A couple of weeks ago, the American Crafts Design Team featured the new True Stories collection by Shimelle, on the Blog. There are so many fun patterns in the collection and the colors are my favorite! I thought it would be fun to fussy cut some of the designs from the papers, and use them to create a big impact on my layout.
How to: Start by fussy cutting 10 of the small Polaroid shapes from the Orange Pekoe patterned paper. Place the Heart pattern mask in the center and a little to the left on your background paper and use a Black fine point pen to trace the heart shapes. Now place the small Polaroids randomly on each side of the Heart pattern. Stitch around each of the Polaroids. Add some spray mist over the Heart pattern before adding the other elements to your layout. Add a large die cut over the Heart pattern and place your photo and title to the right hand side of the die cut. Fussy cut the phrases from the Espresso patterned paper and layer them over the Polaroid shapes. Finish your layout by embellishing with the True Stories Die Cut Cardstock Shapes and Enamel Dots.
