I think the Shine collection will always be a favorite for me! We went a little more bold and bright and fun with the colors and designs and I can’t seem to get enough of it! I especially love the cut out accents paper that Jessy used in her project for today’s blog post. I always take my cut out papers and cut out all the pieces ahead of time. Then I keep them in a little container near my work space. They are perfect for cards, gift tags and of course scrapbooking! I love how Jessy used them on her page and they make up the bulk of her embellishments. Just goes to show that you don’t necessarily need a ton of products to make something cute! Use what you have, cut it up, add some layers and it all comes to life in such a beautiful way! Thanks for the inspiration Jessy!
Whenever I begin to scrap, I’ll try to ‘study’ or look through the patterned papers & embellishments to see how I can use them differently on my layout. This patterned paper called Bright in the Shine collection captured my attention. I really love all the fun elements & immediately I got an idea to fussy cut each of them out to make my own paper embellishments! This is a fun idea especially when your embellishment stash is running low.
Once the entire fussy cutting was done, I began to arrange them on my layout. I wanted my ‘paper embellishments’ to be the focal point so I arranged them all in the middle & positioned my photo at the right side.
TIP >> To create a little dimension to the ‘paper embellishments’, I adhered foam dots at the back for a 3D look.
I hope this post will give you an insight on how you can approach your patterned papers differently! Thanks for letting me share today!
Happy Crafting! Xoxo Jessy
