Laura Rumble – Corn On The Cob –

Hey guys, Laura here today.

I saw this Corn On The Cob file by Paige Evans and knew I had the perfect photo to go with it.  You can purchase the file pre-cut on black, white or cream card here.

You can see the video of the layout coming together here.

I coloured my cob with a mix of Shimmerz paints in yellows and greens.  My top tip for colouring cut files is if it starts to look weak and flimsy don’t try to pick it up.  Leave it flat and let it dry naturally and the integrity of the card will firm up again.  If you try and move the card whilst it is sodden with paint the chances are it will tear or rip.

I recently went through all of my white cardstock scraps and patch worked together some 12×12 sheets.  I use about 10 different shades and textures of white card so I made sure to mix up the scraps and I have 6 sheets of eclectic card with a tonne of interest and texture which make perfect backgrounds for my simple and minimal scrap style.

I used one of the seams on the background as a guide to add my title… I call it a title – I’ve added MUNCH in different fonts and colours across the page.  The corn on the cob overlaps some of them but because I have left the cut file open (or unbacked, if that’s a word?!) you can still work out what it says.

On to the embellishing; boy did I struggle to decide which flair to use!  Both would have been fine but I switched back and forth for a good five minutes.  I settled on one that said, “it’s dinner time”!  I scattered a few acrylic confetti stars around the page, added some tiny word stickers and finished off with a healthy dose of paint splattering.  My friend will add name, date and journalling when she gets the album.

Thanks for stopping by!

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
