4 new layouts to celebrate a new blog

Here are a few new layouts.

The first "uniquely you" is page one of a double spread for a class I am teaching on "how to work with difficult patterns". My local scrap shop had a lot of this BG paper that didn't sell well, so I decided to give it a go. The tag is MME.

Design tip: Break-up a busy pattern with a doily.

For the second page of the spread, in "sweetness", I worked with swirls and tucked the green mat paper behind. The tag is MME.

Design tip: Don't fight with the paper instead, let the pattern guide your design.

My third layout is "wish". I have scrapped this picture before but wanted a layout to coordinate with my "gift" one for my daughter's album. The flower was hand-folded and the papers are an old Prima line from my stash.

Design tip: Weave ribbon into your punch work for added texture.

The fourth layout "sweet little one" is a partial scraplift of Gabrielle Pollacco's "summertime memories". This was done for a class I am teaching at my local scrap shop. The papers are from a few MME lines.

Design tip: Use Stickles to make your own "bling".
