Topic: Pretty Paper
I did NOT know that the store Tuesday Morning had craft supplies till I stopped in the other day trying to waste time before an appointment. In the store I found 6x6 paper pads for $2.99! I bought three of them in different styles.
The first one I used is by Crate Paper and is called Random (thus the title of this blog post).
The only paper I don't care for is the one that is just a plain piece with a black border around it... boring!
I used two cutting formulas to chop two sheets each of all the other patterns (there are 4 of each pattern in the pad). I mixed and matched the chopped pieces together into card layouts and selected bordering colors of cardstock for them.
After this session I took some time to complete 8 cards. They were each finished off with a stamped sentiment popped up on foam tape.
Starting at the END of the layout process, the strips for this card are the trim where the hang tag hole is printed at the top of the pad. In this pad it is a contrasting pattern and is in addition to the 6x6 size. I glued them all down side to side and then used another strip to cover up all the holes.
This one is also made of scraps where several of the cut strips in the cutting diagram needed a trim at the end. I just arranged 5 of them on a left over block from another cuttin. I also pulled out a background paper from my large bin of papers.
This card also uses a background from outside the set.
This one is CLOSE to the layout as designed except I turned the center block on point.
To this one I added some butterflies punched out of the bordering material.
These three are all the same pieces. The feature piece is the same on all of them and the backgrounds change.
I added a strip of left over text on this one:
I have many more cards laid out so there will be more to come.
