Creating a layout without using patterned papers can sound like a big challenge. But you can still create a great look by letting your other supplies take center stage. I used cardstock and die-cut pieces to create my background.
Supplies: Cardstock (AM710-41) - Vanilla, Cardstock (AM710-725) - Shrimp, Cardstock (AM714-17) Glitter Gold, This To That (AM617-13) - Adhesive, Cardstock (AM710-78) - Ash, Cardstock (AM710-566) - Seafoam, Cardstock (AM710-82) - Black, Stitched (368970) - Transparent Stickers Accent & Phrase, Stitched (368978) - Adhesive Back Enamel Dots, Stitched (368980) - Cardstock Die-Cuts Shapes, Stitched (STCHTH-68967) - Thickers Lucky Accent Words/Kraft Chipboard, Knock Outs (KOP63123) - Triangle Banner Dear Lizzy 2"
How To: Use a paint brush to flick white paint across Vanilla cardstock background, set aside to dry. Use a 2" Triangle banner punch to punch out several pieces from Black, Ash, Seafoam, Shrimp, and Glitter Cardstock. Print 5 small photos and punch out with triangle banner punch. Arrange triangle pieces and photos onto Vanilla cardstock background page and adhere down. Add foam adhesive squares to flowers and "Do" Heart found in the die-cuts shapes pack. Gather pieces of loose thread and add to back of foam adhesive square cardstock pieces. Finish page by adding enamel dot, and extra die cut pieces.
