Hello again! It's Jessy with you today. I'm super excited to share this layout that I created with Maggie Holmes latest collection called “Gather”. I absolutely love how this collection gives a cozy & homespun feel to my layout. I also adore how this collection can be used in so many themes/topics.
One of my favorite go-to tools, that is always nearby, is my faithful precision scissors. I love being able to use Crate Paper patterned papers in fun and unusual ways and fussy-cutting is one way to do just that. Fussy-cutting is pretty therapeutic to me. I've also used fun elements from the new Gather collection, specifically focused on the texture & dimension of the patterned papers and ephemera.
I love layering and by doing so, it gives a lot of depth to my design and also a flow of all the elements together. I sure love that the photo in the middle steals the show among all the beautiful floral around it. It sure gives a very warm + cozy feel to my layout.
Adding other fussy-cutting elements, like the bird among the floral, will create a 'fuller' design to your layout.
Foam dots are another one of my favorite supplies. By adhering them behind your fussy-cut elements, it instantly creates a dimension.
That's it from me today! Be sure to grab the Gather collection from your fav/nearby scrapbooking store. I'm pretty sure you don't want to miss this stunning collection.
Enjoy your day and happy crafting!
