Hello Love!!

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

Happy Tuesday!

    Absolutely beautiful layout, I’m not sure I would have “seen” all of those cut-aparts as fussy-cutables. So I love that! Beautiful!
