Hi everyone! Paige Evans here today with a layout featuring the brand new Confetti Wishes collection!
As soon as I saw Paper 07 with all the colors I knew I had to use it on a layout. I mean, ALL THE COLORS! Makes my heart so happy. First I die cut 12 scalloped borders – one from each colored stripe. Then I went through my sewing notions and found threads to machine stitch through all of the borders. This took a bit longer than I anticipated and it’s sooooo not perfect, but I love the overall look and texture it adds!
Next I went through all of the 12×12 papers and the 6×6 Paper Pad and punched half circles from every design and color and adhered them to their coordinating color of scalloped border. I fiddled around trying to pick a patterned paper background, but ultimately decided on a light kraft cardstock. I love how the colors pop against this neutral shade.
Then I played with the placement of the scalloped borders – do I make them straight? Or skiwampus? Trim them to all different widths? I decided to make them a little bit crooked and trimmed off one scallop from a few of the borders. I kept them in the same color arrangement as the original patterned paper they came from – why change a good thing?!
Confetti Wishes is a birthday-themed line, but the photos I chose were simply of my daughter scrapping with me! So I picked and pulled pieces from the collection that aren’t necessarily birthday-themed, but still convey my feelings about this moment. My daughter LOVES birds SO MUCH so I added a few of them here and there. She’s five years old so I added a “5” puffy sticker. There are a lot of sentiment stickers that I placed color-on-color that fit the theme. So I went with the color-on-color technique to add pops of texture and fun around the page.
To finish I placed a “together” title under the photos and typed “scrapping” to fit above. I journaled along one of the borders with a pencil and that finished up the layout! I hope you can see how Confetti Wishes can be used for pages that aren’t birthday-themed! The colors are so bright and happy and can be used with a plethora of topics, even scrapping with your bestie
