Today I want to share with you a layout created with Lily Bee's new collection, Head Over Heels.
One of my favorite papers from this collection is the blue doily/chevron paper, "Dreamy". I used a portion of this paper for a CHA booth layout (hence why you see doilies cut out of the paper below), however, I was determined to use every inch of this paper because it's just gorgeous!
I know many of us are wanting to use up our stash of paper (or scraps!) to make room for all the new lines that will be available soon. So today, I wanted to show you how I used a "pre-used" piece of pattern paper to make a layout.
First, I layered the "Dreamy" pattern paper on top of "Flirt"- a gorgeous pink damask pattern paper in the Head Over Heels Collection. It created a wonderful contrast and really brought out the doily pattern.
Next, I added a kraft envelope, and layered the text chipboard stickers in the Lovely collection over the doily cut outs. I was really excited to see that the shapes fit perfectly together!
I added a few cardstock stickers from the Head over Heels collection down the side of my layout. I used the ABC stickers to change the "Be Mine" sticker to say "She's Mine" in order to fit my topic.
Finally, I finished the layout with my title and handcut flowers from the pattern paper Swoon (which is appropriately named if you ask me!).
I hope this layout inspires you to be creative with some of the pieces in your stash that have been pre-used!
