"Good Boy", by Kristine Davidson.
Gustave is such a good boy! I created this page for my aunt who has the cutest dog. The dog goes on trips, hikes in the woods, shopping and so much more. He's spoiled rotten! I used the gorgeous Rover Collection that was created for any and all dog lovers. The colors are nice and vibrant with so many great patterns like little dog paws. I wanted to create a layout that had a few dimensions and use more than 3 sheets of pattern papers. I added red as my contrast color to showcase the cute little headband around Gustave's neck. It was perfect.

"Shine", by Lisa Dickinson.
The colorful Illustrated Faith line from Bella is full of bright, saturated colors and fun graphic patterns that I was excited to use on a recent layout. Whenever I get my hands on new papers, the hardest part is narrowing down which ones to use, and with Bella Blvd’s fabulous designs, that’s no easy task!
To solve this dilemma, I often use a large die cut with lots of “compartments” that can hold various colors and patterns. On this page, I chose an intricate floral backdrop and filled in most of the sections with papers from the Whatever is Lovely line. I adhered small pieces of the papers (cut to fit the spaces) on the backside of the die cut and then adhered it to my card stock before layering my photos, journal strips, and title on top.
Not only does this allow me to incorporate lots of different colors and patterns into one design, it’s also a great technique to use up those last little bits of your favorite papers that you’ve been holding onto!
