"A Bold Pop" Layout by Stacey Michaud

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?
