Everyone is head over heels for the Spring Fling collection by Teresa! It is a bold line full of whimsy and fun! I appreciate it for the tonal patterns that can be layered, and there is a cool green in the line that is unique.
I tend to scrap the way that I dress. Mostly solids and neutrals with some burst of pattern. I like to keep it interesting without going over the top. Think both outfits and scrapbooking pages.
For this layout about my daughter, I went with a neutral stripe for the background and added touches of the pretty patterns. That butterfly paper is so happy!
The design of the layout is simple as I used vertical strips of paper on either side of the photo. I grounded the bottom by using the red polka dot. The banner ties both sides of the layout together. It was super easy to make using this patterned paper:
See those circles from the Big Dots sheet of paper? I cut five of them out using scissors. I then folded them in half. I placed a bit of glue along each fold and ran a piece of twine through, creating the banner! Handmade banners allow you to customize them to fit your page needs.
Did I mention the chipboard in the collection? Love it! Finishes off a page like a shiny bracelet completes an outfit!
Does your scrappy style match your fashion sense? How will you translate that to a page today?
