Layout Using Multiple Pattern Papers


I love using more than one coordinating pattern paper in my layouts! The paper you see here is all from the same line of papers and goes together so well! I matched it to some cardstock and viola! The pine boughs and pine cones are custom cut out at Picture This to go with my page. I added Crystal Stickles to make them pop more. Finished it off with a gold double bow that I made with the Bow-it-All!

Another quick layout using paper scraps from another project. Quick and easy! Took longer to glue everything in place than it did to create! What can you make with your scraps?

2 Photo Layout Using Scraps!


I made this layout using scraps from another project. This striped paper was so pretty so didn't need much to go with it. I used a cocoa brown cardstock and added the scraps of striped paper. I punched out the circles from a scrap of metalic gold paper and added some butterflies I had on hand. Took less than 5 minutes!

Snow Fun page with Dienamics by My Favorite Things


I used the Dienamics by My Favorite Things set of 3 snowflakes to create this page. I used only one of the 3 snowflakes. I put a gem in the center of the 3 purple snowflakes and colored them lightly with Wink of Stella. I found some small white snowflakes left over from another project and added a few of them as well!

2 Page Flower Layout

I found this super cute paper on the sales floor at work but there was only 2 pieces left so I created this layout. I decided to make my own flowers that matched these pages.






The flowers were made by cutting out various sized circle dies out of coordinating papers. Then I used the Tim Holtz Distressing tool and roughed up the edges. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I used my stylus and to add dimension to the flowers and then attached them all together off center with a large brad. I thought they looked similar to the flowers on the background. 

I finished the set of pages off with a custom cut title of 'Memories'. Something simple to go with the simplicity of the pages.
