Pretty Paper Party - Prompt 02

Looking back over my albums I've never really scrapped with patterned paper as my base.  Recently I've opted for kraft as my background and years gone by its been bazzill card stock.  So this prompt was something a little new for me.

I must admit I'm a little stash hoarder to!!  I bought the papers I used on this layout over a year ago, at the time I loved the colours but didn't have a use for them so they have been in the draw ever since.  They are from one of the 'My Minds Eye' collections that were on sale in Hobbycraft.

I chose the least striking paper for the background and built up on this.  I made the scalloped edges by drawing round a 2p piece then carefully cut them out and inked the edge.  I can now say that I will try patterned paper as a background again.


  1. I'm loving the pink and turquoise together:)

  2. Great layout! Love the title. :)

  3. Love your page! I'm not much for using patterned paper as the background, but I'm going to give this a try.
