Love This Life Layout by LaJeania Hicks

Love This Life

Created by: LaJeania Hicks

Even though our life may be crazy, busy, and hectic, I would not change one think about it. I truly Love This Life. I created this layout for our monthly crop and featured the use of the KellyCraft Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™, to make sure everything was lined up perfectly.


KellyCraft™- Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square
KellyCraft™ - Multi-Mat™
Heartstrings Paper Pack - Close To My Heart 
Stuck on You Puffies & Cranberry Twine - Close To My Heart
Whisper Ink Pad - Close To My Heart 
Cranberry, Whisper, Lagoon, and White Daisy Cardstock - Close To My Heart 
Hearts Embossing Folder - Close To My Heart
Art Philosophy and Storybook Cricut Cartridges - Close To My Heart 
Cuttle Bug
Adhesive (Glue Dots, Pop Dots, Scotch ATG)


1. Cut the paper as listed:
16 patterned paper square (various designs) – 1 ½”x1 ½”
White Daisy Cardstock – 9 ¾”x9 ¾”
Lagoon Patterned Paper – 5”x5” (2)
Cranberry Patterned Paper – 6”x6” (2)
Whisper Cardstock – 12”x12” (2)
Lagoon Cardstock – 5 ½”x5 ½”; 5”x5” (2)
2. Next, sponge ink the edges of all pieces of paper with the Whisper ink.

3. Use your Get-It-Straight Laser Square and mat to align the paper in the embossing folder so that your design is embossed
straight and then emboss each piece using the Cuttle Bug or other embossing machine. 

4. Using the Get-It-Straight Laser Square, align the squares around the White Daisy mat so they are evenly placed.

5. Align each element using the Get-It-Straight Laser Square: 

- White Daisy mat to Whisper Cardstock.
- Cranberry patterned paper, Lagoon cardstock and patterned paper.
- Align the Love This part of the title across the top.  
- Align the Life part of the title across the bottom and attach with pop dots.

6. Attach Cranberry twine to photo mats and the Stuck on You Puffies around the layout.
