!  What is trending in your world today?
