Hi everyone! I'm so happy to share my first project for Crate paper with you today! When I first received the new Bloom collection I couldn't wait to get started right away. There are so many pieces that I love in this collection!
I chose to make a layout using several different patterned papers from the collection. One of my favorite techniques is pattern piecing. Because I chose several bold patterns to use together, I kept the main background paper neutral so that the design would not be too overwhelming. I trimmed my papers into small strips and lined them up in a vertical fashion across the bottom of my page. Then I used my sewing machine to adhere a couple of my pieces down.
I printed a small square shaped photo and adhered to the top left hand side of my page with a small tag sticking out from behind it. I then chose lots of ephemera pieces to accent my page.
I added some gold washi and a cute little rubber charm from the collection too. Then I finished it off by stamping the date and adding some simple journaling.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope that you are enjoying the Bloom collection!
