Maximize Your Patterned Paper

Do you ever say, “I am going to need to buy 2 pieces of that paper because both sides are fabulous!” I do. All the time. But what if you really only have one sheet?  How do you best maximize that one piece of paper? I usually start by finding which side I want to focus on. Here it was the sunburst side that I really wanted to use more. So I cut a slightly larger than 6 inch piece of that side.

I felt like a needed something in between the sunburst pattern and cardstock so I cut the edge off the Elle’s Studio paper and it made a nice trim!  Then I layered the speech bubbles, stickers and Pink Paislee arrow. Finally I made the title by mixing the Thickers and Jillibean word sticker and adding some Jenni Bowlin rubons (anyone else LOVE those? They are like BUTTER)!
