Good Morning everyone!  Welcome to another installment of the Atlas Summer Series with Pink Paislee.
Today I am sharing a layout about capturing a moment at the park.  I took lots of photos on this day of my son playing at the park and enjoying a nice open field, but this one is my favorite.  The clouds were so prominent in the sky, the sunshine was warm and there was a nice cool breeze in the air.  I captured this photo of my son, stopping for a moment to take it all in.
Park days in the Summer are sometimes hard to come by in Northern California, some days are just to hot to go out and play.  On this particular day the weather was nice, and I love that this photo truly encapsulates him enjoying nature.

To create my layout, I started off by cutting a diamond background with my Silhouette Cameo.  I used my background as a template, and placed it over my page.  I cut several 1/2" squares using my machine and filled in the blanks (leaving some open and space for my photo).  A fun diamond background also calls for a diamond shaped photo.  I used a ruler and paper trimmer to cut my photo and then added it to my page.
I love lots of little details on my pages!  So I added drops of Heidi Swapp Coral Color Shine, machine stitching, puffy stickers, ephemera and chipboard stickers to my page.

If you would like to learn how to recreate this layout step by step, you can download the sheet on the Pink Paislee blog to learn more.


  1. I love this LO. The diamond cut file is fab! Do you mind me asking where it is from and what it is called? Thank you

    1. Thanks Michele, it is called lattice background/ template by Sarah Hurley in the Silhouette store. The lattice design fills the whole page but I left some spaces blank.

    2. Thank you, Gina - will go and have a look
