Hello Doodlebugs! It's Mendi here today with a layout using Doodlebug's new Spring Garden collection. When I decided upon these photos I thought it would be fun to line them all up in a row, but I needed a vertical design that would balance the strong horizontal element of my photos. A 1-3/8" circle punch was the perfect tool to create a grid to fill the space I had with all the fun prints and embellishments from this collection!
To add some interest and a little bit of texture I popped some of the circles up with a slightly smaller circle die-cut from coaster board. I then popped up the flower stickers with foam tape which is slightly thicker. Using the two different materials gave my page some nice variation.
When I was nearly done I realized I hadn't left myself a good place to record a little journaling so I got creative and printed it onto a thin strip of patterned paper, punched the edge with a border punch and added it as a decorative border under my photos. I love how it ties in the aqua color of the "hello" word in my title and solved my little predicament at the same time!
I hope I've inspired you to pull out your circle punch or dies to create a scrapbook page of your own. This would be an awesome design for Doodlebug's 6x6 paper pads! :)
