{1 Layout, 5 Ways ~ Layout 3}

Getting to the point where I feel like I'm making some progress on this blog series...I'm over the half way point! Yay!

I had so much fun with this particular layout that I created several versions of it and here is the next one I want to share with you.

I again used the Pemberley paper and it is so similar to the first layout but with adding different embellishments and techniques you can make a layout different!

I have recently become so eager to make my own embellishments and I have fun doing it!
I decided to stamp a few flowers and ink the edges after cutting them out ~ careful to remember to cut so there was some texture to the shape. Adding a brad to the center to anchor it to the page, and you have a super cute embellishment!

While I stamped the images onto the base page I decided to add some Bitty Pearls to the images to add some dimension and a little bling!

I added two stripes of B&T and formed banners to help bring some attention to my title area. I LOVE dragonflies and so I was so excited to finally have a stamp that featured a dragonfly...and one that I liked!

I have been busy sewing and stitching on most of my layouts lately and this one was no exception! I used the CTMH Ruler and proceeded to place a border around the entire page. I decided to do a very close pattern to form a beautiful and delicate line of stitching on the page. This is just one more way you can make a layout striking and still be able to include it into an album with another page using the same pattern.

If you can change a few features and embellishments to a page you can draw a persons eye to different aspects of the layout without them noticing right away that it is the same layout pattern!

I encourage you all to draw on this as inspiration and create your own version of this layout. Post a comment on this or any of the other layouts in this series with a link to your blog post featuring this layout pattern and I will make a post at the end of the series with a blog review and blog hop to all your blogs! So come join in on all the fun!

Let's Live Inspired!

  1. Your layouts look great. The Pemberley paper is so versatile. The yellow flowers add a great pop of color.


Thought sharing happens here!
