Hey there crafty friends! It’s Enza, and today I’m kicking off Paper Pads week on the blog. Paper Pads are versatile and convenient and can be used for any project in a variety of ways. I love the smaller sizes as they feature a miniature version of the bigger patterned papers, but also the 12×12 one that groups most of the papers in a collection, sometimes with foil accents, and usually contains doubles of them so you don’t take the risk of running out 😉
My layout was mostly created with papers from the Pick-Me-Up Paper Pads: 2×2”, 6×6”, and 12×12”.
I started by cutting a big title from one of the 12×12” papers. I went with a solid color, as I knew I wanted to back each letter with papers from the 2×2” Paper Pads. The clean lines of the Label Maker Font cut file worked perfectly for the idea I had in mind.
I prepared my background with scalloped strips that I fussy cut from Oh My Heart Paper 17 and hand-stitched with coordinating embroidery floss onto white cardstock. Once all the letters were ready, I arranged them on top of the strips in a wonky way. You can see I decreased the size of the letters slightly as they went down the page, so to draw the eye towards the photos. I kept the embellishments around the pictures pretty minimal – a few die cuts and chipboard stickers, just to add color, and a camera and “Love You” banner which were fussy cut from the 2×2” Paper Pads.
I’m pretty happy with how this layout turned out! Paper Pads are a must-have in your stash and sometimes they’re all you need to create amazing projects!
Thank you for stopping by!
