SJLS #4 Happy (time together) Day Layout

Sassy January Layout Series #4 

Welcome to the 4th segment in a series of 31 that will be shared during the month of January.   Click here to find out more about the Sassy January Layout Series.

This layout was created around a new die that CTMH is selling that is actually designed for Slimline cards - it is the Diagonal Stripe Slimline Card Thin Cut (see below).  My thought process is always running overtime as when I see that a product is designed for one concept, I like to stretch the possibilities and take it out of the box and reach for other possibilities.  

This layout is an example of that.  I used the Slimline die across the top of the layout and extended it across the entire page.  Because the die is 3 1/2" x 8 1/2", I had to use 2 cuts on each page.  This is easy to accomplish - you just have to find, or create, a seam where the division won't be noticed.  So in the page on the left, the division is underneath the title and on the page on the right, it is under the Carolina cs stripe.  Pretty tricky right??  Because of where the seams meet up, the piece appears to be continual.
Here is a close up view of the pieces from the Thin Cut at the seam.

The papers and stickers that are used in this layout are from the Perfect Match collection - a collection that is just with us for a short time - until the end of February, or while supplies last.  This collection is a breath of fresh air as we enter in on a New Year.  One of the things that fascinates me is that the color palette opens several possibilities -- the entire color collection can be used or you can pull with the Mint color or the Carolina and it takes on a completely different feel!  This is awesome because it makes the collection more versatile.

Here you can see many ways that the Perfect Match is used in a variety of artwork.


Today's partnering special features the Perfect Match paper pack with stickers and cardstock.  For the next 24 hours only, you can purchase a bundle of the paper pack with stickers and coordinating cs for $16!   This special is available until 9:59am on 1-5-2021.
