Hello friends! Candace here to share my first layout using the completely yummy January kit! Here is just a little sneak at the kit. You can check out the kit and the all extras in the shop here and here.
I loved all the papers in the kit this month and I loved how beautifully they played together so I wanted to create a layout using multiple papers. I started with a 12×12 piece of white card stock for my background.
Next, I cut 2.5inch strips from various patterned papers and vellum from the kit. I adhered the strips down to the base then ran a stitch along the top and bottom of each paper about .25inch in. I slid my bone folder between the stitching to pop up the edges of the paper to add a little dimension and interest.
I wanted a soft edge around my photo so I added a white base to my photo stack. This creates a seamless transition from black and white to the colors in the patterned paper.
To add a little more interest to my title I combined different fonts. This is one of my favorite tricks to combine color elements across my spread and stretch my supplies!
Using a few of the beautiful dimensional embellishments from Crate Paper I created a cluster on the bottom right corner of my photo stack.
I love how seamlessly this layout blends together from the patchwork background to the mixed title and black and white photo. Give some of these tips a try on your next layout!
