Fall is my favorite! And one of our favorite fall family activities is the fair! The kids love the rides and the fair food is always so good...even if it isn't good for you. The Crate Paper Carousel collection by Maggie Holmes, is made for documenting fair photos. I combined it with a fun cut file, to create multi-patterned paper look on my layout, today.
I cut the cut file design in two different sizes, and then backed each of the open spaces with a different patterned paper. Once I had that finished, I layered the two cut files, adhering the smaller one with pop dots for dimension. I placed my photo near the bottom right-hand corner, and layered it with the title. Then I tucked in a few other embellishments to draw attention to the photo.
I created a second cluster area at the top left-hand corner of the layout, to give the page balance. Those cut flags from the chipboard sheet were a must have on the layout! And I couldn't leave off the adorable ferris wheel chipboard embellishment! I also worked in some of the puffy stickers, to add more interest to the layout.
When I thought I had everything finished, I spied the cute Sticky Note Banner Shapes and had to find a way to incorporate them. The scalloped half circles fit right in, tucked under the edge of the outer circle, and I love the way it turned out!
You can also find ways to use the Carousel collection for everyday photos and special occasions. It would be great for a girly themed birthday layout!
