PATTERNED PAPER & PUNCHES ON A LAYOUT | with Erica

Do you love to use a lot of pattern paper but struggle when trying to make it work on your page? One way I love to get a lot of color and patterns on a page is to use my paper punches! I have a stash of punches that I have had for years and recently I have been pulling them out more and more to use on my projects. One of my favorite punches right now is my 2 3/8 scallop punch! I went through the Simply Spring 6x6 paper pad and punched out a stack of scallops. There are many ways to arrange the scallops on a page so just have fun and create something that makes you happy. Once I had my scallops arranged I used my Therm O Web adhesive runner to stick them into place. I did bend up the edges a bit so they had some dimension.
I pulled out the Hoppy Easter odds & ends to embellish around my photo. I thought these would be perfect to go with the photo of our little Liam wearing some bunny ears. I also pulled in a heart epoxy flair from Scrappin Happy Studio. Layering up the odds & ends to create a little scene around my photo adds dimension and interest! I think it turned out super cute and love how some things are popped up more than others! Next time you get started on a project think about pulling out some of your paper punches! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you found some inspiration using pattern papers and punches.


 Have a wonderful day!
