Creating a Layout with Oh Happy Life

I love when a patterned paper is so intricate and beautiful that it takes out the design guesswork for you. That's definitely the case with this Out and About pattern in Amy Tangerine's new Oh Happy Life collection. The detailed white outlines create a pretty frame around the photo. Just a few layers of bright yellow patterns, floral rubber charms and a die cut tag finish off this simple and pretty layout. The bold pop of color makes this a bright, happy page!


How to: 1. Use a little bit of gesso just in the center of the patterned paper to mute the background design a notch. 2. Layer two strips of yellow patterned paper down the left side of the layout, layering your focal photo in the center (4×4). 3. Tuck a strip of floral paper just behind the photo. 4. Cover the back of the white heart die cut tag with white cardstock and cut into a heart shape. 5. Layer a few floral rubber charms from the Oh Happy Life collection around the heart and photo. 6. Last, print journaling on strips of white cardstock, cut into strips and run through a sewing machine before gluing them down.
