Hello everyone, this is Kim here today to share a light and airy layout featuring a little of double dutch and the handmade collections. All of the collections have a little something for everyone. Personally I love polka dots. Just something about them reminds me of a party with big balloons and confetti!
On this layout I was struck by the great polka dot paper in the double dutch line and used it as the main focus of my page. I like to play with the white space on a page so I used several blocks in different areas and stapled them down using my tiny attacher.
I love dressing up my pages with florals of all kinds and can never seem to complete a layout without them. Using my leaf punch I punched several leaves out of one of my papers and formed them around several of my patterned blocks.
To complete the page I made a little watercolor banner from one of the collection stamps and adhered it directly below my photo. Just a few dabs onto each part of the banner to create a sort of ombre effect was all I needed.
(Supplies Used: Lily Bee Double Dutch "lemonade" Patterned Paper, handmade "linen" paper, Buttercup "Queen bee" paper, Double Dutch Stamp set, and Martha Stewart leaf Punch)
Thanks for stopping by today for a little inspiration!
