I was asked a few weeks ago to be a guest designer on the American Crafts blog (before I knew I was on the Design Team). Of course, my reply of "YES" couldn't get sent fast enough! Patterned paper is the focus for these projects, which, I couldn't have been happier with. I get giddy over patterned paper, the smell of a new pile of patterned paper is so yummy!
I created 3 layouts, 1 card, and 1 mini album with the American Crafts goodies.
Get ready for some photos.....
This next layout demonstrates that even though you are using patterned paper as a background you don't have to skimp on embellishments. Just pick a more neutral/tone on tone pattern...then embellish away :)
