It's Wednesday, which means we have more free-for-all layouts to share with you from a few of our Layout Designers!
“Spring Spectacular”, by Diane Payne.
Our yard is so beautiful in the spring with different flowers, plants and trees in full bloom. I wanted the layout to have a bright and airy feeling. To achieve this I used a neutral background and cheerful papers from a couple of collections for the borders and title.

“Hello Spring”, by Sheri Reguly.
I love incorporating bold elements into an otherwise simple design. In this case, it was the oversized butterflies. To add even more interest to my butterfly embellishments, I layered a smaller version, cut from a different patterned paper, onto the base of the larger one. A threaded button was then adhered to the center of each, and the butterfly’s wings were then slightly bent upward. They were then adhered to my page using adhesive foam to add even more dimension. A few suggestions on other elements that can easily be made “extra-large” to create impact include, leaves, flowers, arrows, or even your basic circle.

"Sun, Shades & Smiles", by Jenny Evans.
We spend quite a bit of time at the lake during the summer, and I love to get photos (of course!). This photo is just another quick picture we took in the boat before going out on the water. The Sand & Surf collection was perfect for it. I love the shades (sunglasses) that are repeated through it, along with all the other fabulous prints. And, the colors are so fun and bright. Such a great collection to have on hand.

“Abby”, by Allyson Meinholtz.
For this layout I focused on the pink and black to POP the color in the photos! I knew I wanted to use the Bella Feathers. I love how they add pizazz.
