Patterned Paper Week!

Patterned paper

Hi everyone! And welcome to Patterned Paper Week! I've been looking forward to this week for a long time now! Paige Evans (that's me!) starts of this sure-to-be-colorful-and-fun week with a pair of layouts:


Sweet Cute Fun
SWEET CUTE FUN by Paige Evans

Create a triangle template from cardstock and use it to make triangles from lots of patterned papers and a few photos. Adhere the triangles across a blue cardstock background. Drop white spray mist over the layout and add arrow stamping, puffy pennant stickers, flower buttons, and more over the triangles to embellish. Create a title on the left side from die cuts and stickers then stamp the date on a pennant.

You Are My Sunshine

Die cut a title from a white cardstock background then back each section with a different piece of patterned paper and one photo. Trace a large plate around the sentiment then pierce holes every 1/4" for stitching – use yellow floss to stitch the circle. Watercolor blocks of color from the circle to the edges of the layout. Stitch rays around the edge of the sun every three holes of the circle. Make two clusters of flower die cuts and an embellishment on the top left and bottom right corner. Write journaling extending from the flowers.
