American Crafts | What a View

***If you are looking for the American Crafts 2014-2015 Design Team Blog Hop, please go HERE.***

The 2014-2015 American Crafts Design Team is being introduced on the Blog this week, and yesterday was my Spotlight day!  I shared a layout using the Shimelle collection, and wanted to stop in and share it on my Blog today!

How to: I like to start out a layout, using a background paper with a lined or grid pattern. This always helps me get an idea for the look of my layout. I printed my photo at 3x3 and layered one of the Photo Overlays from the Shimelle collection behind it. Then I cut one of the 3x4 cards from the Goodall patterned paper and placed it next to my photo and behind the Photo Overlay. I wanted a bold title, so I used the Index Thickers under my photo area. These Thickers worked well, because they complement the Cork Sticker that I used on my layout. I finished my layout by adding some stickers from the Accent & Phrase Stickers Book, die cuts, and some stamping.
